महाभारत - शान्ति - गृहारंभः

गृहारंभो हि दुःखाय न सुखाय कदाचन ।
सर्पः परकृतं वेश्म प्रविश्य सुखमेधते ॥

- महाभारत, शान्ति

gRuhArambho hi duHkhAya na sukhAya kadAchana ।
sarpaH parakRutaM veshma pravishya sukhamedhate ॥

- mahAbhArata, shAnti

Starting a home (and family) always leads to pain and suffering. It never leads to (permanent) happiness. Ants that build the anthill are always under tension (due to attachment). A snake that takes over their home spends its time happily.

- Mahabharata, Shanti
