Dhammapada 7

Subhanupassim viharantam

indriyesu asamvutam

bhojanamhi camattannum

kusitam hinaviriyam

tam ve pasahati Maro

vato rukkhamva dubbalam.

He who keeps his mind on pleasant objects, who is uncontrolled in his senses, immoderate in his food, and is lazy and lacking in energy, will certainly be overwhelmed by Mara, just as stormy winds uproot a weak tree.
