|If the self is alive, even poverty is kingship:|
The prestige of the penniless is not inferior to that of Sanjar and Tughral.
If the self is alive, the endless ocean is fordable;
To a live self the stones of a mountain are soft like silken cloth.
A live crocodile is free when encircled by water,
While a lifeless crocodile is enchained even by the wave in a mirage.
