Verse 7.96.42

यद्यद्यथा जगति चेतति चेतनात्मा तत्तत्तथानुभवतीत्यनुभूतिसिद्धम् ।
दृष्टं विषामृतदृशेव पदार्थजातं नातोस्ति संविदविधेयमितिप्रसिद्धम् ॥ ४२ ॥

yadyadyathā jagati cetati cetanātmā tattattathānubhavatītyanubhūtisiddham |
dṛṣṭaṃ viṣāmṛtadṛśeva padārthajātaṃ nātosti saṃvidavidheyamitiprasiddham || 42 ||

Whatever the intelligent soul thinks in itself in this world, it retains the ideas of the same in the mind. Every thing is judged by one's consciousness of it, as the same thing is thought as poison by one, what is believed to be nectar by another.
