‘Wealth lures wealth as tame elephants the wild ;

wealth cannot be earned by wishful thinking ;

there can be no trade without wealth .

the man who lets the wealth that Fortune showers on him ,

sit idle , finds no happiness in this world,

nor in the next. what is he then?

A confounded fool performing a watchman’s role” says Vardhaman.

The above phrase stresses on how immense wealth can perish when constantly exploited , whereas even moderate wealth can magnify if added constantly. From the collection of the oldest known indian tales, Visnu Sarma’s ‘The Panchatantra’ (200 BC) also known as ‘The Five Treatises’ in english.
