Avvaiyar Sayings

However virtuous one may be, the low always speak of one’s faults; even as in a fruitful garden, full of flowers and haunted by the bees, the crow seeks only the margossa fruit.
Youth is a bubble on water; abundant riches are the long rolling waves of the ocean, and the body lasts no longer than letters traced on water. Why then, my friends, do you not worship the Lord?
The gem that adorns an assembly is a man of learning.
The very noble are as the lofty palmyra tree in giving. They take very little and give much. Avvaiyar
