Words of Wisdom from Vidur Neeti

A conscientious and intelligent person engages in ventures which are within his personal capacity physically and mentally. Neither does he aspire for ventures which are beyond his capacity nor does he consider any as of low order or beneath his dignity.
The person who does not go around advertising his talent and achievement is to be classed as learned. He is considered to be learned if anger, pride and too much of joy does not affect his talent. The truly learned does not open his lips about another’s affair without being specifically asked about it. Who never loses himself in utter joy on the praise and affection bestowed upon him by others, does not get immersed in sorrow due to undue defamation by others; remains unmoved by either praise or defamation by other is to be taken as learned.
