कर्णभार - प्रजापालन

धर्मो हि यत्नैः पुरुषेण साध्यः
    भुजङ्गजिह्वचपला नृपुश्रियः ।
    हतेषु देहेषु गुणा धरन्ते ॥

- कर्णभार

One must follow dharma even when it is difficult to do so. The wealth and kingdom are as fickle as the tongue of a snake. Hence a wise king will rule fairly and strive to keep the subjects happy. In this way his fame will live even after his body is dead.

- Karnabhara
