संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

ऋणशेषोऽग्निशेषश्च

ऋणशेषोऽग्निशेषश्च शत्रुशेषस्तथैव च।
पुनः पुनः प्रवर्धन्ते तस्माच्छेषन्न रक्षयेत्॥
ṛṇaśeṣo'gniśeṣaśca śatruśeṣastathaiva ca|
punaḥ punaḥ pravardhante tasmāccheṣanna rakṣayet||

"Remainder of debt, fire and enemies are alike.
They keep growing repeatedly — so one must never maintain any balance!"

[Thanks to Kedar]
