George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

Marquis de Sade
“   My dearest, we must stop seeing one another.
   There they are—cruel words. I put them down without dying. Follow me bravely. My father spoke as the master who demands to be obeyed. A convenient match appears, and that suffices. He didn't ask if I agreed but took into account only his own interests, wholly sacrificing my feelings to his caprices. Don't implicate my mother—she said and did all she could, and imagines doing still more. You know how much she loves me and you must be aware of her tender feelings for you. Our tears flowed together. The barbarian witnessed them but was not moved.”
Marquis de Sade, Aline et Valcour

“You will not stumble in sin, if you obey the words of the Scriptures.”

“None of your steps shall slide , if you put the laws of the Lord in your heart to obey.”
Lailah Gifty Akita


I daily call you out my inner voice.
I get to listen to my echoes but no replies from you.

I daily search you my inner voice.
You are nowhere.

I can't feel your presence in me.

Do you still perdure in me ?

Where are you ?
Are you hidden behind the ebony trees in the forbidden forest ?
Has fire burned you to ashes ?

Your unread words on the paper have been washed away by the spilled water.
The regret of not reading you is burning inside me.

Yes , I always kicked you out of my soul.
But this was never my instinct.
I did this under the stimulus of others.

You are my soul.
Without you , my life is a deserted valley.

Wherever you are , please come back to me.
I promise you that I will always listen to you and obey your orders.”
Spriha Kant

Lailah Gifty Akita

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worst when they despise him,” he wrote. “Fail to honor others and they will fail to honor you. But of a good leader, who talks little, when his
work is done, his aims fulfilled, they will all say, ‘we did this ourselves.’ ”
Sam Walker, The Captain Class: The Hidden Force that Creates the World's Greatest Teams

“The one who obeys can also command”
Bharath Mamidoju

Thomas Mann
“The capacity for self-surrender, he said, for becoming a tool, for the most unconditional and utter self-abnegation, was but the reverse side of that other power to will and to command. Commanding and obeying formed together one single principle, one indissoluble unity; he who knew how to obey knew also how to command, and conversely; the one idea was comprehended in the other, as people and leader were comprehended in one another.”
Thomas Mann, Mario and the Magician

Charles F. Stanley
