आहारनिद्राभयमैथुनानि
समानि चैतानि नृणां पशूनाम् ।
ज्ञानं नराणामधिको विशेषो
ज्ञानेन हीनाः पशुभिः समानाः ॥

āhāranidrābhayamaithunāni
samāni caitāni nṛṇāṃ paśūnām |
jñānaṃ narāṇāmadhiko viśeṣo
jñānena hīnāḥ paśubhiḥ samānāḥ ||

Men have eating, sleeping, fearing and mating in common with the lower animals. That in which men excel the beasts is discretionary knowledge; hence, indiscreet men who are without knowledge should be regarded as beasts.
