पञ्चतंत्र - आपत्सु वैराणि


क्षते प्रहारा निपतंत्यभीक्ष्णं
    धनक्षये दीप्यति जठराग्निः ।
आपत्सु वैराणि समुल्लसंति
    छिद्रेष्वनर्था बहुलीभवंति ॥


- पञ्चतंत्र



kShate prahArA nipatanti abhIkShNam
    dhanakShaye dIpyati jaTharAgniH ।
aapatsu vairANi samullAsanti
    ChidreShu anarthA bahulI bhavanti ॥


- panchatantra


A wound gets hurt again and again before healing. You feel more hungry when he has no money. All your enemies rejoice (and perhaps unite) when you are in trouble. When your life is being torn apart, you commit more blunders.
