काकचेष्टा बकध्यानं श्वाननिद्राल्पभोजनम्।
स्वाध्यायः संयमश्च छात्राणां लक्षणानि षट्॥
kākaceṣṭā bakadhyānaṁ śvānanidrālpabhojanam |
svādhyāyaḥ saṁyamaśca chātrāṇāṁ lakṣaṇāni ṣaṭ ||
Intentiveness akin to a crow’s, concentration like that of a crane, light sleep like that of a dog’s, the consumption of moderate food, application to one’s studies and self control. These are the six signs of a good student.
