हंसैर्यथा क्षीरमिवाम्बुमध्यात्‌

अनन्तपारं किल शब्दशास्त्रम्
स्वल्पं तथाऽऽयुर्बहवश्च विघ्नाः।
सारं ततो ग्राह्यमपास्य फल्गु
हंसैर्यथा क्षीरमिवाम्बुमध्यात्‌॥
anantapāraṁ kila śabdaśāstram
svalpaṁ tathā”yurbahavaśca vighnāḥ |
sāraṁ tato grāhyamapāsya phalgu
haṁsairyathā kṣīramivāmbumadhyāt ||
Boundless indeed is the science of language,
but life is short and obstacles are numerous.
Hence take what is good and leave what is worthless,
as geese/swan take milk from the midst of water.
