Verse 4.29.7

यद्वद्दूरगतं वस्तु नादर्शे प्रतिबिम्बति ।
पदार्थवासना तद्वदनभ्यासान्न जायते ॥ ७ ॥

yadvaddūragataṃ vastu nādarśe pratibimbati |
padārthavāsanā tadvadanabhyāsānna jāyate || 7 ||

But as distant objects are never reflected in the glass, so the desire for any thing, is never successful without intense application to it.
