Man must seek to gain the acceptance of God and not that of the different classes of men. If one is praised and chosen by God, the accusation of all the creatures will cause no loss to him; and if the man is not accepted in the threshold of God, the praise and admiration of all men will be of no use to him.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Tablets of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá v1, p. 158)
We are loath to mention such things, neither have We had, nor do We have now, any desire to complain against Our accuser.
(Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, p. 34)
