Verse 5.70.4

नित्यमात्मदृशा लीनो ज्ञः स्वस्थश्चञ्चलोऽपि सन् ।
क्षुब्धो दृश्यत एवासौ प्रतिबिम्बार्कवन्मुधा ॥ ४ ॥

nityamātmadṛśā līno jñaḥ svasthaścañcalo'pi san |
kṣubdho dṛśyata evāsau pratibimbārkavanmudhā || 4 ||

The wise man, though he may be moving about in busy affairs, is yet ever quiet in the abstraction of his soul from them. He may be assailed by outward sorrow, yet his inward soul shines as an image of the sun.
