संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

छिन्नोऽपि रोहति तरुः

छिन्नोऽपि रोहति तरुः क्षीणोऽप्युपचीयते पुनश्चन्द्रः।
इति विमृशन्तः सन्तः सन्तप्यन्ते न विप्लुता लोके॥८६॥
— भर्तृहरेः नीतिशतकम्
chinno'pi rohati taruḥ kṣīṇo'pyupacīyate punaścandraḥ|
iti vimṛśantaḥ santaḥ santapyante na viplutā loke||86||
— bhartṛhareḥ nītiśatakam

"When cut, a tree grows again; even after waning, the moon waxes again.
With this in mind, the great ones do not get perturbed in this world even when in distress."
