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

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
No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we require him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor.theodore roosevelt
See we not plainly that Obedience of creatures unto the law of nature is the stay of the whole world?Richard Hooker
Cleverly assorted scraps of spurious science are inculcated upon the children to prove necessity of law; Obedience to the law is made a religion; moral goodness and the law of the masters are fused into one and the same divinity. The historical hero of the schoolroom is the man who obeys the law, and defends it against rebels.peter kropotkin
The great moral lesson which Saul's history leaves for the instruction of mankind is this: That without true piety the finest qualities of character and the highest position in society will utterly fail to make a true and noble man. If Saul's heart had been true to God, he would have been one of the grandest specimens of humanity; but, lacking this true Obedience to God, he made his life an utter failure, and his character amoral wreck.william mackergo taylor
What [Nietzsche] calls slave morality is to him purely spite-morality; and this spite-morality gave new names to all ideals. Thus impotence, which offers no reprisal, became goodness; craven baseness became humility; submission to him who was feared became Obedience; inability to assert one’s self became reluctance to assert one’s self, became forgiveness, love of one’s enemies. Misery became a distinction.georg brandes
In Obedience to the feeling of reality, we shall insist that, in the analysis of propositions, nothing "unreal" is to be admitted. But, after all, if there is nothing unreal, how, it may be asked, could we admit anything unreal? The reply is that, in dealing with propositions, we are dealing in the first instance with symbols, and if we attribute significance to groups of symbols which have no significance, we shall fall into the error of admitting unrealities, in the only sense in which this is possible, namely, as objects described.bertrand russell

Whatever in Christ had the nature of satisfaction, was by virtue of His suffering or humiliation; whatever had the nature of merit, was by virtue of His Obedience or righteousness.
What God is he, writes laws of peace, & clothes him in a tempest What pitying Angel lusts for tears, and fans himself with sighs What crawling villain preaches abstinence & wraps himself In fat of lambs? no more I follow, no more Obedience pay!
Those who keep the masses of men in subjection by exercising force and cruelty deprive them at once of two vital foods, liberty and Obedience; for it is no longer within the power of such masses to accord their inner consent to the authority to which they are subjected. Those who encourage a state of things in which the hope of gain is the principal motive take away from men their Obedience, for consent which is its essence is not something which can be sold.
