Be fooled not by the seemingly educated

  • दुर्जनः परिहर्तव्यो विद्यालङ्कृतोऽपि सन्। ।
    मणिना भूषितः सर्पः किमसौ न भयङ्करः॥
  • durjanaḥ parihartavyo vidyālaṅkṛto’pi san|
    maṇinā bhūṣitaḥ sarpaḥ kimasau na bhayaṅkaraḥ||
  • The vile must be given up, even if seemingly ornamented with education. After all, the serpent that is ornamented with precious stones upon its hood is no less alarming.
  • – Nītiśatakam, 53
