कुपितोऽपि गुणायैव

कुपितोऽपि गुणायैव गुणवान् भवति ध्रुवम्।
स्वभावमधुरं क्षीरं क्वथितं हि रसोत्तरम्॥
kupito'pi guṇāyaiva guṇavān bhavati dhruvam|
svabhāvamadhuraṁ kṣīraṁ kvathitaṁ hi rasottaram||

"A man possessing good qualities surely serves only a good cause even when he gets angry;
Milk which is sweet by nature becomes all the more tasty when it is boiled."
