śatakatrayam 1.79: chinno’pi rohati taruḥ (a tree that is chopped)

by Jahnabi Barooah

छिन्नोऽपि रोहति तरु: क्षीणोऽप्युपचीयते पुनक्ष्चन्द्र: ।
इति विमृशन्त: सन्त: संतप्यन्ते न विश्लथेषु लोकेषु ।।७९।।
नीतिशतके

a tree that is chopped
grows again,
the crescent moon too
waxes again to full glory.
realizing this, wise men
are not too aggravated even when
life is distressing. ||79||
