Verse 7.118.26

स्फटिकविमलं पीत्वा तोयं घनोदरनिर्गतं पिबति न पुनर्मार्गे क्षुभ्यंस्तृषापि शिखी जलम् ।
स्फुरति च घनं स्मृत्वा स्मृत्वा न चापि विपद्यते गुणवति जने बद्धाशानां श्रमोऽपि सुखावहः ॥ २६ ॥

sphaṭikavimalaṃ pītvā toyaṃ ghanodaranirgataṃ pibati na punarmārge kṣubhyaṃstṛṣāpi śikhī jalam |
sphurati ca ghanaṃ smṛtvā smṛtvā na cāpi vipadyate guṇavati jane baddhāśānāṃ śramo'pi sukhāvahaḥ || 26 ||

The peacock that was wont to drink the crystal drops of the clouds, would not now stoop to drink the dirty water of the ditch, though pressed and pinched by drought and thirst; because the sweet remembrance of his past beverage, supports him from fainting, and the expectation of fresh draughts, preserves him from dying.
