“Let the rich satisfy the poor implorer, and bend his eye upon a longer pathway.
Riches come now to one, now to another, and like the wheels of cars are ever rolling.”  Rig Veda (Book 10, Hymn 117.5)

“The foolish man wins food with fruitless labour: that food -I speak the truth- shall be his ruin.
He feeds no trusty friend, no man to love him. All guilt is he who eats with no partaker.”  Rig Veda (Book 10, Hymn 117.6)

“The ploughshare plowing makes the food that feeds us, and with its feet cuts through the path it follows.
Better the speaking than the silent brahmin: the liberal friend out-values him who gives not.”  Rig Veda (Book 10, Hymn 117.7)

As implied in the above Rig Veda hymn (Book 10, Hymn 117.7), brahmins were the voice of society, which is also indicated in Purusha Sukta hymn in the Rig Veda implying brahmins as the mouth; more details on this in the following,
