The liberated soul who merges into the existence of the Lord is no better than the trees. Trees also stand in the Lord's existence, because material energy and the Lord's energy are the same. Similarly, the Brahman effulgence is also the energy of the Supreme Lord. It is the same whether one remains in the Brahman effulgence or in the material energy, because in either there is no spiritual activity.

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 8.257, Purport

For one who constantly meditates upon My presence within all persons, the bad tendencies of rivalry, envy, and abusiveness, along with false ego, are very quickly destroyed.

Lord Sri Krsna
Srimad-Bhagavatam 11.29.15

Who can be worthy of the name of the Supreme Lord but the Personality of Godhead Sri Krsna? Brahmaji collected the water emanating from the nails of His feet in order to award it to Lord Siva as a worshipful welcome. This very water [the Ganges] is purifying the whole universe, including Lord Siva.

Sri Suta Gosvami
Srimad-Bhagavatam 1.18.21

Marriage with a view to peaceful and virtuous life and with a view to procreate servants of the Lord is a good institution for a Vaisnava. Spiritual cultivation is the main object of life. Do everything that helps it and abstain from everything that thwarts the cultivation of the spirit.

Shree Caitanya Mahaprabhu: His Life and Precepts

Logic and arguments are insufficient to understand the Absolute Truth.

Srila Vyasadeva
Brahma-sutra 2.1.11

Birth and other transformations are undergone by the body but never by the self, just as change occurs for the moon's phases but never for the moon, though the new-moon day may be called the moon's "death."

Lord Balarama
Srimad-Bhagavatam 10.54.47

When the Vedic literature describes the Personality of Godhead as being without any qualities (nirguna), this means that the Lord does not possess any material qualities. It does not mean that He has no spiritual qualities.
