Verse 1.27.36

अद्यापि यातेऽपि च कल्पनाया आकाशवल्लीफलवन्महत्त्वे ।
उदेति नो लोभलवाहतानामुदारवृत्तान्तमयी कथैव ॥ ३६ ॥

adyāpi yāte'pi ca kalpanāyā ākāśavallīphalavanmahattve |
udeti no lobhalavāhatānāmudāravṛttāntamayī kathaiva || 36 ||

Those that are corrupted in their greediness (after worldly enjoyments), will not even in their old age, receive the sermons on their eternal concerns, which they think to be false chimeras as those of a flower or a creeper growing in the sky.
