Three views of a scholarly person for being a human!
One should not lose self control to follow her in suit,
Even if a woman comes after you with desire and lust!
One should not have fondly desire for other’s articles what may,
Even if it reaches your hand after a long search of you!
One does not mind without due regard for the virtuous life,
Desirous of assets like land etc considering not, what is unsafe!
Are the above said three views of a scholarly person
Who read the books with subtle ideas for being a human!

பெண் விழைந்து பின் செலினும், தன் செலவில் குன்றாமை;
கண் விழைந்து கையுறினும், காதல் பொருட்கு இன்மை;
மண் விழைந்து, வாழ் நாள் மதியாமை; -இம் மூன்றும்
