Verse 5.82.19

रूपाणि मनसो यूयं जडा एव किलाधमाः ।
जडे तूत्सिक्तता व्यर्थे मृगतृष्णेव वल्गति ॥ १९ ॥

rūpāṇi manaso yūyaṃ jaḍā eva kilādhamāḥ |
jaḍe tūtsiktatā vyarthe mṛgatṛṣṇeva valgati || 19 ||

What are ye O my organs, but passages (to conduct the outer sensations) to the inner mind, and are dull and base of yourselves, and no better than the billows of the sea and the water in the mirage.
