संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

खलसज्जननानाम् मैत्री

आरम्भगुर्वी क्षयिणी क्रमेण
लघ्वी पुरा वृद्धिमती च पश्चात्।
दिनस्य पूर्वार्द्धपरार्द्धभिन्ना
छायेव मैत्री खलसज्जननानाम्॥
— पञ्चतन्त्रम् – मित्रसम्प्राप्तिः – कथामुखम् ३९
ārambhagurvī kṣayiṇī krameṇa
laghvī purā vṛddhimatī ca paścāt|
dinasya pūrvārddhaparārddhabhinnā
chāyeva maitrī khalasajjananānām||
— pañcatantram – mitrasamprāptiḥ – kathāmukham 39

Starts on a high and declines thereon, small to begin with but grows thereafter.
Like the shadow of the morning and the evening, is the friendship with the bad and the good (respectively).
