QUOTATION: Obedience to the Truth is Freedom

Archbiship Fulton J. SheenOur blessed Lord said that the Truth would make us free. By this he meant that only by obedience to the highest law and authority do we become free. Take an example from the realm of arts. If in a feverish love for the art of self-expression which obeys no law, an artist decides to paint a zebra without stripes, and a leopard without spots, and a triangle with four sides, he will soon discover that he is not free at all to paint zebras, leopards, or triangles. It is only in obedience of law and authority and the inherent nature of things that we ever become free.

-- Archbishop Fulton J Sheen
