Society is well governed when the people obey the magistrates, and the magistrates obey the law.
      - Solon

The man the state has put in place must have obedient hearing to his least command when it is right, and even when it's not.
      - Sophocles

One so small
  Who knowing nothing knows but to obey.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        Idylls of the King--Guinevere (l. 183)

"His kingdom come!" For this we pray in vain,
  Unless He does in our affections reign.
    How fond it were to wish for such a King,
      And no obedience to his sceptre bring,
        Whose yoke is easy, and His burthen light;
          His service freedom, and His judgments right.
      - Edmund Waller

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 endeavor to keep women in the dark because, the former only want slaves, and the latter a play-thing.
      - Mary Wollstonecraft,
        A Vindication of the Rights of Women
         (ch. 2)
