Where did the name "Religious Society of Friends" come from?

To his disciples, he (Jesus) said, "I no longer call you my servants, because a servant does not know his master's business.  Instead, I call you friends, for everything that I learned from my father I have made known to you."     John 15:15

We (Quakers) have no truth to bring to others like a product to be sold.  We are called to show that truth has us, and by example, demonstrate to everyone that they too can be found by God within.    ~ Robert Griswold, 2000

Prayer is not an old woman's idle amusement.  Properly understood and aplied, it is the most potent instrument of action.    ~Gandhi

Inner freedom is not guided by our effort; it comes from seeing what is true.   ~ Buddha

The way of love is not a subtle argument.
The door there is devastation.
Birds make great sky circles for their freedom.
How do they learn it?
They fall, and falling,
they're given wings.

~Rumi
