Pleasing the entire world without pleasing God is of no use. Even if the whole world is opposed to you, so long as God is with you, you need not fear. When God is with you, the whole world will follow you. When God is pleased with you, the whole world will be pleased with you. Therefore, let all your efforts be towards pleasing God.
(From : Sai Veda, The Word of God, sayings of Bhagavan Sri Sathya Sai Baba)
