यद्यदाचरति श्रेष्ठः

यद्यदाचरति श्रेष्ठः तत्तदेवेतरो जनः।
स यत्प्रमाणम् कुरुते लोकस्तदनुवर्तते॥
– भगवद्गीता ३.२१
yadyadācarati śreṣṭhaḥ tattadevetaro janaḥ|
sa yatpramāṇam kurute lokastadanuvartate||
(bhagavadgītā 3.21)

For whatever a great man does, that very thing other men also do;
Whatever standards he sets up, the generality of men follow the same.
