Words of Wisdom – Vishnu Purana

Those who do not know this entire world as consciousness in reality see it as material and drift in the ocean of delusion. (Vishnu Purana, 1.4.40)
A person who knows the creation and dissolution of the universe, the coming and going of beings, and their knowledge and ignorance is called Bhagavan. (Vishnu Purana 6.5.78)
Desire is never satiated by enjoyment as fire, fed with oil, becomes the more intense.
When man does not cherish any sinful feeling towards creatures and looks on all with an equal eye – he then finds everything full of pleasure and delight.
The earth is upheld by the truthfulness of those who have controlled their passions, and who, always following pious observances, are not sullied by desire, covetousness and anger.
Vishnu Purana
