DISGRACE AND DEATH ARE BETTER, SOME TIMES

My friend, it is better to be disgraced by good people than to have as an ornament the association of bad people.  Glory comes to him who is trampled underfoot by a gallant horse [in battle] and not to the one seated animatedly on a donkey.

वरं सखे सत्पुरुषापमानितो  न नीचसंसर्गगुणैरलङ्कृतः /  वराश्वपादेन हतो विराजते न रासभस्योपरि संस्थितो नरः //

varam sakhE sathpuruSHApamAnithO na nIchasamsargaguNairalankrthaha /  varAshvapAdhEna hathO virAjathE na rAsabhasyOpari samsTHithO naraha //
