Periyaarai pizhayamai-90th chapter  of  Thirukural-

1.AAththuvaar  aaththal ikazhamai  poththvaar ,
Poththalul yellam thalai.

1.Not finding  fault  with great ones  who can  do a job,
It greatest  good quality of a  person.

He would have  to bear unending   sorrow  because  of them.

3.Kedal vendin  kelaathu   cheika adal  vendin,
AAththupavar kan  izhukku.

3.If one wants to get destroyed , let him do  jobs without  consulting great people,
And suppose  one wants to get killed, let him create problem for   strong people.

4.Koothathathai kayyal vilithaththal  , aathuvaarkku,
AAththaathaar  inna  cheyal.

Keep  their life safe  anywhere else  from that  king.

Those who harm great people   do not have any hope.

7.Vagai manda vaazhkkayum  vaanporulum   yennam,
THakai maanda   thakkar cherin.

7.If   great learned people   get angry against  a person,
What is the  use of having great wealth   and great life.

8.Kundraanar  kundra mathippin  kudiyodu,
Nindarnnar  maivar  nilathu.
