विनयस्तत्र सुदुर्लभः

नरत्वं दुर्लभं लोके विद्या तत्र सुदुर्लभा।
शीलं च दुर्लभं तत्र विनयस्तत्र सुदुर्लभः॥
In this world, to take birth in the human race is rare, wherein to obtain knowledge and wisdom is even harder. Further to have a noble character is harder and further still is modesty.

भवन्ति नम्रास्तरवः फलोद्गमैः

भवन्ति नम्रास्तरवः फलोद्गमैः
नवाम्बुभिर्दूरविलम्बिनो घनाः।
अनुद्धताः सत्पुरुषाः समृद्धिभिः
स्वभाव एवैष परोपकारिणाम्॥
bhavanti namrāstaravaḥ phalodgamaiḥ
navāmbubhirdūravilambino ghanāḥ|
anuddhatāḥ satpuruṣāḥ samṛddhibhiḥ
svabhāva evaiṣa paropakāriṇām||

"Mango and othe trees bend down when they bear fruits;
Clouds hang low when they are full of water.
Gentle men become polite when they attain wealth.
Humility is the nature of generous people (those who help others)"

विद्या ददाति विनयं

विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद् याति पात्रताम्।
पात्रत्वाद्धनमाप्नोति धनाद्धर्मं ततः सुखम्॥
vidyā dadāti vinayaṁ vinayād yāti pātratām|
pātratvāddhanamāpnoti dhanāddharmaṁ tataḥ sukham||

"Knowledge gives humility, from humility, one attains character;
From character, one acquires wealth; from wealth good deeds (righteousness) follow and then happiness"

विद्या ददाति विनयं is the slogan of some institute too.. can't recall rightaway.
