Thirst ⧸ Verse 347

Those who are slaves to passions, run down with the stream (of desires), as a spider runs down the web which he has made himself; when they have cut this, at last, wise people leave the world free from cares, leaving all affection behind.
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
