River of tendencies

शुभाशुभाभ्यां मार्गाभ्यां वहन्ती वासना सरित् ।
पौरुषेणप्रयत्नेन योजनीया शुभे पथि

-- योग-वासिष्ठ

The river of tendencies flow along auspicious and unhealthy ways!
The wise work towards directing them on the auspicious ones!

-- Yoga Vasishta

My own note: The same applies at the social level as well as the individual. Our lives push the society on auspicious and unhealthy paths. The wise see this clearly and clean up their act to the extent feasible!
