पञ्चतंत्र - मित्रभेद - योग्य वरः


कुलं च शीलं च सनाथतां च
     विद्यां च वित्तं च वपुर्वयश्च ।
एतान्गुणान्सप्त विचिन्त्य देया
    कन्या बुधैः शेषमचिंतनीयम् ॥


- पञ्चतंत्र, मित्रभेद



kulam cha shIlam cha sanAthatAm cha
    vidyAm cha vittaM cha vapuH vayashcha ।
etAn guNAn sapta vichintya deyA
    kanya budhaiH sheSham achintanIyam ॥


- panchatantra, mitrabheda


Only the following seven attributes of a groom are important - family, character, ownership of property, education, wealth, physique and age. Rest all are immaterial. A wise man will only look at these qualities in a groom before marrying his daughter to him.


- Panchatantra, Miutrabheda
