Verse 4.54.21

संकल्पनादृते नेह किंचिदेवास्ति कुत्रचित् ।
तमेव हृदयाच्छिन्धि किमेतत्परिशोचसि ॥ २१ ॥

saṃkalpanādṛte neha kiṃcidevāsti kutracit |
tameva hṛdayācchindhi kimetatpariśocasi || 21 ||

There is no other business of our lives than to desire and to be doing, and when done to be desiring again: and as this restless craving is rooted out of the mind, it sets it free from all anxiety.
