Verse 7.170.3

पितृवद्विहिताश्वासं दारा इव नियन्त्रणम् ।
संकटेषु दुरन्तेषु नित्यमव्यभिचारि च ॥ ३ ॥

pitṛvadvihitāśvāsaṃ dārā iva niyantraṇam |
saṃkaṭeṣu duranteṣu nityamavyabhicāri ca || 3 ||

Our inborn good conduct is as infallibly and friendly to us, as the natural beneficence of our parents; and our extraneous good behaviour, is as overruling upon us, as the controul and restraints by a faithful wife in the intricate maze of life.
