कुसुमस्तबकस्येव द्वयी वृत्तिर्मनस्विन:।
मूर्ध्नि वा सर्वलोकस्य विशीर्येत वनेऽथवा॥

kusuma stabakasyeva dwayee vrutthir manasvinah
Moorndhi va sarvalokasya visheeryat vane thava

People with high self respect have only two stages like flowers
Either they should be on top of the world or just shrivel away

स्थानं उत्सृज्य गच्चंती सिम्हाहा सत्पुरुषा गजः
तत्र एव निधानं यान्ति काकः कापुरुषा मृगः

Sthaanam Utsrujya gacchanti Simhaaha satpurusha gajaaha |
Tatra eva nidhanam yaanti Kaakaha kapurusha mrugaaha ||

The lions, elephants and the virtuous people with high self-esteem quit their position immediately once their esteem is hurt. The crows, cats and the vicious people wish to continue in the same position
