“Consequently, a good way of measuring a man’s true view of authority is therefore to examine how well he defers to and submits to others. It is not wise to entrust a man with authority who does not know himself how to submit to authority. Any man in leadership who demands submission or obedience should be prepared for the request, ‘Show us how.’ “

~ Douglas Wilson, pg. 129, For Kirk and Covenant: The Stalwart Courage of John Knox (Leaders in Action Series)
