Power quotes
Power
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
A good indignation brings out all one's powers.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
He that fails in his endeavors after wealth or power will not long retain either honesty or courage.

- Johnson, Samuel
Women are being considered as candidates for Vice President of the United States because it is the worst job in America. It's amazing that men will take it. A job with real power is First Lady. I'd be willing to run for that. As far as the men who are running for President are concerned, they aren't even people I would date.

- Nora Ephron
It is when power is wedded to chronic fear that it becomes formidable.

- Eric Hoffer
Humans are driven by a perpetual and restless desire of power.

- Thomas Hobbes
I noticed an almost universal trait among Super Achievers, and it was what I call Sensory Goal Vision. These people knew what they wanted out of life, and they could sense it multidimensionally before they ever had it. They could not only see it, but also taste it, smell it, and imagine the sounds and emotions associated with it. They pre-lived it before they had it. And the sharp, sensory vision became a powerful driving force in their lives.

- Devore, Stephen
When a man's willing and eager the god's join in.

- Aeschylus
Imagination, where it is truly creative, is a faculty, not a quality; its seat is in the higher reason, and it is efficient only as the servant of the will. Imagination—as too often understood, is mere fantasy—the image-making power, common to all who have the gift of dreams.

- James Russell Lowell
By time and council do the best we can: The event is never in the power of man.

- Herrich
Anybody can become angry - that is easy; but to be angry with the right person, and to the right degree, and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy.

- Aristotle
A monarchy is the most expensive of all forms of government, the regal state requiring a costly parade, and he who depends on his own power to rule, must strengthen that power by bribing the active and enterprising whom he cannot intimidate.

- Cooper, James F.
That is your trick, your bit of filthy magic: invisibility, and the anaesthetic power to deaden my attention in your direction.

- Lawrence, D. H.
He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.

- Lao-Tzu
He who wants to persuade should put his trust not in the right argument, but in the right word. The power of sound has always been greater than the power of sense.

- Conrad, Joseph
The trouble in corporate America is that too many people with too much power live in a box (their home), then travel the same road every day to another box (their office).

- Faith Popcorn
There is no history of mankind, there are only many histories of all kinds of aspects of human life. And one of these is the history of political power. This is elevated into the history of the world.

- Karl Popper
Labor is the instituted means for the methodical development of all our powers under the direction and control of the will.

- Holland, Josiah Gilbert
Since I am a man, my heart is three or four times less sensitive, because I have three or four times as much power of reason and experience of the world -- a thing which you women call hard-heartedness. As a man, I can take refuge in having mistresses. The more of them I have, and the greater the scandal, the more I acquire reputation and brilliance in society.

- Stendhal, Henri B.
Self-determination has to mean that the leader is your individual gut, and heart, and mind or we're talking about power, again, and its rather well-known impurities. Who is really going to care whether you live or die and who is going to know the most intimate motivation for your laughter and your tears is the only person to be trusted to speak for you and to decide what you will or will not do.

- Jordan, June
