Natur

Naturens røst er mektig. Selv om hunden kåres til konge, tygger den likevel på en gammel sko.

Gjengitt i Hitopadesa : a new literal translation from the Sanskrit text of prof. F. Johnson for the use of students (1880).

Engelsk:

Whatever the natural disposition of anyone may be, that is hard to be overcome by him. If a dog were made a king, would he not gnaw a shoe?

Variant:
Whatever be the nature of a person, it is always very difficult to change. If a dog is appointed as King, even then he will not stop biting shoes.
