 I am afraid this quote is not relevant here!! OTOH, it says whatever 
you do, do with brahma bhAva..It is not an outright rejection of 'karma' 
itself.  For kAmya karma some rituals have been recommended in veda-s. 
putra kAmeshti, sAngrahaNyeshti, jyOtishtOma are some of the examples. 
Most of the brAhmaNa maNtra-s suggests various rituals for the various 
kAmya karma. Having said this I should also add that these karma should 
ultimately lead us to karma-yOga, nishkAma karma, through which chitta 
shuddhi and then the aspirant would become eligible to persue jnAna mArga. 
na karmaNAmanAraMbhAnaishkarmyaM purushOshnute..says geetAchArya in 

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
So,one has to remain in karma and suffer!That quote in BG has been oftrepeated 
without knowing to whom it is meant!
