Verse 7.31.8

निर्णय एष एवात्र यदशेषमभावयन् ।
यथास्थितं यदाचारं पाषाण इव तिष्ठसि ॥ ८ ॥

nirṇaya eṣa evātra yadaśeṣamabhāvayan |
yathāsthitaṃ yadācāraṃ pāṣāṇa iva tiṣṭhasi || 8 ||

The conclusion arrived at last after mature thought in respect to this is, that you must remain as you are and as firm as a rock in the state in which you are placed, and in the conduct appertaining to your own station in life.
