Thiruvalluvar's Couplets On 'learning' - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

391. Learn comprehensively what you ought to learn.
And behave in accordance with your learning.
392. The two things numbers and the letters
are the eyes to all human beings.
393. Those who have eyes are said to be the learned.
But the illiterates have pairs of sores in their faces.
394. The nature of the learned is to meet with joy,
be closer and part with pain.
395. Like poor, they are submissive and willing before the erudite
Yet the learned stand first and the ignorants the last.
396. The more you dig in a sandy well, the more water springs up.
The more knowledge wells up, the more you learn.
397. To the learned every land is his own and every town his home.
Then why he idles time away not learning till death?
398. Education acquired in one birth
brings him repute in all his seven births.
399. The learned love to learn more lore
as the world enjoys from what it pleases them.
400. Education is one’s imperishable, edifying wealth.
Not other riches matter.
