संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

गुणवदगुणवद्वा कुर्वता

गुणवदगुणवद्वा कुर्वता कार्यमादौ
परिणतिरवधार्यां यत्नतः पण्डितेन।
अतिरभसकृतानां कर्मणानां विपत्तेः
भवति हृदयदाही शल्यतुल्यो विपाकः।
guṇavadaguṇavadvā kurvatā kāryamādau
pariṇatiravadhāryāṁ yatnataḥ paṇḍitena|
atirabhasakṛtānāṁ karmaṇānāṁ vipatteḥ
bhavati hṛdayadāhī śalyatulyo vipākaḥ|

"Before taking any action, whether good or bad,
wise men should carefully ponder over its consequences.
[Or else], the results of acts done in haste
keep piercing the heart like an arrow even after death."
