நல்லார் ஒருவர்க்குச் செய்த உபகாரம்
கல்மேல் எழுத்துப் போல் காணுமே - அல்லாத
ஈரமிலா நெஞ்சத்தார்க்கு ஈந்த உபகாரம்
நீர் மேல் எழுத்துக்கு நேர்.

அடக்கம் உடையார் அறிவிலர் என்று எண்ணிக்
கடக்கக் கருதவும் வேண்டா - மடைத் தலையில்
ஓடுமீன் ஓட உறுமீன் வரும் அளவும்
வாடி இருக்குமாம் கொக்கு.

ஔவையார்

மன்னனும் மாசு அறக் கற்றோனும் சீர் தூக்கின்
மன்னனில் கற்றோன் சிறப்பு உடையன் - மன்னர்க்குத்
தன் தேசம் அல்லால் சிறப்பு இல்லை கற்றோர்க்குச்
சென்ற இடம் எல்லாம் சிறப்பு.

ஔவையார்

wow! This is more like what I had in mind when I started this thread.:clap2:
Thanks to everyone for the motivating, educating and philosophical quotes.

Let us make our words and quotes helpful to everyone. :)

When 90% of the self proclaimed poets themselves are not poets,
a simple minded and honest man accepting that
he is not a poet need not upset anyone.
I like honest and frank people. :thumb:

Optimism

I gather the rose from the thorn,
the gold from the earth,
the pearl from the oyster.
St. Jerome

The optimist proclaims that
we live in the best of all possible worlds;
and the pessimist fears this is true.
James Campbell.
