Letter of the Law

Holding to the letter of the law is many times an indication of a desire for leadership. One who assumes to be the enforcer of the law shows an intellectual understanding of the Cause, but that spiritual guidance in them is not yet established.
(‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Star of the West, 24 June, 1915, pp. 43-44).
