Power quotes
Power
The possession of unlimited power will make a despot of almost any man. There is a possible Nero in the gentlest of human creature that walks.

- Thomas Bailey Aldrich
As regards the celebrated struggle for life, it seems to me for the present to have been rather asserted than proved. It does occur, but as the exception; the general aspect of life is not hunger and distress, but rather wealth, luxury, even absurd prodigality -- where there is a struggle it is a struggle for power.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
The Supreme end of education is expert discernment in all things -- the power to tell the good from the bad, the genuine from the counterfeit, and to prefer the good and the genuine to the bad and the counterfeit.

- Johnson, Samuel
And he has said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness. Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me. [2 Corinthians 12:9]

- Bible
Gentle words, quiet words, are after all the most powerful words. They are more convincing, more compelling, more prevailing.

- Gladden, W.
Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.

- Raymond Lindquist
Society cannot exist unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere, and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without.

- Edmund Burke
We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have staked the future of all of our political institutions upon the capacity of mankind of self-government; upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.

- James Madison
Power is not an institution, and not a structure; neither is it a certain strength we are endowed with; it is the name that one attributes to a complex strategical situation in a particular society.

- Foucault, Michel
Fear does not have any special power unless you empower it by submitting to it.

- Les Brown
There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow.

- Marden, Orison Swett
You can make those promises with just as much passion the second time around. Such is the regenerative power of the human heart.

- Marion Wink
Weapons are an important factor in war, but not the decisive factor; it is people, not things, that are decisive. The contest of strength is not only a contest of military and economic power, but also a contest of human power and morale. Military and economic power is necessarily wielded by people.

- Zedong, Mao
Where does virgin wool come from? The sheep that runs the fastest.

- Banks, Harry F.
Plan your progress carefully; hour-by hour, day-by-day, month-by-month. Organized activity and maintained enthusiasm are the wellsprings of your power.

- Meyer, Paul J.
Human reason has this peculiar fate that in one species of its knowledge it is burdened by questions which, as prescribed by the very nature of reason itself, it is not able to ignore, but which, as transcending all its powers, it is also not able to answer.

- Immanuel Kant
Walking uplifts the spirit. Breathe out the poisons of tension, stress, and worry; breathe in the power of God. Send forth little silent prayers of goodwill toward those you meet. Walk with a sense of being a part of a vast universe. Consider the thousands of miles of earth beneath your feet; think of the limitless expanse of space above your head. Walk in awe, wonder, and humility. Walk at all times of day. In the early morning when the world is just waking up. Late at night under the stars. Along a busy city street at noontime.

- Peterson, Wilferd A.
Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.

- Winfrey, Oprah
We have it in our power to begin the world over again.

- Paine, Thomas
There are two ways of attaining an important end, force and perseverance; the silent power of the latter grows irresistible with time.

- Swetchine, Anne Sophie
