Verse 7.39.24

आत्मस्थादहमित्यादिरस्मदादेरसंसृतेः ।
शब्दोऽर्थभावमुक्तो यः पटहादिषु जायते ॥ २४ ॥

ātmasthādahamityādirasmadāderasaṃsṛteḥ |
śabdo'rthabhāvamukto yaḥ paṭahādiṣu jāyate || 24 ||

It is by force and power of the spirit, that we mute creatures are enabled to utter the words I, thou &c.; which are mere meaningless sounds, as those emitted by a drum and bear no sense.
