A quotation by Bhaskara


A particle of tuition conveys science to a comprehensive mind: and having reached it, expands of its own impulse. As oil poured on water, as a secret entrusted to the vile, as alms bestowed upon the worthy, however little, so does science infused into a wise mind spread by intrinsic force.
Lilavati
