Obedience
 
I shall in all my best obey you, madam.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act I. Scene 2. (To his Mother.)
  1
I needs must yield to your goddess’ commands,
Indignant though I be—for so ’tis best;
Who hears the gods, of them his prayers are heard.
        Homer.—The Iliad, Book I. Line 256. (Lord Derby.)
  2
My vow’d obedience, what it can, shall bear,
But oh! my heart’s a woman, and I fear.
        Rowe.—Lucan’s Pharsalia, Book V. Line 1122. (Cornelia to Pompey.)
