Lord Krishna, Bhagavad Gita 2.47

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन। 
मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि॥ २-४७

Karmanye vadhikaraste Ma Phaleshu Kadachana| 
Ma Karmaphalaheturbhurma Te Sangostvakarmani|| 2.47

You have the right to work only but never to its fruits. 
Let not the fruits of action be your motive, nor let your attachment be to inaction.
- Lord Krishna, Bhagavad Gita 2.47

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), Indian spiritual leader

Experience has taught me that silence is part of the spiritual discipline of a votary of truth. Proneness to exaggerate, to suppress or modify the truth, wittingly or unwittingly, is a natural weakness of man and silence is necessary in order to surmount it.
-- Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948), Indian spiritual leader
