Verse 3.60.55

तत्रातियत्नाज्जयति सत्याः संविद आत्मसात् ।
कुर्वन्ति सरिदम्भोधिगामिनी सरितो यथा ॥ ५५ ॥

tatrātiyatnājjayati satyāḥ saṃvida ātmasāt |
kurvanti saridambhodhigāminī sarito yathā || 55 ||

It requires therefore a great force of the mind, to overcome its worldly thoughts, and turn them to the channel of truth; as the greater force of the main current of a river, leads its tributaries to the ocean.
