Verse 4.21.46

वासनाभिरनन्ताभिर्व्योमेव घनराजिभिः ।
संदिग्धायां यथा रज्ज्वां सर्पतत्त्वं तथैव हि ॥ ४६ ॥

vāsanābhiranantābhirvyomeva ghanarājibhiḥ |
saṃdigdhāyāṃ yathā rajjvāṃ sarpatattvaṃ tathaiva hi || 46 ||

The mind that is subject to its endless desires, is like the clear firmament obscured by the clouds; and ranges in the maze of doubt between truth and untruth, as of supposing the rope for the serpent.
