विद्या गुरुं हि गुणवत्तरमातनोति ।
आदाय शुक्तिषु बलाहकविप्रकीर्णैः
रत्नाकरो भवति वारिभिरंबुराशिः ॥

If the students make good use of the education they got from the teacher, the teacher has to be given credit for it. It only shows his greatness. If a drop of pure water from the clouds falls as rain into the sea, it is up to the sea to see that it reaches an oyster and becomes a pearl. Only because the sea is able to do this, he is also called a gem-maker.
