2.9 Chanakya Niti

शैले शैले च माणिक्यं मौक्तिकं न गजे गजे ।
साधवो न हि सर्वत्र चन्दनं न वने वने ॥२.९॥

śaile śaile ca māṇikyaṃ mauktikaṃ na gaje gaje |
sādhavo na hi sarvatra candanaṃ na vane vane ||2.9||

a jewel is not found in every mountain, a pearl is not found on the head of every elephant, good people are not found everywhere, sandalwood is not found in every forest
