आशा यावदशेषेण न लूनाश्चित्तसंभवाः ।
वीरुधो दात्रकेणेव तावन्नः कुशलं कुतः ॥ ११ ॥

āśā yāvadaśeṣeṇa na lūnāścittasaṃbhavāḥ |
vīrudho dātrakeṇeva tāvannaḥ kuśalaṃ kutaḥ || 11 ||

How can we have our quiet, as long as our desires and hopes and fears continue to infest in our minds; and until we can weed them out, like thorns and brambles of bushes, with the spade of our reason.
