not a rabbit

विपदि धैर्यं अथाभ्युदये क्षमा सदसि वाक्य-पटुता युधि विक्रमः। यशसि चाभिरुचिर् व्यसनं श्रुतौ प्रकृति-सिद्धम् इदं हि महात्मनाम्॥३२॥
vipadi dhairyaṁ athābhyudaye kṣamā sadasi vākya-paṭutā yudhi vikramaḥ | yaśasi cābhirucir vyasanaṁ śrutau prakṛti-siddham idaṁ hi mahātmanām ||32||

വിപദി ധൈര്യം അഥാഭ്യുദയേ ക്ഷമാ സദസി ച അഭിരുചിര്‍ യുധി വിക്രമം യശസിചാഭിരുചിര്‍ വ്യസനം ശ്രുതവ് പ്രകൃതിസിദ്ധം ഇദം ഹി മഹത്മനാം

  Nonchalance and absolute presence of mind when facing danger, patience and detachment while there is abundance in life, keen interest in participating and enlivening the proceedings of the meetings of august bodies, great valour in fighting great adherence to once own reputation and deep sorrow when subjected to unwanted scanda... these virtues come naturaally to the noble soul. The real mettle of the noble is tested in the crucible of adversity. Anyone can pose that he is very bold when things are okey but to keep the same attitude when unpleasant things face one is a special talent. Even at the face of some silly position being given people arrogate to themselves all greatness and consider it their birthright to show impatience to fellow mortal. But the really great man is not affected by neither plenty or penury. If there is great knowledg inherent and acquired present in a person, he has to give expression to it in appropriate fora for the benefit of the world. The noble warriors show their valour in its sublimest best in battles never giving any thought to personal safety. For such persons impeccable reputation is paramount in life and unwarranted scandals cause them great distress /
