The Wealth Of The People Of Excellent And Generous Quality! - Poem by Dr.V.K. Kanniappan
The wealth of the people of excellent and generous quality
…is like the whores who are utilized and enjoyed by everybody!
Likewise, the wealth of the people with excellent and generous quality
…will be useful to everybody in this world forever!
The wealth of the people of average quality and self contented
…is like the family woman who is enjoyable only by her husband!
Likewise, the wealth of the selfish and self contented people
…is useful only to the closely related members of his family!
The wealth of the people of low and mean minded
…is like a widowed woman who lost all her charm!
Likewise, the wealth of the low and mean minded persons
…is not at all useful for any worthy cause to anybody!

பொதுமகளே போல்வ தலையாயார் செல்வம்
குறமகளே ஏனையோர் செல்வம் - கலனழிந்த

செல்வம் பயன்படுவ தில்.66. - நீதிநெறி விளக்கம்
