Gray Hair Wisdom / Meister Eckhart

Of True Obedience

 “True and perfect obedience is a virtue above all virtues. No great work can be accomplished without it, nor can there be any task however small or insignificant, which will not be done to better purpose in obedience, whether it be hearing or reading the Mass, or prayer, or contemplation, or whatever. Take any project you please however trifling; it is improved and exalted by obedience. Obedience brings out the best of everything; it never fails or errs in any matter and no matter what you do it in true obedience it will not miss being good.” Meister Eckhart
