We need only obey. There is guidance for each of us, and by lowly listening we shall hear the right word.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Women never really command until they have given their promise to obey; and they are never in more danger of being made slaves than when the men are at their feet.
      - George Farquhar

Light is a special help to obedience, and obedience is a singular help to increase light.

Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.

No principle is more noble, as there is none more holy, than that of a true obedience.
      - Henry Giles

Filial obedience is the first and greatest requisite of a state; by this we become good subjects to our emperors, capable of behaving with just subordination to our superiors, and grateful dependents on heaven; by this we become fonder of marriage, in order to be capable of exacting obedience from others in our turn; by this we become good magistrates, for early submission is the truest lesson to those who would learn to rule. By this the whole state may be said to resemble one family.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

Be it remembered that we command nature, as it were, by obeying nature's laws; so the woman who would control her husband does so through obedience.
      - Thomas Chandler Haliburton (used pseudonym Sam Slick)

The virtue of Christianity is obedience.
      - Julius Charles Hare

'Tis the same, with common natures,
  Use 'em kindly, they rebel,
    But, be rough as nutmeg graters,
      And the rogues obey you well.
      - Aaron Hill

Tender-handed stroke a nettle,
  And it stings you for your pains;
    Grasp it like a man of mettle,
      And it soft as silk remains.
        'Tis the same with common natures,
          Use 'em kindly, they rebel;
            But, be rough as nutmeg-graters,
              And the rogues obey you well.
      - Aaron Hill,
        Verses written on a Window in a Journey to Scotland

Whoever obeys the gods, to him they particularly listen.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios")

All arts his own, the hungry Greekling counts;
  And bid him mount the skies, the skies he mounts.
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal),
        Third Satire, (translation by Gifford)

All sciences a fasting Monsieur knows;
  And bid him go to hell--to hell he goes.
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal),
        Third Satire,
        paraphrased by Johnson in "London"

No nice extreme a true Italian knows;
  But bid him go to hell, to hell he goes.
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal),
        Third Satire,
        paraphrased by Phillips in letter to the king about witnesses at Queen Caroline trial

I believe that the fewer the laws in a home the better; but there is one law which should be as plainly understood as the shining of the sun is visible at noonday, and that is, implicit and instantaneous obedience from the child to the parent, not only for the peace of the home, but for the highest good of the child.
      - Abbott E. Kittredge

I would rather obey than work miracles.
      - Martin Luther

Obedience is the key to every door.
      - George MacDonald, The Marquis of Lossie
         (ch. LIII)

I find the doing of the will of God, leaves me no time for disputing about His plans.
      - George MacDonald, The Marquis of Lossie
         (ch. LXXII)

Prepare thy soul calmly to obey; such offering will be more acceptable to God than every other sacrifice.
      - Metastasio (pseudonym of Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi Pietro)

Woman's happiness consists in obeying; she objects to a man who yields too much.
      - Jules Michelet

Women are perfectly well aware that the more they seem to obey the more they rule.
      - Jules Michelet

All the good of which humanity is capable is comprised in obedience.
      - John Stuart Mill

Son of Heav'n and Earth,
  Attend! That thou art happy, owe to God;
    That thou continuest such, owe to thyself,
      That is, to thy obedience; therein stand.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. V, l. 519)
