Arjuna, I will now enumerate the marks of the devotee I most dearly love. I love the one who harbors no ill will toward any living being, who returns love for hatred, who is friendly and compassionate toward all. I love the devotee who is beyond 'I' or 'mine,' unperturbed by pain and not elated by pleasure, who possesses firm faith, is forgiving, ever contended and ever meditating on Me.

The Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 12, Verse 13-14.
