Verse 3.120.25

दैवोपतप्तस्य विबान्धवस्य मूढस्य रूढस्य महाधिभूमौ ।
यत्प्राणनं यन्मरणं महापद्यस्यात्मनिर्जीवितमुत्तमं तत् ॥ २५ ॥

daivopataptasya vibāndhavasya mūḍhasya rūḍhasya mahādhibhūmau |
yatprāṇanaṃ yanmaraṇaṃ mahāpadyasyātmanirjīvitamuttamaṃ tat || 25 ||

It is better that one who is unfortunate and friendless, or subject to passion and diseases, should rather die sooner than live in misery. The dead and inanimate beings are far better than the living miserable.
