अपि बालाङ्गनासङ्गादपि साधो सुधारसात् ।
राज्यादपि सुखायैव पुत्रस्नेहो महामते ॥ १४ ॥

api bālāṅganāsaṅgādapi sādho sudhārasāt |
rājyādapi sukhāyaiva putrasneho mahāmate || 14 ||

Oh thou high-minded sage! it is one's affection for his son that affords him far greater pleasure than his possession of a kingdom, or his connection with beauteous females, or even his relish for the juice of nectar.
