जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

पञ्चैते मातरः स्मृताः

राजपत्नी गुरोः पत्नी भ्रातृपत्नी तथैव च।
पत्नीमाता स्वमाता च पञ्चैते मातरः स्मृताः॥
rājapatnī guroḥ patnī bhrātṛpatnī tathaiva ca|
patnīmātā svamātā ca pañcaite mātaraḥ smṛtāḥ||
"The wife of the king, the wife of the teacher, the wife of the elder brother, the mother of one's own wife and one's own mother — These are considered the five mothers of a man"
