knowledge is supreme

विद्वत्त्वञ्च नृपत्वञ्च नैव तुल्यं कदाचन।
स्वदेशे पूज्यते राजा विद्वान् सर्वत्र पूज्यते॥
चाणक्यः
vidvattvañca nṛpatvañca naiva tulyaṁ kadācana|
svadeśe pūjyate rājā vidvān sarvatra pūjyate||
cāṇakyaḥ
വിദ്വത്വം ച നൃപത്വം ച നൈവ തുല്യം കദാചന
സ്വദേശേ പൂജ്യതെ രാജാ വിദ്വാന്‍ സര്‍വത്ര  പൂജ്യതെ
ചാണക്യന്‍

wealth of knowledge and the position as a king should never be compared.  The king, at the best, is honoured in his own kingdom, but the scholar is honoured everywhere.
