Power quotes
Power
Power is my mistress. I have worked too hard at her conquest to allow anyone to take her away from me.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon
An engaged woman is always more agreeable than a disengaged. She is satisfied with herself. Her cares are over, and she feels that she may exert all her powers of pleasing without suspicion. All is safe with a lady engaged; no harm can be done.

- Austen, Jane
All we actually have is our body and its muscles that allow us to be under our own power.

- Allegra Kent
I feel it now: there's a power in me to grasp and give shape to my world I know that nothing has ever been real without my beholding it. All becoming has need me..

- Rilke, Rainer Maria
Science is great; but she is not the greatest. She is an instrument and not a power--beneficent or deadly, according as she is wielded by the hand of virtue or vice. But her lawful mistress, the only one which can use her aright, the only one under whom she can truly grow and prosper and prove her divine descent, is Virtue, the likeness of Almighty God.

- Roman and Teuton. 1860.
O Krishna, the stillness of divine union which you describe is beyond my comprehension. How can the mind, which is so restless, attain lasting peace? Krishna, the mind is restless, turbulent, powerful, violent; trying to control it is like trying to tame the wind.

- Bhagavad Gita
Will cannot be quenched against its will.

- Dante Alighieri
The basic rule of human nature is that powerful people speak slowly and subservient people quickly --because if they don't speak fast nobody will listen to them.

- Caine, Michael
To achieve the mood of a warrior is not a simple matter. It is a revolution. To regard the lion and the water rats and our fellow men as equals is a magnificent act of a warrior's spirit. It takes power to do that.

- Castaneda, Carlos
The will is deaf and hears no heedful friends.

- Shakespeare, William
All in all, punishment hardens and renders people more insensible; it concentrates; it increases the feeling of estrangement; it strengthens the power of resistance.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
Think with awe on the slow and quiet power of time.

- Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
Art does not imitate life. Art is much more powerful than that. Art brings life back. And it does it by exposing the secrets we all carry inside.

- Jose Raul Bernardo
If power is for sale, sell your mother to buy it. You can always buy her back again.

- Proverb, Arabian
If a rhinoceros were to enter this resteraunt now, there is no denying he would have great power here. But I would be the first to rise and assure him that he had no authority whatever.

- G. K. Chesterton
Ten persons who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon
One remembers horrors, I think, for the rest of one's life, but memories do not always remain so sharp, and with time, and new circumstance, do not affect us so powerfully.

- Elizabeth Aston
Beauty. The power by which a woman charms a lover and terrifies a husband.

- Bierce, Ambrose
Ultimately, the only power to which man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.

- Elie Wiesel
In any society, the artist has a responsibility. His effectiveness is certainly limited and a painter or writer cannot change the world. But they can keep an essential margin of non-conformity alive. Thanks to them the powerful can never affirm that everyone agrees with their acts. That small difference is important.

- Bunuel, Luis
