Speaking to an audience of understanding men Is like watering a bed of growing plants. Those who speak good things to good and learned gatherings Should never say them to ignorant groups, even forgetfully. Speaking before men of alien mind Is like pouring sweet nectar down a drain.
- Tirukkural 72:718-720
It is hard to be born as a human being and hard to live the life of one. It is even harder to hear of the path and harder still to awake, to rise, and to follow. Yet the teaching is simple: "Cease to do evil, learn to do good. And purify your mind."
