इदं कृत्वेदमप्यन्यत्कर्तव्यमिति कल्पनाम् ।
कदान्तर्विहसिष्यामि पदविश्रान्तया धिया ॥ २० ॥

idaṃ kṛtvedamapyanyatkartavyamiti kalpanām |
kadāntarvihasiṣyāmi padaviśrāntayā dhiyā || 20 ||

When will the placid and unstirred composure of my mind, smile in secret within myself, to reflect on the wishes of mankind, that they will do this thing after they have done the other, which leads them interminably in the circuit of their misery.
