“The goal of human freedom is not in freedom itself, nor it is in man, but in God. By giving man freedom, God has yielded to man a piece of His divine authority, but with the intention that man himself would voluntarily bring it as a sacrifice to God, a most perfect offering.”
-St. Theophan the Recluse

beautiful and truthful quote
I think another saint said, “true freedom is found only in perfect obedience,” or something like that.
