like father like son

ज्येष्ठो भ्राता पिता चैव यश्च विद्यां प्रयच्छति।
त्रयस्ते पितरो ज्ञेया धर्मे पथि हि वर्तिनः॥
यवीयानत्मनः पुत्रः शिष्यश्चापि गुणोदितः।
पुत्रवत्ते त्रयश्चिन्त्या धर्मश्चेदत्र कारणं॥
वात्मीकिरामायणम् किष्किन्धाकाण्डं  १८    १३--१४
jyeṣṭho bhrātā pitā caiva yaśca vidyāṁ prayacchati|
trayaste pitaro jñeyā dharme pathi hi vartinaḥ||
yavīyānatmanaḥ putraḥ śiṣyaścāpi guṇoditaḥ|
putravatte trayaścintyā dharmaścedatra kāraṇaṁ||
vātmīkirāmāyaṇam kiṣkindhākāṇḍaṁ  18    13--14

Our elder brother and the great preceptor  who imparts knowledge to us are to be given respect  equal to our own father,  yes, all of them are our fathers.
Likewise, the younger brother and the virtuous disciple  are to be treated by us with equal affection as is due to our own sons,  yes all of them are our own sons.

let all my relatives abandon me, let the great people insult me, still I am in supreme bliss since my life  is GOVINDA alone.
