namo bhagavate vaasudevaaya,

Dear vaishhNavas,

I came across two interesting quotations:

a.   "atyantabhaktiyuktaanaaM naiva shaatraM na ca kramaH" 

b.   "shrutis smR^tiH mama eva aaGYaa yas taam ullaN^ghya vartate
      aaGYaacchedii mama drohi madbhaktaH api na vaishhNavaH"


Would bhaagavata-s please
  - provide source of the above quotations, and
  - explain their meaning ?


-Ram
