अधर्मभयभीतश्च परलोकस्य चानघ । तेन लक्ष्मण! नाद्याहं आत्मानमभिषेचये ॥

— श्रीमद्वाल्मीकिरामायणे अयोध्याकाण्डे त्रिपञ्चाशस्सर्गः (२६)

“O Lakshmana! Only because of the fear of commiting adharma, and fear of परलोकम्, I am not thinking about my coronation”. These words of ShriRaama show that one should not even think about doing an adharmic deed, even if one likes to do it a lot and even if one is a master at doing it.
