तिरस्कृता यान्ति नरा महत्त्वम् ।
न जातु मौलौ मणयो वसन्ति ॥
gIrbhiH gurUNAm paruSha akSharAbhiH
tiraskRutA yAnti narA mahattvam ।
alabdha shANotkaShaNA narANAM
na jAtu maulau maNayo vasanti ॥
When one is berated by his teacher with harsh words, he only attains greatness. A gem that has not gone through rough times on the grind stone never gets to be worn on the head by men.
