The poverty of knowledgeable persons is more worthy!


The girl who wears garland of honey-filled
…flowers and dignified ornaments!

If you think aloud and consider, the old ghee
…shall never be worse than the fresh butter-milk!

Likewise, the poverty of knowledgeable persons
…is more worthy than the wealth of illiterate persons!
