Verse 7.96.37

चिच्चेतति यथा वा यत्तत्तथा साशु पश्यति ।
आबालमेषोऽनुभवो न क्वचित्सा च नश्यति ॥ ३७ ॥

ciccetati yathā vā yattattathā sāśu paśyati |
ābālameṣo'nubhavo na kvacitsā ca naśyati || 37 ||

As the intellect thinks in itself, it beholds the same within itself; so it goes on thinking in its habitual mode, and is never destroyed of itself (or) without being ever destroyed in its essence.
