जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

मौनेन कलहो नास्ति

कृषितो नास्ति दुर्भिक्षं जपतो नास्ति पातकम्‌।
मौनेन कलहो नास्ति नास्ति जागरतो भयम्‌॥
kṛṣito nāsti durbhikṣaṁ japato nāsti pātakam |
maunena kalaho nāsti nāsti jāgarato bhayam ||
For the one who farms, there is no famine; for the one who prays (does japa), there are no sins. Silence keeps away quarrels and fear, by taking proper precautionary measures.

मौनं सर्वार्थ साधनम्

आत्मनः मुखदोषेण बध्यन्ते शुकसारिकाः।
बकाः तत्र न बध्यन्ते मौनं सर्वार्थ साधनम्॥
ātmanaḥ mukhadoṣeṇa badhyante śukasārikāḥ |
bakāḥ tatra na badhyante maunaṁ sarvārtha sādhanam ||

"By the fault of their own mouth, parrots and mynahs are caught.
Storks, however are not caught — silence is an instrument that achieves all ends."

[Thanks to Kedar]
