These devotees are compared to swans, ducks and bees. The river's flowing produces a melodious sound that gladdens their ears.” (Krishnadas Kaviraja Gosvami, Chaitanya Charitamrita, Adi 2.2)

But the mission is the same-to lead people to God consciousness and obedience to the principles of religion.” (Shrila Prabhupada, Bhagavad-gita, 4.7 Purport)
