A collection of Sanskrit Proverbs in Hinduism A small good done to the virtuous bears great results, while even great help extended to the wicked begets only sorrow. Behold – even grass fed to cows turns into milk, whereas if milk is fed to snakes, it becomes deadly poison. A wicked man feels elated when he has hurts others with his unkind words. On the contrary, a good man repents immediately even if he makes an unkind remark out of carelessness. Just as a chameleon changes colors, the low and wicked too put on three different colors. At first, he acts as relative, next as a friend and at the end; he turns out to be a enemy. Even at times of calamity, a noble man should desist from harboring ill-will or enmity towards others.
