Verse 7.116.79

मौनस्पन्दविहारवर्णवपुषां साम्येऽपि काकव्रजेऽकाकः कोकिल एष कान्तिरुचिरो दूरात्परिज्ञायते ।
मध्ये मूर्खजनस्य पण्डित इव स्वाकारभव्यक्रियः सर्वो हि प्रथिमानमेति सदृशस्वान्तश्चमत्कारतः ॥ ७९ ॥

maunaspandavihāravarṇavapuṣāṃ sāmye'pi kākavraje'kākaḥ kokila eṣa kāntiruciro dūrātparijñāyate |
madhye mūrkhajanasya paṇḍita iva svākārabhavyakriyaḥ sarvo hi prathimānameti sadṛśasvāntaścamatkārataḥ || 79 ||

The cuckoo sitting silent in an assemblage of crows, appears as one of them in its form and colour of its feathers; and the graceful gait of the cuckoo, makes it known from the rest, as the wise man is marked in the company of fools. It is hence that every body is respected by his inward talents and outward deportment, more than by outer form and feathers.
