A King vs A Scholar

Scholarship and kingship can never become equal.  A king is respected in his kingdom; a scholar is revered everywhere. [From Vishnu Sharma’s Panchatantra‘Mitrasampraptikam’ verse 57]

विद्वत्त्वं च नृपत्वं च नैव तुल्यं कदाचन / स्वदेशे पूज्यते राजा विद्वान् सर्वत्र पूज्यते //

vidhvaththvam cha nrpathvam cha naiva thulyam kadhAchana / svadhEshE pUjyathE rAjA vidhvAn sarvathra pUjyathE //
