Old Tamil Poetry

Translations of Tamil Poetic works that span 2000 years

Thirukkural 978

Ever humble are the great; the lowly

praise themselves pompously.


பணியுமாம் என்றும் பெருமை சிறுமை
அணியுமாம் தன்னை வியந்து.


Great men are always humble. The lowly ones think high of their meagre achievements and praise themselves.
