Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural – 1090

Wine pleases only those who drink,
not those who behold, as love does.

உண்டார்கண் அல்லது, அடுநறா, காமம்போல்
கண்டார் மகிழ் செய்தல் இன்று.

Wine gives pleasure only to those who drink it. But love gives pleasure just by the sight of a lover.
