A monkey-King outwits a crocodile who tries to eat him, and the crocodile acknowledges his escape with the following verse.

58. Yassete caturo dhammā, Vānarinda, yathā tava:
Saccaṁ dhammo dhiti cāgo, diṭṭhaṁ so ativattati.

He who, monkey-King, has four things:
Truth, wisdom, courage, charity,
Will surely overcome his foes.

from Buddhist Wisdom Verses
