द्वावम्भसि निष्टेव्यौ

द्वावम्भसि निष्टेव्यौ गले बद्ध्‌वा दृढां शिलाम्।
धनवन्तम् अदातारम् दरिद्रं चातपस्विनम्॥
dvāvambhasi niṣṭevyau gale baddhvā dṛḍhāṁ śilām|
dhanavantam adātāram daridraṁ cātapasvinam||
Two kinds of people should be drowned in water, bound by a heavy stone to the neck!
One who is rich but does not give (charity), and one who is poor and does not work hard!

अप्रदाता समृद्धोऽसौ

अप्रदाता समृद्धोऽसौ दरिद्रश्च महामनाः।
अश्रुतश्च समुन्नद्धस्तमाहुर्मूढचेतसम्॥
apradātā samṛddho’sau daridraśca mahāmanāḥ|
aśrutaśca samunnaddhastamāhurmūḍhacetasam||
One who does not help others, though prosperous; one who is poor, but generous
One who is ignorant but proud — these are said to be fools.
