Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 3 Text 5

na hi kascit ksanam api
jatu tisthaty akarma-krt
karyate hy avasah karma
sarvah prakrti-jair gunaih

na--nor; hi--certainly; kascit--anyone; ksanam--a moment; api--also; jatu--at any time; tisthati--remains; akarma-krt--without doing something; karyate--is forced to do; hi--certainly; avasah--helplessly; karma--work; sarvah--all; prakrti-jaih--born of the modes of material nature; gunaih--by the qualities.


Everyone is forced to act helplessly according to the qualities he has acquired from the modes of material nature; therefore no one can refrain from doing something, not even for a moment.
