Quakerism is not a spirituality of passivity, not a spirituality of options; our testimonies are not a pre-packaged set of values. Our spiritual experience, our openness to being led and to living a guided life, leads us to a life we have little choice over. Testimony is the outflowing life we cannot help but lead.

Ben Pink Dandelion.  Open for Transformation: Being Quaker, 2014 Swarthmore Lecture
