पञ्चतंत्र - काकोलूकीय - हीनबल

बलीयसा हीनबलो विरोधं
    न भूतिकामो मनसापि वान्छेत् ।
न वध्यतेत्यन्तबलो हि यस्मा-
    द्व्यक्तं प्रणशोस्ति पतंगवृत्तेः ॥

- पञ्चतंत्र, काकोलूकीय

When you are weak, you should not even think of attacking a strong opponent. The strong and mighty will never fail. Destruction is assured to a person who is on the same path as the moth being attracted to flames.

- Panchatantra, Kakolukiya
