जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

अपि पौरुषमादेयं

अपि पौरुषमादेयं शास्त्रं चेद्युक्तिबोधकम्।
अन्यत्त्वार्षमपि त्याज्यं भाव्यं न्याय्यैकसेविना॥
api pauruṣamādeyaṁ śāstraṁ cedyuktibodhakam|
anyattvārṣamapi tyājyaṁ bhāvyaṁ nyāyyaikasevinā||

"One who ever stands for reason must accept a science, though man made, if it stands to reason; and he must reject the other (the unreasonable) though it may be propounded by the sages (of yore). "
