Chapter 48: Understanding Strength

Kural 471

The prudent man acts after weighing the strength a deed demands,
his own strength and the strengths of allies and opposition.

Kural 472

Nothing is impossible for those who perceive the nature and means
of their task and proceed with determination.

Kural 473

Ignorant of their strengths, many plunge zealously
into projects, only to miscarry midway.

Kural 474

How swiftly men who praise themselves perish, unappraised of
their real measure, unable to live in peace with others.

Kural 475

Load too many of them, and even peacock feathers
would break a sturdy cart's axle.

Kural 476

and attempts to climb farther will forfeit his life.

Kural 477

Know the measure of your capacity to give, then give accordingly;
such clarity is the way wealth is preserved.

Kural 478

A small income is no cause for failure,
provided expenditures do not exceed it.

Kural 479

measures well his wealth, it will disappear without a trace.

Kural 480

How swiftly a generous man's riches dwindle and die,
if he does not evaluate the limits of his means.
