जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

सत्यं ब्रूयात् प्रियं ब्रूयात्

सत्यं ब्रूयात् प्रियं ब्रूयात् न ब्रूयात् सत्यमप्रियम्।
प्रियं च न अनृतम् ब्रूयात् एष धर्मस्सनातनः॥
satyaṁ brūyāt priyaṁ brūyāt na brūyāt satyamapriyam|
priyaṁ ca na anṛtam brūyāt eṣa dharmassanātanaḥ||

"Speak the truth, speak pleasant truths; do not say the unpleasant truth.
Also, do not fabricate pleasant untruths, this is the eternal practice."
