1. Pothi Padh Padh Kar Jag Mua, Pandit Bhayo Na Koye Dhai Aakhar Prem Ke, Jo Padhe so Pandit Hoye.

3. Kabeera khada bazaar mein, maange sabki khair. Na kahoo se doshti, na kahoo se bair.

5. Padhi padhi jo pather bhaya , likhi likhi bhaya ju chor.
Jis padhne Sahib mile , so padhna katchhu aur.

6. Mann ke haare haar hai, mann ke jeete jeet. Kahey kabeer hari paiye, mann hi ki parteet.

10. Jaisa bhojan khaiye, taisa hi mann hoye. Jaisa paani pijiye, taisi baani soye.
