नरत्वं दुर्लभं लॊकॆ विद्य तत्र सुदुर्लभं

कवित्वं दुर्लभं तत्र शक्तिस्तत्र सुदुर्लभं

Naratvam durlabham lokay, vidya tatra sudrulabham

kavitvam durlabham tatra, shakti statra sudurlabham 

Agni Purana

To born as a Human is difficult to attain. Even if born as a human, knowledge is difficult to gain
Even if knowledge is gained, gaining poetry is tough. Even if poetry is mastered, having the power to create a great poem is tough
