Verse 4.59.7

मालिन्यं दुःखमप्येवं ज्वालाया इव कज्जलम् ।
आगमापायिनोऽनित्या मनःषष्ठेन्द्रियक्रियाः ॥ ७ ॥

mālinyaṃ duḥkhamapyevaṃ jvālāyā iva kajjalam |
āgamāpāyino'nityā manaḥṣaṣṭhendriyakriyāḥ || 7 ||

The end of worldly pleasure is sorrow and misery, as the product of a flame is soot and blackness; and the functions of the mind and senses, are all fleeting having their rise and fall by turns. All enjoyments are short lived, owing to the fugacity of the objects, and the decay of the powers of our enjoying.
