In the Hare Krsna movement, the chanting of the Hare Krsna maha-mantra, the dancing in ecstasy, and the eating of the remnants of food offered to the Lord are very, very important. One may be illiterate or incapable of understanding the philosophy, but if he partakes of these three items, he will certainly be liberated without delay.

Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 15.237, Purport
Every day hundreds and millions of living entities go to the kingdom of death. Still, those who remain aspire for a permanent situation. What could be more wonderful than this?
Mahabharata, Vana-parva 313.116
The sun, full of infinite effulgence, who is the king of all planets and the image of the good soul, is the eye of this world. I adore the primeval Lord Govinda [Krsna], in pursuance of whose order the sun performs his journey, mounting the wheel of time.
Sri Brahma-samhita 5.52
I am the goal, the sustainer, the master, the abode, the refuge, and the most dear friend. I am the creation and the annihilation, the basis of everything, the resting place, and the eternal seed.
Lord Sri Krsna
What assurance of real happiness is there in all of one's wealth, youthfulness, sons, and family members? This life is tottering like a drop of water on a lotus petal. Therefore, you should always serve and worship the divine feet of Lord Hari.
Srila Govinda Dasa Kaviraja
Bhajahu Re Mana, Verse 3
The holy name, character, pastimes, and activities of Krsna are all transcendentally sweet like sugar candy. Although the tongue of one afflicted by the jaundice of avidya [ignorance] cannot taste anything sweet, it is wonderful that simply by carefully chanting these sweet names every day, a natural relish awakens within his tongue, and his disease is gradually destroyed at the root.
Srila Rupa Gosvami
Sri Upadesamrta, Mantra 7
Let me therefore offer my respectful obeisances unto the Lord, who has become the son of Vasudeva, the pleasure of Devaki, the boy of Nanda and the other cowherd men of Vrndavana, and the enlivener of the cows and senses.
You should understand this essential fact: Life is temporary and filled with various kinds of miseries. Therefore, carefully take shelter of the holy name and remain always engaged in His service as your eternal occupation.
Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
Arunodaya-kirtana, Verse 6
The living being caught in the cycle of birth and death does not know how he can be delivered from the material body, which brings him so much trouble. But You, the Supreme Lord, descend to this world in various personal forms, and by performing Your pastimes You illumine the soul's path with the blazing torch of Your fame. Therefore I surrender unto You.
Sri Narada Muni to Lord Krsna
