Few Lines of Wisdom – Hitopadesha

The signs of an affectionate master are recognizing from distance, smiling, great respect even in making inquiries, praising one’s virtues even in one’s absence, remembering one amongst favorite things, attachment to one even when he is not in service, giving reward with sweet words, and considering only merits even when there are faults.
Delaying, raising hopes but disappointment in their fulfillment are characteristics of an indifferent master.
If a piece of glass instead of jewel is set in a crown, it is not the fault of the jewel but the lack of knowledge of the setter.
When the enemy is insignificant, and cannot be overcome by superior skill; a guard fit enough to kill him should be made use of.
Without pondering over his income, one who spends it rapidly according to his own resolve will soon be reduced to the state of want even though he was as rich as Kubera.
