excess of anything invite danger

अतिरूपेण वा सीता अतिगर्वेण रावणः।
अतिदानाद् बलिर् बद्धोह्यति सर्वत्र वर्जयेत्॥१२॥
चाणक्य नीति
atirūpeṇa vā sītā atigarveṇa rāvaṇaḥ |
atidānād balir baddhohyati sarvatra varjayet ||12||
cāṇakya nīti

അതി രൂപേണ വാ സീതാ അതിഗര്‍വേണ രാവണ
അതിദാനാത് ബലിര്‍ബദ്ധ അതി സര്‍വത്ര വര്‍ജയെത്

It is perhaps  on account of excessive beauty that Devi Sita had to languish in the captivity of Ravana. 
Ravana was finally destroyed by his limitless arrogance. 
Mahabali had to suffer the tightness of the rope of Varuna because of his excessive generosity. 
 Therefore, vice or virtue, excesses should always be avoided.

Mahabli had promised three feet of land to Vamana who changed his shape and measured the entire univers with two feetlengths and Bali had to offer his own crow as the third measure.. then his army started to attack the Thrivikram, the lord in universal form and to end the strife and complete the deal the Lord tied Bali with varunapasam and sent him to an abode in a lower world. The consequences or Mata Sitas beauty and Ravanas arrogance are too well known, 
So the master chanakya advices moderation in place of excursiveness in all fields.
