Verse 5.24.21

नासाद्यते ह्यनभ्यस्ता कांक्षतापि शठात्मना ।
पुत्र शालिरिवाव्युप्ता तस्मादेनां समाहर ॥ २१ ॥

nāsādyate hyanabhyastā kāṃkṣatāpi śaṭhātmanā |
putra śālirivāvyuptā tasmādenāṃ samāhara || 21 ||

It is as hard to master anything even by the most cunning, without its proper cultivation for some time; as it is impossible to reap the harvest from an unsown and uncultivated field.
