संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

परोपकाराय सतां विभूतयः

पिबन्ति नद्यः स्वयमेव नाम्भः स्वयं न खादन्ति फलानि वृक्षाः।
नादन्ति स्वस्यं खलु वारिवाहाः परोपकाराय सतां विभूतयः॥
pibanti nadyaḥ svayameva nāmbhaḥ svayaṁ na khādanti phalāni vṛkṣāḥ|
nādanti svasyaṁ khalu vārivāhāḥ paropakārāya satāṁ vibhūtayaḥ||
The rivers don’t drink their waters themselves; the trees don’t eat their own fruits.
The clouds do not eat the crops they have watered; in the same way, the wealth of the good people are for helping others (they don’t consume their own wealth)

Alternate version:

रत्नाकरः किं करोति स्वरत्नैः
विन्ध्याचलः किं करिभिः करोति
श्रीखन्ण्डकण्डैः मलयाचलः किं
परोपकाराय सतां विभूतयः
