We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
(William Ewart Gladstone)
Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species man acquired significant power to alter the nature of his world.
Everything in nature contains all the power of nature. Everything is made of one hidden stuff.
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Power can be taken, but not given. The process of the taking is empowerment in itself.
Those who profess to favor freedom and yet depreciate agitation, are people who want crops without ploughing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning; they want the ocean without the roar of its many waters. The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both. But it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand; it never has and it never will.
Live not as though there were a thousand years ahead of you. Fate is at your elbow; make yourself good while life and power are still yours.
(Marcus Aurelius Antonius)
It is simply, and solely, the abundance of money within a state [which] makes the difference in its grandeur and power.
I believe in the Golden Rule ‹ The Man with the Gold... Rules.
Power doesn't have to show off. Power is confident, self-assuring, self-starting and self-stopping, self-warming and self-justifying. When you have it, you know it.
Character is power.
(Booker T. Washington)
Who is all powerful should fear everything.
To know the pains of power, we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures, we must go to those who are seeking it.
(Charles Caleb Colton)
You can't trust anybody with power.
