कृशे कस्यस्ति सुहृदम्

वनानि दहतो वह्ने सखा भवति मारुतः।
स एव दीपनाशाय कृशे कस्यस्ति सुहृदम्॥
vanāni dahato vahne sakhā bhavati mārutaḥ|
sa eva dīpanāśāya kṛśe kasyasti suhṛdam||
When fires destroy forests, the wind is there to assist it.
The same wind destroys a small lamp — in times of weakness, who has friends?
