संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

वरमेको गुणी पुत्रो

वरमेको गुणी पुत्रो न च मूर्खशतान्यपि।
एकश्चन्द्रस्तमो हन्ति न च तारागणोऽपि च॥
varameko guṇī putro na ca mūrkhaśatānyapi|
ekaścandrastamo hanti na ca tārāgaṇo'pi ca||

"Even one son who has good qualities is a boon, against even a hundred who are fools. [Just like] one moon that dispels darkness, but not even a barrage of stars!"
