Unforgetfulness (By St. Thiruvalluvar) - Poem by Rajendran Muthiah

531.Excess wrath is not worse than forgetfulness
That results when you go into raptures.
532.As penury ruins wisdom (of the wise)
Forgetfulness obliterates fame.
533.The self-oblivious never attain acclaim.
Authors of all works of virtue accept it.
534.No use of defence to the timid.
And the fabulous wealth of the forgetful is of no use.
535.The forgetful who foresee not the disaster
repent later for their faults when it strikes.
536.There is no greater gain than unfailing memory
at all times and for all the people.
537.With the tool of rememberance if one thinks and does deeds
There is nothing impossible to him.
538.Think and do deeds acclaimed by the wise.
If you forget to do, joy is not yours for all seven births.
539.When your pleasure makes you proud
Remember those ruined out of forgetfulness.
540.If one retains what he thought in mind
It is easy to attain in the way he thought.
