It isn't right to be obedient only when things go well; it is much harder to be a good, obedient soldier when things go badly and times are hard. Obedience and faith at such time is a virtue.wilhelm keitel
God seeks comrades and claims love , The devil seeks slaves and claims Obedience .rabindranath tagore
Religion, in its purity, is not so much a pursuit as a temper; or rather it is a temper, leading to the pursuit of all that is high and holy. Its foundation is faith; its action, works; its temper, holiness; its aim, Obedience to God in improvement of self, and benevolence to men.jonathan edwards
Nearness to GOD calls for tenderness of conscience, thoughtfulness in service, and implicit Obedience.james hudson taylor
Rebellion to tyrants is Obedience to God.Benjamin Franklin
Flaubert and Nietzsche have emphasized the importance of standing up and walking in the process of thinking. The peripatetics were perhaps motivated by the same awareness. Yet purposeful walking what we call marching is an enemy of thought and is used as a powerful instrument for the suppression of independent thought and the inculcation of unquestioned Obedience.Eric Hoffer
During the era of Assad junior… Damascus-Tehran relations have changed from alliance to blind Obedience... The Iranians have found their way into Syria, which is obvious from the size of Iran 's diplomatic mission in Damascus, numbering hundreds of officials!
God seeks comrades and claims love. The devil seeks slaves and claims Obedience.rabindranath tagore
Obedience, you know, is Good Luck's mother, wedded to Salvation, they say.Aeschylus
Obedience is the mother of success, and success the parent of salvation.Aeschylus
Christianity is really a man's religion: there's not much in it for women except docility, Obedience, who-sweeps- the-room-as-for-thy-cause, downcast eyes and death in childbirth. For the men it's better: all power and money and fine robes, the burning of the hereticsfun, fun, fun!and the Inquisition fulminating from the pulpit.Fay originally Franklin Birkinshaw Weldon
Strengthen the female mind by enlarging it, and there will be an end to blind Obedience; but as blind Obedience is ever sought for by power, tyrants and sensualists are in the right when they endeavour to keep women in the dark, because the former only want slaves, and the latter a play-thing.
What we call "morals" is simply blind Obedience to words of command.Havelock Ellis
To get rid of your doubts, part with your sin. Put away your intemperance, your dishonesty, your unlawful ways of making money, your sensuality, your falsehood, acted or spoken, and see if a holy life be not the best disperser of unwelcome doubts, and new Obedience the most certain guide to fresh assurance.James Hamilton
Live the law of love. We encourage Obedience to the laws of life when we live the laws of love.stephen covey
Men insist that they don't mind women succeeding so long as they retain their "femininity". Yet the qualities that men consider "feminine" timidity, submissiveness, Obedience, silliness, and self-debasement are the very qualities best guaranteed to assure the defeat of even the most gifted aspirant.elizabeth gould davis
If you have nothing of the spirit of prayer, nothing of the love of the brotherhood, nothing of mortifying the spirit of the world, nothing of growth in grace, of cordial, habitual, persevering Obedience to the Divine commands, how can it be that you have been brought nigh by the blood of Christ?gardiner spring
Mr. Browborough, whose life had not been passed in any strict Obedience to the Ten Commandments, and whose religious observances had not hitherto interfered with either the pleasures or the duties of his life, repeated at every meeting which he attended, and almost to every elector whom he canvassed, the great Shibboleth which he had now adopted “The prosperity of England depends on the Church of her people.”Anthony Trollope
The enforcement of a rigid system of discipline in the government of works of great magnitude is indispensable to success. All subordinates should be accountable to and be directed by their immediate superiors only ; as Obedience cannot be enforced where the foreman in immediate charge is interfered with by a superior officer giving orders directly to his subordinates.
To many Muslims the lack of assurance of salvation is not considered a weakness but a reality that can motivate continued Obedience. Great as it may be in the eyes of Islam for any person to make the decision to enter the faith , the entry constitutes no guarantee of personal justification in the eyes of God ...there is nothing the new initiate can do which assure him of salvation. “Islam” denies that a human can attain religious felicity on the basis of faith alone...
The fact is that sin is the most unmanly thing in God's world. You never were made for sin and selfishness. You were made for love and Obedience.
This is the excellent foppery of the world, that, when we are sick in fortune, often the surfeit of our own behaviour, we make guilty of our disasters the sun, the moon, and the stars; as if we were villains by necessity, fools by heavenly compulsion, knaves, thieves, and treachers by spherical predominance, drunkards, liars, and adulterers by an enforced Obedience of planetary influence; and all that we are evil in, by a divine thrusting on: an admirable evasion of whore-master man, to lay his goatish disposition to the charge of a star!
I have liv'd long enough: my way of life Is fallen into the sear, the yellow leaf; And that which should accompany old age, As honour, love, Obedience, troops of friends, I must not look to have; but, in their stead, Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honour, breath, Which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not.
