Verse 1.14.13

भारोऽविवेकिनः शास्त्रं भारो ज्ञानं च रागिणः ।
अशान्तस्य मनो भारो भारोऽनात्मविदो वपुः ॥ १३ ॥

bhāro'vivekinaḥ śāstraṃ bhāro jñānaṃ ca rāgiṇaḥ |
aśāntasya mano bhāro bhāro'nātmavido vapuḥ || 13 ||

Knowledge is an encumbrance to the unthinking, and wisdom is cumbersome to the passionate; intellect—is a heavy load to the restless, and the body is a ponderous burden to one ignorant of his soul.
