Dietrich Bonhoeffer: My Rights

The followers of Jesus for his sake renounce every personal right. He calls them blessed because they are meek. If after giving up everything else for his sake they still wanted to cling to their own rights, they would then have ceased to follow him.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship, (SCM Press: London, 2001), p. 90, (originally published in 1937 by Chr. Kaiser Verlag of Munich).
