Srimad Bhagavatam - 4:8:34
गुणाधिकान् मुदं लिप्सेद् अनुक्रोशं गुणाधमात्
मैत्रीं समानाद् अन्विच्छेन् न तापैर् अभिभूयते
Narada says, "A man should be pleased at the sight of one who is superior in qualities, should have tender feelings towards one who is inferior in accomplishment and seek friendship with one who is on a par with him. By doing so a man in never overwhelmed with afflictions."
पदं त्रि-भुवनोत्कृष्टं जिगीषोः साधु वर्त्म मे
Dhruva asks, "Be pleased, Oh Sage to tell me a good path, keen as I am to attain to a place which is highest in all the three worlds."
जनन्याभिहितः पन्थाः स वै निःश्रेयसस्य ते
भगवान् वासुदेवस्तं भज तत्प्रवणात्मना
Narada says, "The course pointed out by your mother is the one leading to your highest good. Lord Vasudeva represents that course; Chant His Divine names with a mind exclusively devoted to Him."
