संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

विद्वान्‌ सर्वत्र पूज्यते

विद्वत्त्वं च नृपत्वं च नैव तुल्ये कदाचन।
स्वदेशे पूज्यते राजा विद्वान्‌ सर्वत्र पूज्यते॥
vidvattvaṁ ca nṛpatvaṁ ca naiva tulye kadācana|
svadeśe pūjyate rājā vidvān sarvatra pūjyate||

"Being a scholar and being a king are never comparable.
A king is worshipped in his own country whereas a scholar is respected everywhere."
(Thanks to Kedar)
