Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 7 - Chapter 1 - Verse 6


ज्ञातय: पितरौ पुत्रा भ्रातर: सुहृदोऽपरे ।यद्वदन्ति यदिच्छन्ति चानुमोदेत निर्मम: ॥ ६ ॥


jñātayaḥ pitarau putrābhrātaraḥ suhṛdo ’pareyad vadanti yad icchanticānumodeta nirmamaḥ


An intelligent man in human society should make his own program of activities very simple. If there are suggestions from his friends, children, parents, brothers or anyone else, he should externally agree, saying, “Yes, that is all right,” but internally he should be determined not to create a cumbersome life in which the purpose of life will not be fulfilled.
