SB 10.49.25
tasmal lokam imam rajan
 svapna-maya-manoratham
viksyayamyatmanatmanam
 samah santo bhava prabho

Translation:
Therefore, O King, looking upon this world as a dream, a magician’s illusion or a flight of fancy, please control your mind with intelligence and become equipoised and peaceful, my lord.



SB 10.49.26
dhrtarastra uvaca
yatha vadati kalyanim
 vacam dana-pate bhavan
tathanaya na trpyami
 martyah prapya yathamrtam

Translation:
Dhrtarastra said: O master of charity, I can never be satiated while hearing your auspicious words. Indeed, I am like a mortal who has obtained the nectar of the gods.

Purport:
In the opinion of Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti, Dhrtarastra was in fact proud and felt he already knew everything Akrura was speaking, but to maintain diplomatic gravity he spoke as a saintly gentleman.
