शतेषु जायते शूरः सहस्रेषु च पण्डितः ।
वक्ता दशसहस्रेषु दाता भवति वा न वा ॥
One out of hundred men will be brave. One out of a thousand men would be a scholar. One out of ten thousand men will be a good orator. It is not yest sure if there is a person who can be called a real donor (selfless).
- Manu Smriti
