जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

दाता लक्षेषु जायते

शतेषु जायते शूरः सहस्रेषु च पण्डितः।
वक्ता दशसहस्रेषु दाता लक्षेषु जायते॥
śateṣu jāyate śūraḥ sahasreṣu ca paṇḍitaḥ|
vaktā daśasahasreṣu dātā lakṣeṣu jāyate||
"A brave man is born among hundred persons; a learned scholar, among thousand.
A great orator is one among ten thousand, [but a] great generous donor, one in a lakh!"
