Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1009

Strangers will seize the wealth of the insular,
who neither savor nor share.

அன்பு ஒரீஇ, தற் செற்று, அறம் நோக்காது, ஈட்டிய
ஒண் பொருள் கொள்வார், பிறர்.

The wealth earned by one who insulates oneself from relatives, and who neither relishes it nor shares it, is bound to be seized by others.
