Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.
Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.bruce lee
Odin, thou whirlwind, what a threat is this Thou threatenest what transcends thy might, even thine, For of all powers the mightiest far art thou, Lord over men on earth, and Gods in Heaven; Yet even from thee thyself hath been withheld One thing to undo what thou thyself hast ruled.Matthew Arnold
The awful shadow of some unseen Power Floats, tho' unseen, amongst us.Percy Bysshe Shelley
I thought that my invincible power would hold the world captive, leaving me in a freedom undisturbed. Thus night and day I worked at the chain with huge fires and cruel hard strokes. When at last the work was done and the links were complete and unbreakable, I found that it held me in its grip.rabindranath tagore
Power is given only to him who dares to stoop and take it... one must have the courage to dare.fyodor dostoevsky
You must build your House of Parliament on the river: so... that the populace cannot exact their demands by sitting down round you.1st duke of wellington
I am not interested in power for power's sake, but I'm interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.Martin Luther King Jr.
What is called music today is all too often only a disguise for the monologue of power. However, and this is the supreme irony of it all, never before have musicians tried so hard to communicate with their audience, and never before has that communication been so deceiving. Music now seems hardly more than a somewhat clumsy excuse for the self-glorification of musicians and the growth of a new industrial sector.Jacques Attali
Some Blockett-type employees actually believe that they have received a genuine promotion; others recognize the truth. But the main function of a pseudo-promotion is to deceive people outside the hierarchy. When this is achieved, the maneuver is counted a success.Laurence J. Peter
All power corrupts, absolute power is even more fun.
So mightiest powers by deepest calms are fed, And sleep, how oft, in things that gentlest be!
For what can power give more than food and drink, To live at ease, and not be bound to think?john dryden
There is no power on earth that can undo Pakistan.muhammad ali jinnah
You must never underestimate the power of the eyebrow.Jack Black
Power tends to corrupt , and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men, even when they exercise influence and not authority : still more when you superadd the tendency or the certainty of corruption by authority. There is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder of it.
Power always sincerely, conscientiously, de très bon foi, believes itself right. Power always thinks it has a great soul and vast views, beyond the comprehension of the weak.
If you want to discover just what there is in a man — give him power.
Let us ask...how things work at the level of on-going subjugation, at the level of those continuous and uninterrupted processes which subject our bodies, govern our gestures, dictate our behaviors, etc....we should try to discover how it is that subjects are gradually, progressively, really and materially constituted through a multiplicity of organisms, forces, energies, materials, desires, thoughts, etc. We should try to grasp subjection in its material instance as a constitution of subjects.
The problem with power is that people pay attention to it, and it's very easy to get beside yourself and use it in the wrong way.
