सहृच्च विद्वानपि दुर्लभ

मनीषिणाः सन्ति न ते हितैषिणः
    हितैषिणः सन्ति न ते मनीषिणाः ।
सहृच्च विद्वानपि दुर्लभो नृणां
    यथौषधं स्वादु हितञ्च दुर्लभम् ॥
There are intellectuals but they are not well-wishers. There are well wishers but they are not intellectual. It is hard to find a kind hearted person who is also intelligent - just like it is hard to find medicine that also tastes well.
