संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

कीर्तिर्यस्य स जीवति

स जीवति यशो यस्य कीर्तिर्यस्य स जीवति।
अयशोऽकीर्तिसंयुक्तः जीवन्नपि मृतोपमः॥
sa jīvati yaśo yasya kīrtiryasya sa jīvati|
ayaśo'kīrtisaṁyuktaḥ jīvannapi mṛtopamaḥ||
"He lives [in the true sense], whose fame and reputation are existent in the world.
One whose infamy and slander is spread in the world, though alive, is as good as dead."
