śatakatryam 1.3: a little knowledge is dangerous

by Jahnabi Barooah

अज्ञ: सुखमाराध्य: सुखतरमाराध्यते विशेषज्ञ: ।
ज्ञानलवदुर्विदग्धं ब्रह्मापि नरं न रञ्जयति ।।३।।
नीतिशतके

it is easy to charm a fool,
even easier a knowledgeable person;
but a silly person with a pea-sized brain–
even god almighty cannot delight him! ||3||
