यः पठति लिखति पश्यति 
परिपृच्छति पंडितान् उपाश्रयति।
तस्य दिवाकरकिरणैः नलिनी
दलं इव विस्तारिता बुद्धिः॥

One who reads, 
lives in the company of learned, 

His intellect expands as the lotus petals expands due to the rays of sun.

Thus sayeth an entry in an Internet site.  We may note, with rapt attention, that this wise saying gathers all the attriibutes of well-behaving humanity. The simile of the blossoming lotus and the beaming sunrays is most appropriate.
