Paul Elmer More (1864-1937), A Century of Indian Epigrams, Chiefly from the Sanskrit of Bhartrihari (Boston: Houghton, Mifflin and Company, 1899), p. 56 (no. XXXIV):
    I saw an ass who bore a load
    Of sandal wood along the road,
    And almost with the burden bent,
    Yet never guessed the sandal scent;
    So pedants bear a ponderous mass
Of books they comprehend not,—like the ass.
