भवन्ति नम्रास्तरव फलोद्गमैः
नवांबुभिर्भूमिविलंबिनो घनाः
अनुद्धताः सत्पुरुषा समृद्धिभिः
स्वभाव एवैष परोपकारिणाम् ||

-अभिज्ञानशाकुन्तलम् (महाकवि कालिदास)

Trees laden with fruits bend down so people may pluck and enjoy the fruits.
Clouds laden with water come down as rain cooling the earth and watering plants and trees.
In the same way noble men do not become conceited when fortune embraces them but use their wealth to help others.
This is the nature of persons who are always eager to be of help to fellow humans.
