जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

ज्येष्ठत्वं जन्मना नैव

ज्येष्ठत्वं जन्मना नैव गुणैर्ज्येष्ठत्वमुचते।
गुणात् गुरुत्वमायाति दुग्धं दधि घृतं क्रमात्॥
jyeṣṭhatvaṁ janmanā naiva guṇairjyeṣṭhatvamucate|
guṇāt gurutvamāyāti dugdhaṁ dadhi ghṛtaṁ kramāt||
Excellence is not by birth; excellence is decided by qualities [of a person].
Only by qualities, greatness comes, [just] as it increases from milk to curd to ghee.
