"Happy is the soul which… holds itself ceaselessly in the hands of its Creator, ready to do everything when He wishes; which never stops saying to itself a hundred times a day, 'Lord, what would you have me to do?'"
"Partial obedience, delayed obedience, and surface obedience to impress others are not acceptable unto God. He is looking for men and women who will respond with instant, complete, whole-hearted, and joyous obedience each time He speaks."
-Del Fehsenfeld, Jr.
"…Faith and obedience are one and the same spirit; what in the heart we call faith, in the will we call obedience…the Lord refuse[s] the so-called faith which [finds] its vent at the lips in worshipping words and not at the limbs in obedient action."
-George MacDonald, The Curate's Awakening
"I was not born to be free. I was born to adore and to obey."
-C. S. Lewis
