जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

शीलपरीक्षा धनक्षये

आपदि मित्रपरीक्षा शूरपरीक्षा रणाङ्गणे।
विनये वंशपरीक्षा शीलपरीक्षा धनक्षये॥
āpadi mitraparīkṣā śūraparīkṣā raṇāṅgaṇe|
vinaye vaṁśaparīkṣā śīlaparīkṣā dhanakṣaye||

"A friend's test is in calamity; the test of a valiant person is on the battlefield.
The test of a family is in its humility and the test of one's character is in poverty."
