यथा नेच्छति निरोगः कदाचित्सुचिकित्सकं |
तथापद्रहितो राजा सचिवं नाभिवाछति ||
- पञ्चतंत्र, मित्रभेद
Just like a healthy person never wishes to go to a doctor, a king would not wish to consult a minister unless there is some trouble. But when there is trouble, a minister is as important as a doctor during illness.
- Panchatantra, Mitrabheda
