Oh no! Just see my condition now! I must be the most sinful rogue of all! Alas, alas, what have I done, what have I done? The human form of life is very rare, but I have passed such a priceless life engaged simply as a slave in the service of the material energy. – Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Sri Kalyana Kalpataru 2.1.1
The servants of Lord Caitanya may not have much wealth, may not gather many followers, and may not have the academic qualification of being expert in argument and counterargument, but ordinary people have no qualification to understand why they are indifferent to such matters. The devotees consider the service of Sri Caitanya superior to wealth, followers, and knowledge. Therefore it is impossible for ordinary people to estimate their dignity, glories, and greatness. – Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, Commentary on Sri Caitanya-bhagavata, Madhya-khanda 9.233
O people, please hear of this treatment for the disease of birth and death! It is the name of Krishna.

Just drink it! – King Kulasekhara, Mukunda-mala-stotra 15
