There is no power on earth that can undo Pakistan.muhammad ali jinnah
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
WITH GREAT POWER THERE MUST ALSO COME—GREAT RESPONSIBILITY!stan lee
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.

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
You can’t win, Darth. If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.Obi-Wan Kenobi
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.
Speak truth to power.
Power expands through the distribution of secrecy.
Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.carl jung
The function of the law is not to provide justice or to preserve freedom. The function of the law is to keep those who hold power, in power.gerry spence
I greatly doubt whether the men who become pirate chiefs are those who are filled with retrospective terror of their fathers, or whether Napoleon, at Austerlitz, really felt that he was getting even with Madame Mère. I know nothing of the mother of Attila, but I rather suspect that she spoilt the little darling, who subsequently found the world irritating because it sometimes resisted his whims.bertrand russell
