Everything that glitters is not gold

शैले शैले न माणिक्यं
मौक्तिकं न गजे गजे |
साधवो न हि सर्वत्र
चन्दनं न वने वने ||

Rubies are not found on each and every mountain.
Every elephant does not have pearl nor every forest contains sandalwood.
Similarly, There are no gentlemen everywhere.

Shaile shaile n maanikyam
Mauktikam n gaje gaje |
Saadhvo n hi srvtra
Chandanam n vane vane ||

Noting Hill
