On humble obedience...

"An old habit is not easily overcome, and people are reluctant to be led beyond their own views.  If you cling more to your own reason or will rather than to humble obedience of Jesus Christ, you will only with difficulty become an enlightened person.  For it is the will of God that we be perfectly subject to Him, rising above our own reason and will by an ardent love."

Imitation of Christ, Book One, Chapter Fourteen
