Yoga Sutra 4:9
Source: Sanskrit transliteration from The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (Sri Swami Satchidananda)
JATI DESA KALA VYAVAHITANAM APY ANANTARYAM SMRTI SAMSKARAYOR EKARUPATVAT.
Source: English translation from The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (Sri Swami Satchidananda)
Although desires are separated from their fulfillments by class, space and time, they have an uninterrupted relationship because the impressions [of desires] and memories of them are identical.
Source: Sanskrit transliteration from Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (B.K.S. Iyengar)
jati desa kala vyavahitanam api anantaryam smrti samskarayoh ekarupatvat
Source: English translation from Light on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (B.K.S. Iyengar)
Life is a continuous process, even though it is demarcated by race, place and time. Due to the uninterrupted close relationship between memory and subliminal impressions, the fruits of actions remain intact from one life to the next, as if there were no separation between births.

Because of our memory of past tendencies, the chain of cause and effect is not broken by change of species, space or time.
Source: English translation from The Heart of Yoga (T.K.V. Desikachar)
Memory and latent impressions are strongly linked. This link remains even if there is an interval of time, place, or context between similar actions.

jati desha kala vyavahitanam api anantaryam smriti samskarayoh eka rupatvat
Source: English translation of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati)
Since memory (smriti) and the deep habit patterns (samskaras) are the same in appearance, there is an unbroken continuity in the playing out of those traits, even though there might be a gap in location, time, or state of life.
