entire sanctification

I am in  a converstion with a Quaker and she claims that they believe in entire sanctification, how do we Orthodox view that?

I guess it depends on what she means by that. Do the quakers mean that in roughly the same way that John Wesley did?
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
