संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

विद्या मित्रं प्रवासेषु

विद्या मित्रं प्रवासेषु भार्या मित्रं गृहेषु च।
रुग्णस्य चौषधं मित्रं धर्मो मित्रं मृतस्य च॥
vidyā mitraṁ pravāseṣu bhāryā mitraṁ gṛheṣu ca|
rugṇasya cauṣadhaṁ mitraṁ dharmo mitraṁ mṛtasya ca||
"Knowledge is the friend in a foregin land; wife is the [advising and consulting] friend at home.
A medicine is the friend of the sick; Dharma is the friend of the dead [after death]."
