Verse 5.66.26

भोगभोगिश्रितेष्वन्तर्दुःखदर्दुरधारिषु ।
मनोमोहान्धकूपेषु पूरेषु विनिमज्जति ॥ २६ ॥

bhogabhogiśriteṣvantarduḥkhadarduradhāriṣu |
manomohāndhakūpeṣu pūreṣu vinimajjati || 26 ||

As the serpent of desire lies dormant in the heart, (for want of overtaking its prey in old age); it is content like the croaking frog, to hold its complaints in the mouth; and the mind like a monster, hides itself in the pool of dark despondence.
