Verse 7.96.14

चिन्मात्रपुरुषो जन्तुर्म्रियते यदि नाम वा ।
ततो मरिष्यत्तत्पुत्रो निःसंदेहं पितुर्मृतौ ॥ १४ ॥

cinmātrapuruṣo janturmriyate yadi nāma vā |
tato mariṣyattatputro niḥsaṃdehaṃ piturmṛtau || 14 ||

The intellect alone is the embodied and living soul, and should it ever be supposed to die; then the son would be thought to die also by the death of the father, because the one is but a reproduction of the other.
