हितोपदेश - मित्रलाभ - धर्म

को धर्मो भूतदया किं सौख्यमरोगिता जगति जन्तोः ।
कः स्नेहः सद्भावः किं पाण्डित्यं परिच्छेदः ॥

- हितोपदेश, मित्रलाभ

What is dharma? Having compassion towards all beings. What is happiness? Being healthy is happiness. What is friendship? Not having hard feelings towards any one is friendship. What is scholarly wisdom? The art of dissection (ability to logically breakdown a problem and its intricacies).

- Hitopadesha, Mitralabha
