Verse 5.19.36

प्रपञ्चोऽयं महाभाग दृश्यते जागते भ्रमे ।
परमार्थेन ते प्राज्ञ नास्ति मित्रं न बान्धवाः ॥ ३६ ॥

prapañco'yaṃ mahābhāga dṛśyate jāgate bhrame |
paramārthena te prājña nāsti mitraṃ na bāndhavāḥ || 36 ||

It is all but a delusion, O my fortunate boy, that is presented before us in this illusive world; while in truth, O my sensible child, we have nobody, whom we may call to be our real friends or positive enemies in this world.
