Verse 6.85.132

जीवः क्षुभ्यति दृष्टेन संविदांग सुखादिना ।
आमिषेणेव मार्जारो मौर्ख्यमेवात्र कारणम् ॥ १३२ ॥

jīvaḥ kṣubhyati dṛṣṭena saṃvidāṃga sukhādinā |
āmiṣeṇeva mārjāro maurkhyamevātra kāraṇam || 132 ||

The soul equally exults at the sight of pleasure, as it grieves at the knowledge of its unsteadiness; as a foolish cat rejoices to see of fish, which it has not the power to catch or hold fast in its clutches.
