नातन्त्री विद्यते वीणा नाचक्रो विद्यते रथः। नापततः सुखमेधेत या स्यादवप शतात्मजा ॥

Naatantree vidyate veenaa naachakro vidyate rathah Naapatih sukhamedheta yaa syaadapi shataatmajaa

A Veena cannot exist without its strings. A chariot cannot exist without its wheels. Without her husband a woman can never live happily even though she has a hundred sons. [Context: Sita’s response to Kausalya’s advice asking her to respect and obey Rama in spite of his being deprived of the kingdom. ]
