[An Abecedary of Cape-Wearing] G is for Great Power

G is for Great Power

“With great power comes great responsibility.”
–Stan Lee (or Voltaire or the Torah)


“Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” — Lord Acton

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” 

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” 

“Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action;rather it is timing. It waits on the right time to act,for the right principles and in the right way.” 

“Recognizing power in another does not diminish your own.” 

“Power changes everything till it is difficult to say who are the heroes and who the villains.” 

“Power does not corrupt. Fear corrupts… perhaps the fear of a loss of power.” 

“Knowledge is power. Power to do evil…or power to do good. Power itself is not evil. So knowledge itself is not evil.” 

That is all.
