Verse 7.96.34

चेतनं वर्जयित्वान्यत्किंचिद्यूयं जना यदि ।
यदुच्यतां महामूढाः स्वात्मा किमपलप्यते ॥ ३४ ॥

cetanaṃ varjayitvānyatkiṃcidyūyaṃ janā yadi |
yaducyatāṃ mahāmūḍhāḥ svātmā kimapalapyate || 34 ||

Should you suppose yourselves, as any other thing beside the intelligence; then tell me, ye fools, why do you talk of the soul in vain, and what do you mean by the same.
