अनभ्यासे विषं विद्या

अनभ्यासे विषं विद्या अजीर्णे भोजनं विषं।
विषं सभा दरिद्रस्य वृद्धस्य तरुणी विषं॥
anabhyāse viṣaṁ vidyā ajīrṇe bhojanaṁ viṣaṁ|
viṣaṁ sabhā daridrasya vṛddhasya taruṇī viṣaṁ||

Without practice, knowledge is poison; on indigestion, food is poison;
For a poor man, a social gathering is poison; for an old man, a maiden is poison.
