Break But Do Not Bend
Avvaiyar (1st - 2nd Century CE / Tamil Nadu / India)

Break But Do Not Bend

Would a pillar of granite,
When it is over-burdened
bend or buckle at any point
rather than splinter and fall?
Likewise the noble ones
When their honour is confronted
would lay down their very life
and not submit to the tyrannous.
