किं वाससेत्यत्र विचारणीयम्
वासः प्रधानं खलु योग्यतायै ।
पीताम्बरं वीक्ष्य ददौ स्वकन्याम्
दिगम्बरं वीक्ष्य विषं समुद्रः ॥

"What's in a dress?" This argument is debatable. Apparel is indeed an important quality that adds to one's merit. The ocean gave his daughter (Lakshmi) to the one dressed in golden yellow outfit (Vishnu), and gave deadly poison (Halaahala) to the one in the nude. (Shiva).

पुराणमित्येव न साधु सर्वम्
न चापि काव्यं नवमित्यवद्यम् ।
सन्तः परीक्ष्यान्यतरद्भजन्ते
मूढः परप्रत्ययनेयबुद्धिः ॥


Not all literature that is old, is good. Similarly, not all modern literature should be condemned simply because it is new. Wise men choose the good ones only after proper examination. Only an idiot goes by others' judgment.
