Pride in victory, or moroseness in defeat, is useless. One should fully depend on the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is responsible for the victory and defeat of all living entities.
The Lord can be known by the mercy of the Lord only, and by no other means.
Srimad Bhagavatam 1.11.39,
All sins are destroyed and all good fortune is created by the Supreme Lord's qualities, activities and appearances and words that describe them animate, beautify, and purify the world. On the other hand, words bereft of His glories are like the decorations on a corpse.
In the fourteenth incarnation, the Lord appeared as Nrsimha and bifurcated the strong body of the atheist Hiranyakasipu with His nails, just as a carpenter pierces cane.
Srimad Bhagavatam 1.3.18
