Words of Wisdom

Wise men, holding wisdom highest, scorn delights, more false than fair; Daily live as if Death’s fingers twined already in thy hair! Truly, richer than all riches, better than the best of gain, Wisdom is; unbound, secure once won, none loseth her again. Bringing dark things into daylight, solving doubts that vex the mind, Like an open eye is Wisdom — he that hath her not is blind.- Hitopadesa

More Words of Wisdom

“Birds do not perch on trees where there is no fruit; wild beasts leave the forests when the leaves of the trees have fallen and there is no more shade for them; insects leave plants where there are no Ionger flowers; leeches leave springs which no longer flow; women leave men who have become old or poverty-stricken; a minister leaves the service of an obstinate king; servants leave a master who has been reduced to poverty. Thus it is that self-interest is the motive of everything in this world.” – Niti Sastra
