śrīrāma uvāca |
āyuḥ pallavakoṇāgralambāmbukaṇabhaṅguram |
unmattamiva saṃtyajya yātyakāṇḍe śarīrakam || 1 ||

Human life is as frail as a pendant drop of water trembling on the tip of a leaflet; and as irrepressible as a raving madman, that breaks loose from its bodily imprisonment out of its proper season.
