Verse 5.9.36

अज्ञानैकहतो बाल्ये यौवने मदनाहतः ।
शेषे कलत्रचिन्तार्तः किं करोति कदा जडः ॥ ३६ ॥

ajñānaikahato bālye yauvane madanāhataḥ |
śeṣe kalatracintārtaḥ kiṃ karoti kadā jaḍaḥ || 36 ||

Senseless men are never the better for anything, being devoid of sense in their boyhood, and heated by their passions in youth. In their latter days, they are oppressed with the care of their families, and in the end thy are overcome by sorrow and remorse.
