True Liberty

“The only true liberty of which a dependent being like a man is capable, is the free use of his faculties in the service of God. Independence, strictly speaking, belongs only to God. Man, in seeking it, instead of obtaining, lost liberty. Seeking to be supreme lord of himself, refusing to be the servant of the best of Beings, he necessarily became a slave of the worst.”

Ibid, 2nd vol. p. 14
