संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

सहसा विदधीत न क्रियाम्

सहसा विदधीत न क्रियामविवेकः परमापदां पदम्।
वृणुते हि विमृश्यकारिणम् गुणलुब्धाः स्वयमेव सम्पदः॥
sahasā vidadhīta na kriyāmavivekaḥ paramāpadāṁ padam|
vṛṇute hi vimṛśyakāriṇam guṇalubdhāḥ svayameva sampadaḥ||

“One should not act in haste (without judgment). Bad judgment is the seat of greatest disasters.
Liking the virtue (of good judgment) wealth, itself, takes (goes) to them who think and act.”

See this post for the background of this wonderful verse by Bharavi: http://samskritwisdom.wordpress.com/2009/12/04/wisdom-from-mahakavi-bharavi-अविवेकः-परमापदां-पदम/
