अभिज्ञान शाकुन्तला - सूर्य चन्द्र

यात्येकतोऽस्तशिखरं पतिरोषधीनां
    आविष्कृतोऽरुणपुरःसर एकतोऽर्कः ।
तेजोद्वयस्य युगपद्व्यसनोदयाभ्यां
    लोको नियम्यत इवात्मदशान्तरेषु ॥

- अभिज्ञान शाकुन्तला

On one side the moon is sinking. On the other side Sun is rising with his tender early morning rays. Both sun and moon give light (that they are meant to) at their own times and set when their time is up. This must teach us people something about dealing with our own inner turmoils.
