The Bhagavad-gita (13.14) asserts that the Lord has His hands, legs, eyes, and mouths in every nook and corner of His creation. This means that the expansions of differentiated parts and parcels, called jivas or living entities, are assisting hands of the Lord, and all of them are meant for rendering a particular pattern of service to the Lord. – His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.2.1, Purport

Anything done as sacrifice, charity, or penance without faith in the Supreme, O son of Pritha, is impermanent. It is called asat and is useless both in this life and the next. – Lord Sri Krishna Bhagavad-gita 17.28 

O Krishna and Balarama, we aspire to attain that place where You enjoy transcendental pastimes, and where there are beautiful surabhi cows with large horns. The Vedas describe that place as the transcendental abode of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who fulfills all desires. – Rig Veda Quoted by Jiva Goswami in his commentary on Brahma-samhita 5.5

The senses are symbolic representations of the demigods, and their natural inclination is to work under the direction of the Vedic injunctions. As the senses are representatives of the demigods, so the mind is the representative of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The mind’s natural duty is to serve. When that service spirit is engaged in devotional service to the Personality of Godhead, without any motive, that is far better even than salvation. – Lord Kapila Srimad-Bhagavatam 3.25.32

The illusory material nature attracts the minute living entity to embrace her, and as a result he assumes forms composed of her qualities. Subsequently, he loses all his spiritual qualities and must undergo repeated deaths . … – The Personified Vedas Srimad-Bhagavatam 10.87.38

My dear Lord, O master of the universe, since I have directly seen You, my transcendental bliss has taken the shape of a great ocean. Being situated in that ocean, I now realize all other so-called happiness to be like the water contained in the hoof-print of a calf. – Prahlada Maharaja Hari-bhakti-sudhodaya 14.36

Lord Krishna is so exalted that He is more attractive than anything else and more pleasing than anything else. He is the most sublime abode of bliss. By His own strength, He causes one to forget all other ecstasies. – Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Madhya-lila 24.38
