Dhammapada 166

166. Let one not neglect one’s own welfare for the sake of another, however great. Clearly understanding one’s own welfare, let one be intent upon the good.

Attadatthaṃ paratthena, bahunāpi na hāpaye;
Attadatthamabhiññāya, sadatthapasuto siyā.
Attavaggo dvādasamo niṭṭhito.

-Dhp 166

I’ll just leave this here. I have read the Dhammapada dozens of times and yet I seem to have missed this verse.
