अविचार्यैव सूचित्वं तया मूढधियाऽऽस्थितम् ।
नानर्थबुद्धेः स्फुरति पूर्वापरविचारणा ॥ १८ ॥

avicāryaiva sūcitvaṃ tayā mūḍhadhiyā''sthitam |
nānarthabuddheḥ sphurati pūrvāparavicāraṇā || 18 ||

It was her silliness, that led her to make the injudicious choice of needleship for herself; and so it is with the short witted, that they lack the sense of judging beforehand, about their future good.
