Thirukural - Anbudaimai - Kural 71 - 80


குறள்/Couplet
Link


And is there bar that can even love restrain? The tiny tear shall make the lover's secret plain
71


The loveless to themselves belong alone; The loving men are others' to the very bone
72


Of precious soul with body's flesh and bone, The union yields one fruit, the life of love alone
73


From love fond yearning springs for union sweet of minds; And that the bond of rare excelling friendship binds
74


Sweetness on earth and rarest bliss above, These are the fruits of tranquil life of love
75


The unwise deem love virtue only can sustain, It also helps the man who evil would restrain
76


As sun's fierce ray dries up the boneless things, So loveless beings virtue's power to nothing brings
77


The loveless soul, the very joys of life may know, When flowers, in barren soil, on sapless trees, shall blow
78


Though every outward part complete, the body's fitly framed; What good, when soul within, of love devoid, lies halt and maimed
79


Bodies of loveless men are bony framework clad with skin; Then is the body seat of life, when love resides within
80
