"The self is given to us that we may sacrifice it: it is ours, that we, like Christ, may have somewhat to offer—not that we should torment it; but that we should deny it; not that we should cross it, but that we should abandon it utterly: then it can no more be vexed....It is to be no longer the regent of our action. We are no more to think, 'What should I like to do?' but 'What would the Living One have me do?'"- George MacDonald
