Power Quotes


When used wisely but not prodigiously, power can move mountains. With true power, force is unnecessary and even imprudent. While power can be abused, it can also be harnessed to accomplish great things that would not have otherwise been possible. It is an extremely fine line, one that power quotes try to keep in balance, showing those who seek power that it can just as easily corrupt as it can be used for progress and good. From sages and pundits to rock stars and the man on the street, many have chimed in on the topic of power, sharing their marvel at its abilities and their fear of its misuse.
