Obedience Quotes


Blind obedience to no man, no cause or no country is the road to true freedom. Yet, there is a lot of truth in what others say about the matter in well known and even obscure obedience quotes. For it was William A. Ward who once remarked, "Every great person has first learned how to obey, whom to obey, and when to obey” and nothing could me more true. For it is the truly great man or woman who can determine when the time is right for obedience and when the time is right to no longer serve anyone else, except perhaps one’s God, whose very presence and supremacy both deserve and demand such obedience.
