Nocedaṃ Sutta

  1. If there were no satisfaction (assādo) from the earth element, beings would not lust after it;
  2. if there were no misery (ādīnavo) in it, they would not be repelled by it;
  3. if there were no escape (nissaraṇaṃ) from it, beings would not so escape;
  4. when all these things are fully known, beings will live aloof from the world.

The same regarding the elements of water (āpo), fire (tejo), and air (vāyo). S.ii.172.
