I had to obey, he was standing there staring at me with piercing eyes. I signed as I picked up the letter on the side board, the cold thin materical welter in my hands.
“read it” he commanded. I obeyed and died that very night, of a broken heart. He was never seen again, and I turned cold in the ground.

an often misunderstood word. simply abused, even. its definition has been raped tirelessly by so-called righteous fuckers who are really just a bunch of sexists…. to obey isn’t to give in to bullshit.

I have spent so many years of my life inside that cast-iron box. Obey your parents. Look right, then left, when crossing a street. Read those instructions when you are taking the test, because that guy in room 405 is a real jerk, and half the time you don’t even have to do all the algebra problems. Follow the route in the playbook, and the QB will hit you in that split second window between glory and shame. Somewhere along the way, we are supposed to understand why these rules are so important. We are supposed to squeeze out the essence of a functioning society, see how all this is really just for our benefit. Then when we are released as 20-somethings, let out from our childhood box and no longer told what to do, we are supposed to be invincible. But really, we are shapeless, lost in the world, because we never learned how to be without restraint.

To love and obey, what horrible terms. You should want to please each other through gifts of caring when you love someone, and then it won’t seem like such a chore.

To love and obey until death do we part…………. He thought as he looked over her body as she lie sleeping. His hesitation disturbed him.

It makes me think about being a good person or doing something your told to do. I think obey is a word that should be used more often. No body uses obey anymore they use be good

I will not obey the rules of the universe, for the universe is full of cracks, and black holes – consuming the essence of the galaxy. I will not obey the symstem of the stars, for the stars will confuse me with their spectacular death. I will not obey the rules of gravity, for they will hold me down to the crust of the earth, and I am all but obeying.

It hasn’t been as hard as I thought it would be to get my new puppy to obey me. Though the shelter said he came in as a stray, I think he was loved a lot by someone because he has been very easy to train.
I wonder if it was a dog they had to surrender because they couldn’t afford him any longer. That’s sad since he’s such a sweetie, but I guess good news for me since he’s now MY sweet pup.

“It is what is done best by the masses. We walk in their shadows dreaming of the wonderful poisons they administer. When we wake up we suddenly wonder why life is miserable and incongruent.” Nila shift in a seat of discomfort as she recalls the memories of watching her mother drink herself to death every day and the trauma is created in her life.
The General continued, “It is sad but true that to be human is to obey, and to obey is war.”
“But to disobey is fear, and fear is the beginning of true freedom.” Nila added with the pride of a young disciple showing in her eyes.

When Tae Kyung was little, all he could think about was being patient. Obedient. Being as quiet as possible, not making a sound, or else his mother would hurt him – or worse, ignore him all together. And no matter what, he hated that the most. So the least that he could do was obey her. To listen to her. To keep out of her way, so at least she would spare one moment – one second – to look at him. That was the only reason why. That would always be the only reason why he put up with her commands for so long.

To obey is to follow direction but what if it makes you unhappy? What if the direction you need to obey makes you so miserable? Do you still do it? I have no desire to do what will make me unhappy, for my goal is to be the happiest I ever can be.

There was little she could do when the force of his words slammed into her ears, his shouts ascended to screaming in endless crashing waves of accusations.

To learn and obey. Because youhad to obey. There were rules. There were always rules. Rules kept people safe. They helped people to grow. They defined the limits for everyone. If there were limits, you knew where you stood. If you knew where you stood, there was little risk of insulting others. You were safe. And safety was all in a place like this. Because if you weren’t safe, then terrible things could happen. Terrible, terrible things.
