Verse 1.17.21

अनानन्दकरी शून्या निष्फला व्यर्थमुन्नता ।
अमङ्गलकरी क्रूरा तृष्णा क्षीणेव मञ्जरी ॥ २१ ॥

anānandakarī śūnyā niṣphalā vyarthamunnatā |
amaṅgalakarī krūrā tṛṣṇā kṣīṇeva mañjarī || 21 ||

Avarice is as vain and inane, fruitless and aspiring, unpleasant and perilous, as the dry twig of a tree, which (bears no fruit or flower) but is hurtful with its prickly point.
