|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 50: Kṛṣṇa Establishes the City of Dvārakā|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.50.19
na vai śūrā vikatthante
darśayanty eva pauruṣam
na gṛhṇīmo vaco rājann
śrī-bhagavān uvāca — the Supreme Lord said; na — do not; vai — indeed; śūrāḥ — heroes; vikatthante — boast vainly; darśayanti — they show; eva — simply; pauruṣam — their prowess; na gṛhṇīmaḥ — We do not accept; vacaḥ — the words; rājan — O King; āturasya — of one who is mentally agitated; mumūrṣataḥ — who is about to die.
The Supreme Lord said: Real heroes do not simply boast but rather show their prowess in action. We cannot take seriously the words of one who is full of anxiety and who wants to die.
