ihātivāhayantyete mārgadausthyaṃ ghanāgame |
kathābhiḥ pathikāḥ prāyo vimūḍhā jīvitaṃ yathā || 27 ||

Travellers mitigate the toils of their journey, by mutual conversation on the way; as the ignorant that cannot commune with themselves, communicate their thoughts with others, to beguile the tediousness of their lives.
