The Path to Salvation (Hitopadesha 6)

This elegant shlok from Hitopadesha summarizes the gist of happiness.
विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद् याति पात्रताम्।
पात्रत्वाद् धनमाप्नोति धनाद्धर्मं ततः सुखम्॥
English Translation: 
Knowledge makes one humble, humility begets worthiness,
worthiness creates wealth and enrichment,
enrichment leads to right conduct, right conduct brings contentment.
Hindi Translation: 
विद्या विनय देती है, विनय से पात्रता, पात्रता से धन,
धन से धर्म, और धर्म से सुख प्राप्त होता है.
