From the Bible:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,” Jesus said, “for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.…Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.…Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.”

From the Bhagavad Gita, third Chapter:

Even the wise behave in accordance with Nature as it is manifested in them. Of what avail, then, is suppression?
