पञ्चतंत्र - मित्रभेद - गोप्यता


दारेषु किंचित्स्वजनेषु किंचि-
    द्गोप्यं वयस्येषु सुतेषु किंचित् ।
युक्तं न वा युक्तमिदं विचिंत्य
    वदेद्विपश्चिन्महतोऽनुरोधात् ॥


- पञ्चतंत्र, मित्रभेद



dAreShu kinchit svajaneShu kinchit
    gopyam vayasyeShu suteShu kinchit ।
yuktaM na vA yuktam idam vicintya
    vaded vipashchin mahato anurodhAt ॥


- panchatantra, mitrabheda


One must hide a little secrets from wife, relatives, friends or children. Not everyone need to be told everything. A wise man must think 'to tell or not to tell' a lot according to the task at hand.


- Panchatantra, Mitrabheda
