George Fox Quotation

I found this quotation in the Common Prayer: A Liturgy of Ordinary Radicals about George Fox:

George Fox, founder of the Religious Society of Friends, wrote, “People must be led out of captivity to God. Be patterns, be examples that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them. Then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone.”

I like the idea of not just examples but being “patterns”.
