Dhammapada 53 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

4 - Pupphavagga, Flowers
8 - Visakha Vatthu
Yathapi puppharasimha,
kayira malagune bahu;

evam jatena maccena,
kattabbam kusalam bahum.

53: As from a collection of flowers many a garland can be made by an expert florist, so also, much good can be done (with wealth, out of faith and generosity) by one subject to birth and death.
