अमंत्रमक्षरं नास्ति नास्ति मूलमनौषधम्‌।
अयोग्यः पुरुषो नास्ति योजकस्तत्र दुर्लभः॥
There is no letter which doesn't have charm (curative property).
There is no root which doesn't have medicinal property.
There is no man who is not able. Rare is a person who knows its proper application.

न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित् रमिहविद्यते
English Translation of Sanskrit quotation:
Here (in this world), there is nothing as pure(sublime) as knowledge.

न चोरहार्यं न च राजहार्यं न भ्रातृभ्राज्यं न च भारकारि।
व्यये कृते वर्धत एव नित्यं विद्याधनं सर्वधनप्रधानम्॥
It cannot be stolen by a thief.
It cannot taken away by a King.
It cannot be divided among brothers.
It does not cause load. It always increses when spent.
The wealth of knowledge is the greatest of all wealths.

"Na Twaham Kamye Rajyam, Na Swargam Na Punarbhavam
Kamye Dukh Taaptanam, Praninaam Arti Nashnam"

I don’t desire Lordship over others, neither I aspire for heavenly pleasures nor I pray to be released from bondage of birth and death, My ambition is to become an instrument of relieving the suffererings of those who are groaning under the scourage of one or the other disease.
