कार्यार्थी भजते लोकः

कार्यार्थी भजते लोकः यावत्‌ कार्यं न सिध्यति॥
उत्तीर्णे च परे पारे नौकायाः किं प्रयोजनम्॥
kāryārthī bhajate lokaḥ yāvat kāryaṁ na sidhyati||
uttīrṇe ca pare pāre naukāyāḥ kiṁ prayojanam||
The world (men of the world), intending to get its work done, prays (to you) only until the task is not accomplished. Once you have crossed over to the other bank, what is the use of the boat ?
