Thirukkural which I liked

image

Despise not men of modest bearing; Look not at form, but what men are:
For some there live, high functions sharing, Like linch-pin of the mighty car!

Mighty in word, of unforgetful mind, of fearless speech,
'Tis hard for hostile power such man to overreach.

With rising flood the rising lotus flower its stem unwinds;
The dignity of men is measured by their minds.

--- Thirukkural
