|Canto 11: General History||Chapter 7: Lord Kṛṣṇa Instructs Uddhava|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.7.73
evaḿ kuṭumby aśāntātmā
puṣṇan kuṭumbaḿ kṛpaṇaḥ
evam — thus; kuṭumbī — a family man; aśānta — unpeaceful; ātmā — his soul; dvandva — in material dualities (like male and female); ārāmaḥ — taking his pleasure; patatri-vat — like this bird; puṣṇan — maintaining; kuṭumbam — his family; kṛpaṇaḥ — the miser; sa-anubandhaḥ — with his relatives; avasīdati — must suffer greatly.
In this way, one who is too attached to family life becomes disturbed at heart. Like the pigeon, he tries to find pleasure in mundane sex attraction. Busily engaged in maintaining his own family, the miserly person is fated to suffer greatly, along with all his family members.
