The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita (dated between the 2nd century BCE and 2nd century CE)

“When the mind
is led by
the roving senses,
then it steals
one’s wisdom
like the wind
steals a ship
on the water.”

  • This quote is from discourse/chapter 2, verse 67 of the Bhagavad Gita (a Hindu scripture included in book 6 of the epic poem, the Mahabharata). The translation used here is by Laurie L. Patton (Penguin Classic, 2014).
