Hitopadesha (Devanagari: हितोपदेशः Hitopadeśa) is a collection of Sanskrit fables in prose and verse.


  • मनस्वी म्रियते कामं कार्पण्यं न तु गच्छति ।
    अपि निर्वाणमायाति नानलो याति शीतताम् ॥
    • The high-spirited man may indeed die, but he will not stoop to meanness.
      Fire, though it may be quenched, will not become cool. [1]
      • Book I
