भाषासु मुख्या मधुरा

भाषासु मुख्या मधुरा दिव्या गीर्वाणभारती।
तस्यां हि काव्यं मधुरं तस्मादपि सुभाषितम्॥
bhāṣāsu mukhyā madhurā divyā gīrvāṇabhāratī|
tasyāṁ hi kāvyaṁ madhuraṁ tasmādapi subhāṣitam||
Of all languages, Sanskrit (gīrvāṇabhāratī) is the most important, sweet and divine.
Her literary works are sweet, more so, the subhāṣitās!

पृथिव्यां त्रीणि रत्नानि

पृथिव्यां त्रीणि रत्नानि जलमन्नं सुभाषितम्।
मूढैः पाषाणखण्डेषु रत्नसंज्ञा प्रदीयते॥
pṛthivyāṁ trīṇi ratnāni jalamannaṁ subhāṣitam|
mūḍhaiḥ pāṣāṇakhaṇḍeṣu ratnasaṁjñā pradīyate||
There are three jewels on earth — water, food and wise sayings (subhashitas).
[Only] fools call pieces of [gem] stone as jewels!

सुभाषितरसं दृष्ट्वा सुधा भीता दिवं गता

द्राक्षा म्लानमुखी जाता शर्करा चाश्मतां गता।
सुभाषितरसं दृष्ट्वा सुधा भीता दिवं गता॥
drākṣā mlānamukhī jātā śarkarā cāśmatāṁ gatā|
subhāṣitarasaṁ dṛṣṭvā sudhā bhītā divaṁ gatā||
Grape became pale, sugar turned into stone.
Seeing the sweetness of subhashitas, nectar, afraid, fled to heaven
