Verse 1.13.15

हिमं वैराग्यवल्लीनां विकारोलूकयामिनी ।
राहुदंष्ट्रा विवेकेन्दोः सौजन्याम्भोजचन्द्रिका ॥ १५ ॥

himaṃ vairāgyavallīnāṃ vikārolūkayāminī |
rāhudaṃṣṭrā vivekendoḥ saujanyāmbhojacandrikā || 15 ||

Fortune is (as a killing) frost to the bondsmen of asceticism, and as the night to the owls of libertinism; she is an eclipse to the moonlight of reason, and as moonbeams to the bloom of the lilies of folly.
