Verse 3.70.78

सूचिकायुग्मलभ्येन मोहितेनात्मना नृणाम् ।
मृतिमाशङ्कते चित्रा स्वार्थे नोदेति मूढता ॥ ७८ ॥

sūcikāyugmalabhyena mohitenātmanā nṛṇām |
mṛtimāśaṅkate citrā svārthe nodeti mūḍhatā || 78 ||

It was but for a particle of blood, or as much as could be picked out by the point of a pin, that the colic Suchi was bent on the destruction of men: so the wise are fools in their own interests.
