nidhīnaṃ va pavattāraṃ yaṃ passe vajjadassinaṃ
niggayhavādiṃ medhāviṃ tādisaṃ paṇḍitaṃ bhaje
tādisaṃ bhajamānassa seyyo hoti na pāpiyo
Should one find a man who points out faults and who reproves, let him follow such a wise and sagacious person as one would a guide to hidden treasure. It is always better, and never worse, to cultivate such an association.
