“A yogī is greater than the ascetic, greater than the empiricist and greater than the fruitive worker. Therefore, O Arjuna, in all circumstances, be a yogī.”
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda, Bhagavad-gita As It Is

“The attraction between male and female is the basic principle of material existence. On the basis of this misconception which ties together the hearts of the male and female, one becomes attached to the body, home, property, children, relatives and wealth. In this way, one increases life’s illusions and thinks in terms of “I and mine.” (Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 5.5.8).”
Jayapataka Swami, Vaishnava Ke? What Kind of Devotee are you?

“a name, like javax.swing (a package that holds some of the Swing GUI classes you’ll learn about soon). ArrayList is in the package called java.util, which surprise surprise, holds a pile of utility classes. You’ll learn a lot more about packages in Chapter 17, including how to put your own classes into your own packages. For now though, we’re just looking to use”
