You will know who is a saint or thief as soon as he talks – Sant Kabirdas

Whoever has good character is the greatest of all. He is the mine of all jewels; the wealth of the three worlds is merged in good character.

Use your own strength, stop placing hope in others. When the river flows through your own backyard, how can you die of thirst?

You will know who is a saint or thief as soon as he talks. The character within comes out by the road of the mouth.
