Power quotes
Power
Genius is the ability to act rightly without precedent -- the power to do the right thing the first time.

- Hubbard, Elbert
Power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

- Kissinger, Henry
One of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them: It is a well known fact, that those people who most want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it. Anyone who is capable of getting themselves into a position of power should on no account be allowed to do the job. Another problem with governing people is people.

- Douglas Adams
Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

- Lord Acton
There is no power on earth that can neutralize the influence of a high, simple and useful life.

- Washington, Booker T.
Power doesn't corrupt people, people corrupt power.

- Gaddis, William
To receive applause for works which do not demand all our powers hinders our advance towards a perfecting of our spirit. It usually means that thereafter we stand still.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
Politics is the science of getting more power than anyone deserves to have.

- Kirk Brothers
Wisdom is like electricity. There is no permanently wise man, but men capable of wisdom, who, being put into certain company, or other favorable conditions, become wise for a short time, as glasses rubbed acquire electric power for a while.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
When every physical and mental resources is focused, one's power to solve a problem multiplies tremendously.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
Modern Man is the victim of the very instruments he values most. Every gain in power, every mastery of natural forces, every scientific addition to knowledge, has proved potentially dangerous, because it has not been accompanied by equal gains in self-understanding and self-discipline.

- Lewis Mumford
We cannot live by power, and a culture that seeks to live by it becomes brutal and sterile. But we can die without it.

- Lerner, Max
Genius hath electric power which earth can never tame.

- Lydia M. Child
Any person who recognizes this greatest power... the power to choose. Begins to realize that he is the one that is doing the choosing and that friends, although they mean well, cannot do his choosing for him, nor can his relatives. Consequently, he develops real self-confidence based upon his own ability, upon his own action, and upon his own initiative.

- Kohe, J. Martin
We can never establish with certainty what part of our relations with others is the result of our emotions -- love, antipathy, charity, or malice -- and what part is predetermined by the constant power play among individuals.

- Kundera, Milan
Any individual can be, in time, what he earnestly desires to be, if he but set his face steadfastly in the direction of that one thing and bring all his powers to bear upon its attainment.

- Randall, J. Herman
The world is ruled only by consideration of advantages.

- Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
Authority founded on injustice is never of long duration.

- Seneca
Will minus intellect constitutes vulgarity.

- Schopenhauer, Arthur
The principle of liberty and equality, if coupled with mere selfishness, will make men only devils, each trying to be independent that he may fight only for his own interest. And here is the need of religion and its power, to bring in the principle of benevolence and love to men.

- John Randolph
