सुभाषितानि : Wise sayings in Sanskrit : Subhashitani – 2

1. पुस्तकस्था तु या विद्या परहस्तगतं धनम्।
कार्यकाले समुत्पन्ने न सा विद्या न तद्धनम्।।

Knowledge which is present in books (i.e. that which you are ignorant of) and wealth in the hands of someone else do not serve you when the hour of need arrives.

2. उद्यमेन हि सिध्यन्ति कार्याणि न मनोरथैः।
न हि सुप्तस्य सिंहस्य प्रविशन्ति मुखे मृगाः।।

Work gets accomplished by putting in effort, and certainly not by mere wishful thinking. Deer certainly do not enter a sleeping lion’s mouth.
