5.14 Chanakya Niti

तृणं ब्रह्मविदः स्वर्गस्तृणं शूरस्य जीवितम् ।
जिताशस्य तृणं नारी निःस्पृहस्य तृणं जगत् ॥५.१४॥

tṛṇaṃ brahmavidaḥ svargastṛṇaṃ śūrasya jīvitam |
jitāśasya tṛṇaṃ nārī niḥspṛhasya tṛṇaṃ jagat ||5.14||

insignificant is heaven to knowers of Brahma, insignificant is life to the brave, insignificant are women to the conqueror of senses, insignificant is the world to the unattached
