Tirukkural 409: The Unlearned

The unlearned, though born in a high caste, are not equal in dignity to the learned; though they may have been born in a low caste.

This physical world, though necessary to our evolution, is the embodiment of impermanence, of constant change. Thus, we take care not to become overly attached to it.
