पुनःपुनः पर्युषितं कर्म कुर्वन्न लज्जते ।
मूढ्बुद्धिरबुद्धिस्तु कः कुर्यात्किल बालवत् ॥ १८ ॥

punaḥpunaḥ paryuṣitaṃ karma kurvanna lajjate |
mūḍhbuddhirabuddhistu kaḥ kuryātkila bālavat || 18 ||

Is it not shameful for a sensible being, to be employed in the same circuit of business every day, and is it not laughable to be doing and undoing the same thing, like silly boys day by day?
