Verse 4.31.22

अक्षीबक्षीवयोरैक्यं क्व किलेहाज्ञतज्ज्ञयोः ।
अन्धप्रकाशयोर्बोधे स्याच्छायातपयोरिव ॥ २२ ॥

akṣībakṣīvayoraikyaṃ kva kilehājñatajjñayoḥ |
andhaprakāśayorbodhe syācchāyātapayoriva || 22 ||

The learned and the ignorant cannot agree on this subject, as the drunken and sober men can not meet together. It is one who has the distinct knowledge of light and darkness, that knows the difference between the shade and sunlight.
