संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

श्रोत्रं श्रुतेनैव

श्रोत्रं श्रुतेनैव न कुण्डलेन दानेन पाणिर्न तु कङ्कणेन।
विभाति कायः करुणापराणां परोपकारैर्न तु चन्दनेन॥
śrotraṁ śrutenaiva na kuṇḍalena dānena pāṇirna tu kaṅkaṇena|
vibhāti kāyaḥ karuṇāparāṇāṁ paropakārairna tu candanena||

"Ears are [adorned] by listening to scriptures, not by earrings; hands are [adorned] by charity, not by bracelets. Similarly, the body is adorned by doing good to others and not by [smearing] sandalwood."
