नाक्षरं मंत्ररहीतं नमूलंनौषधिम् |
अयोग्य पुरुषं नास्ति योजकस्तत्रदुर्लभ: ||

There is no letter in any alphabet which is bereft of sacred significance. Each and everyone of the roots (say, the vegetable kingdom) has some medicinal properties or the other. The same is true of us. Verily so. The least useful amongst us may be of some use in some circumstance or the other. This said, it is rare to encounter the truly great ones who know their intrinsic worth and put that to optimum use for the society.

Literally translated, this Subhashitham says: 

“There is no letter which is not a mantra (which cant be used in mantra), there is no root, which can't form some medicine, there is no person who is absolutely useless. But persons who can identify their utility and put them in proper usage are rare.”.
