1.16 Chanakya Niti

विषादप्यमृतं ग्राह्यममेध्यादपि काञ्चनम् ।
अमित्रादपि सद्वृत्तं बालादपि सुभाषितम् ॥१.१६॥

viṣādapyamṛtaṃ grāhyamamedhyādapi kāñcanam |
amitrādapi sadvṛttaṃ bālādapi subhāṣitam ||1.16||

even in poison, nectar can be found; in filth, gold; in an enemy, good characteristics; and in a child, words of wisdom

Excerpt from the book “Old Chanakya Strategy: Aphorisms” by Rajen Jani
