Bigger than a mountain, the sea or the world?

More lofty than a mountain will be the greatness of that man who, without swerving from his proper state controls himself.


If we weigh the excellence of a benefit which is conferred without weighing the return, it is larger than the sea.

Thirukurl 3l.tif


A favour conferred in the time of need, though it be small (in itself) is (in value) much larger than the world.



Thiruvallular, 2 BC
