प्रारभ्यते न खलु विघ्नभयेन नीचैः
प्रारभ्य विघ्नविहता विरमन्ति मध्याः।
विघ्नैः पुनः पुनरपि प्रतिहन्यमानाः
प्रारब्धमुत्तमगुणा न परित्यजन्ति ॥

There are three categories of people who contemplate an undertaking.  At the lowest level are those who never start off for fear of encountering obstacles.Those at the middle level start the project but, at the first sign of obstacles, withdraw themselves from the goal. At the top level are those who, in spite of repeated obstacles, persist in their work until they take the undertaking to a successful conclusion.

Magical Tree 7 – Wish for wealth of knowledge

न चोरहार्यं न च राजहार्यं न भ्रातृभाज्यं न च भारकारि।
व्यये कृते वर्धत एव नित्यं विद्याधनं सर्वधनप्रधानम् ॥

Not stolen by thieves, not seized by kings, not divided amongst brothers, not heavy to carry. The more you spend, the more it flourishes always – The wealth of knowledge is the most important among all kinds of wealth.
