संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

किं वाससा

किं वाससा इत्यत्र विचारणीयं
वासः प्रधानं खलु योग्यतायै।
पीताम्बरं वीक्ष्य ददौ स्वकन्यां
दिगम्बरं वीक्ष्य विषं समुद्रः॥
kiṁ vāsasā ityatra vicāraṇīyaṁ
vāsaḥ pradhānaṁ khalu yogyatāyai |
pītāmbaraṁ vīkṣya dadau svakanyāṁ
digambaraṁ vīkṣya viṣaṁ samudraḥ ||

Sanskrit humour…
""What's in one's dress" — is a point for contemplation;
apparel is indeed important for appropriateness;
Looking at the one dressed in bright yellow clothes (Mahavishnu), the ocean gave him his daughter;
seeing the one dressed in nothing (Lord Shiva) it gave him poison!"

Thanks again to Kedar/Saketh.
