Verse 1.21.20

जन्मपल्वलमत्स्यानां चित्तकर्दमचारिणाम् ।
पुंसां दुर्वासनारज्जुर्नारी बडिशपिण्डिका ॥ २० ॥

janmapalvalamatsyānāṃ cittakardamacāriṇām |
puṃsāṃ durvāsanārajjurnārī baḍiśapiṇḍikā || 20 ||

Human life is as a pool in which the mind moves about in its mud and mire (as a fish). Here it is caught by the bait of woman, and dragged along by the thread of its impure desires.
