सुभाषितरत्नभाण्डागार - जानीयात् भृत्यान्

जानीयात्संगरे भृत्यान् बांधवान् व्यसनागमे ।
आपत्कालेषु मित्राणि भार्यां च विभवक्षये ॥

- सुभाषितरत्नभाण्डागार

jAnIyAt sangare bhRutyAn bAndhavAn vyasanAgame ।
aapatkAleShu mitrANi bhAryA cha vibhavakShaye ॥

One knows the true character of a servant during war, of relatives when you get sick, of friends when you are in trouble and of your wife when you have lost all money (and fortune).
