संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

वानरहस्तेषु कोमलाः कुसुमस्रजः

मा दद्यात् खलसङ्घेषु कल्पनामधुरागिरः।
यथा वानरहस्तेषु कोमलाः कुसुमस्रजः॥
mā dadyāt khalasaṅgheṣu kalpanāmadhurāgiraḥ|
yathā vānarahasteṣu komalāḥ kusumasrajaḥ||
Do not speak sweet words unto wicked people;
[it is the same as] a garland of soft flowers in the hands of a monkey!
(This must be the source for the popular aphorism in தமிழ்குரங்கு கையில் பூமாலை)
