संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

कोकिलानां स्वरो रूपं

कोकिलानां स्वरो रूपं पातिव्रत्यं तु योषिताम्‌।
विद्या रूपं विरूपाणां क्षमा रूपं तपस्विनाम्‌॥
kokilānāṁ svaro rūpaṁ pātivratyaṁ tu yoṣitām |
vidyā rūpaṁ virūpāṇāṁ kṣamā rūpaṁ tapasvinām ||
The voice is the beauty of cuckoos, character (devotedness to husband) is the beauty of women,
Learning is the beauty of the deformed and patience/forgiveness is the beauty of ascetics.
