Subhashita - 20.01.2012

पुराणमित्येव न साधु सर्वं न चापि काव्यं नवमित्यवद्यम्।
सन्तः परीक्ष्यान्यतरद्भजन्ते मूढः परप्रत्ययनेयबुद्धिः॥

puraNamityeva na saadhu sarvam na chaapi kaavyam navamityavadyam

santah pareekshyaanyataradbhajante moodhah parapratyayaneyabuddhih
Everything is not good simply because it is old; nor a poem should be condemned simply because it is new; the wise resort to the one or the other after (proper) examination; (only) a fool has his mind led by the judgement of another.
