". . . Because the material nature is dependent upon You [Krishna], the living entities can only attempt to act. But without Your sanction and will they cannot perform anything or achieve the results they desire."

Today's Smart Quote is from Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Chapter Chapter Eighty-five, "Spiritual Instruction for Vasudeva, and the Return of the Six Dead Sons of Devaki by Lord Krishna":

“The vital force—the life principle in everything—and the creative force derived from it are not acting independently but are dependent upon You, the Supreme Person behind these forces. Without Your will, they cannot work. Material energy has no cognizance. It cannot act independently, without being agitated by You. Because the material nature is dependent upon You, the living entities can only attempt to act. But without Your sanction and will they cannot perform anything or achieve the results they desire . . .
