Unchastity is the taint in a woman; niggardliness is the taint in a giver. Taints, indeed, are all evil things, both in this world and the next.
A worse taint than these is ignorance, the worst of all taints. Destroy this one taint and become taintless, O monks!
(Translated by Acharya Buddharakkhita)
