Verse 1.5.15

कोपं विषादकलनां विततं च हर्षं नाल्पेन कारणवशेन वहन्ति सन्तः ।
सर्गेण संहृतिजवेन विना जगत्यां भूतानि भूप न महान्ति विकारवन्ति ॥ १५ ॥

kopaṃ viṣādakalanāṃ vitataṃ ca harṣaṃ nālpena kāraṇavaśena vahanti santaḥ |
sargeṇa saṃhṛtijavena vinā jagatyāṃ bhūtāni bhūpa na mahānti vikāravanti || 15 ||

"Wise men Oh king! never entertain the fluctuations of anger or grief, or a lengthened delight from frivolous causes, just as the great elements of the world do not change their states (of inertness) unless it were for the sake of (some new) production."
