|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 77: Lord Kṛṣṇa Slays the Demon Śālva|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.77.19
vṛthā tvaḿ katthase manda
na paśyasy antike 'ntakam
paurusaḿ darśayanti sma
śūrā na bahu-bhāṣiṇaḥ
śrī-bhagavān uvāca — the Supreme Lord said; vṛthā — in vain; tvam — you; katthase — boast; manda — O dull one; na paśyasi — you do not see; antike — near; antakam — death; pauruṣam — their prowess; darśayanti — demonstrate; sma — indeed; śūrāḥ — heroes; na — not; bahu — much; bhāṣiṇaḥ — speaking.
The Supreme Lord said: O dullard, you boast in vain, since you fail to see death standing near you. Real heroes do not talk much but rather show their prowess in action.
