Harshness towards individuals who flout the laws and commands of state is for the public good; no greater crime against the public interest is possible than to show leniency to those who violate it.
Nor turned I ween Adam from his fair spouse, nor Eve the rites Mysterious of connubial love refused: Whatever hypocrites austerely talk Of purity and place and innocence, Defaming as impure what God declares Pure, and commands to some, leaves free to all.john milton
The people die so, that now it seems theyare fain to carry the dead to be buried by daylight, the nights not sufficing to do it in. And my Lord Mayor commands people to be within at 9 at night, all (as they say) that the sick may have liberty to go abroad for ayre.Samuel Pepys
Go, stranger, and tell the Spartans that here we lie, obedient to their commands.Simonides of Ceos
As I do understand it, laws, commands, rules and edicts are for those who have not the light which makes plain the pathway. He who has God's grace in his heart cannot go astray.anne hutchinson
God has always kept on earth a government of his own…In Eden the government was direct, individual and personal. God spoke directly to man and gave specific commands to be obeyed.david lipscomb
There are, certainly, differing degrees of devotion among Moon's followers; the fact that they bow at the right moment or shout "Mansei!" in unison doesn't mean they believe everything Moon says, or do precisely what he commands. Even on important issues, like Moon's claiming to be the messiah, there are church members whom I met, including a close aide to Moon, who demur. A religious leader whom they respect and whose theology they believe, yes; the messiah, perhaps not.sun myung moon
Who doesn't feel commands. He who only thinks what is required in order to win, wins.fernando pessoa
I have in my head a whole army of people pleading to be let out and awaiting my commands.Anton Chekhov
The fact that both Jews and Christians ignore some of God’s or Jesus’s commands, but scrupulously obey others, is absolute proof that people pick and choose their morality not on the basis of its divine source, but because it comports with some innate morality that they derived from other sources.jerry coyne
Much there is I can stand, and most things not easy to suffer I bear with quiet resolve, just as a god commands it. Only a few I find as repugnant as snakes and poison These four: tobacco smoke, bedbugs, garlic, and †.
For those who have only to obey, law is what the sovereign commands. For the sovereign, in the throes of deciding what he ought to command, this view of law is singularly empty of light and leading. In the dispersed sovereignty of modern states, and especially in times of rapid social change, law must look to the future as well as to history and precedent, and to what is possible and right as well as to what is actual.william ernest hocking
What is the damnation of hell? To go with that society who have not obeyed His [the Lord's] commands.smith, joseph, jr.
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
If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free; if our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.Edmund Burke
When the church ceases to reach out to all people, it ceases to be a true church. This is why the Great Commission is a controlling and central command. All these metaphors and commands spring out of one profound reality: the church is a result of and a participant in the mission of God .
He who does not punish evil, commands it to be done.leonardo da vinci
Who rules East Europe commands the heartland , who rules the heartland commands the world.
We are not ourselves When nature, being oppress'd, commands the mind To suffer with the body.william shakespeare
If a law commands me to sin I will break it; if it calls me to suffer , I will let it take its course unresistingly . The doctrine of blind obedience and unqualified submission to any human power, whether civil or ecclesiastical, is the doctrine of despotism, and ought to have no place among Republicans and Christians.
What is the damnation of hell? To go with that society who have not obeyed His [the Lord's] commands.
Libertarianism is not libertinism or hedonism. It is not a claim that "people can do anything they want to, and nobody else can say anything." Rather, libertarianism proposes a society of liberty under law, in which individuals are free to pursue their own lives so long as they respect the equal rights of others. The rule of law means that individuals are governed by generally applicable and spontaneously developed legal rules, not by arbitrary commands; and that those rules should protect the freedom of individuals to pursue happiness in their own ways, not aim at any particular result or outcome.

Where dharma prevails, there will be the rule of law and justice , and the king who follows the path of dharma is known as 'dharma raja'. Even the Machiavellian Arthashastra teaches the ideal king to "establish the rule of Dharma by commands and directives, and discipline among the people by the extension of education ." The most powerful ruler or his minister could not place himself above Dharma his subjects would immediately know his violations and chastise him.
The fear of God is described as the beginning of knowledge (Proverbs (1:7)). Finally, when everything has been heard, fear God and keep His commands for this is the whole of human condition: God judges every deed, even secret ones, to see if it is good or bad.
For the Athenians command the rest of Greece, I command the Athenians; your mother commands me, and you command your mother.
Over the hills, and over the main, To Flanders, Portugal, or Spain; The Queen commands, and we'll obey, Over the hills and far away.George Farquhar
Over the hills and o'er the main, To Flanders, Portugal and Spain, Queen Anne commands and we'll obey, Over the hills and far away.
