संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

स्फुटवक्ता न वाञ्चकः

निःस्पृहो नाधिकारी स्यान्नाकामी मण्डनप्रियः।
नाविदग्धः प्रियं ब्रूयात् स्फुटवक्ता न वाञ्चकः॥१७५॥
— मित्रभेदः नाम प्रथमे तन्त्रे देवशर्म-परिव्राजक कथा ४
niḥspṛho nādhikārī syānnākāmī maṇḍanapriyaḥ|
nāvidagdhaḥ priyaṁ brūyāt sphuṭavaktā na vāñcakaḥ||175||
— mitrabhedaḥ nāma prathame tantre devaśarma-parivrājaka kathā 4
One without ambition does not hold an authoritative position; One  fallen out of love does not care to adorn himself.
One who lacks learning displays no eloquence; One who is blunt in speech is never a cheat!
