- 83. सज्जना
असतोऽपि भवति गुणवान् सद्भ्योऽपि परं भवन्त्यसद्वृत्ता:।
पङ्कादुदेति कमलं क्रिमय: कमलादपि भवन्ति॥
A virtuous person may spring even from a bad source and one of bad conduct even from the virtuous. The (beautiful) lotus springs from (dirty) mud, but worms are seen to spring even from a lotus.
