power

A Quote by Joseph Stalin on ideas, knowledge, power, control, enemies, opponents, and guns

Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.

A Quote by Saint Anthony the Great on god, christianity, enlightenment, hope, humility, pride, death, knowledge, and power

Learn to love humility, for it will cover all your sins.  All sins are repulsive before God, but the most repulsive of all is pride of the heart.  Do not consider yourself learned and wise; otherwise, all your efforts will be destroyed, and your boat will reach the harbor empty.  If you have great authority, do not threaten anyone with death.  Know that, according to nature, you too are susceptible to death, and that every soul sheds its body as its final garment.

Saint Anthony the Great

A Quote by Lucy Parsons on anarchism, state, anarchy, iww, wobblies, power, and government

"Concentrated power can be always wielded in the interest of the few and at the expense of the many. Government in its last analysis is this power reduced to a science. Governments never lead; they follow progress. When the prison, stake or scaffold can no longer silence the voice of the protesting minority, progress moves on a step, but not until then".

A Quote by Abraham-Hicks on alignment, charisma, power, source, and authenticity

Someone who takes the time to understand their relationship with source, who actively seeks alignment with their broader perspective, who deliberately seeks and finds alignment with who-they-really-are, is more charismatic, more attractive, more effective, and more powerful than a group of millions who have not achieved this alignment.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on presence, power, and letting go

In Tibetan, authentic presence is wangthang, which literally means, 'field of power'... The cause or the virtue that brings about authentic presence is emptying out and letting go. You have to be without clinging.

A Quote by Jean Haner on life, purupose, meaning, power, and living

If you're like many of us, you've spent years trying to feel comfortable in your own skin and to figure out what to do with your life. This is your most important purpose: to fully move into the power of your authentic self and to discover how to put that power to work in the world. There's a reason why you are here and a special way to accomplish your role in the world. But so much of us feel a lack of clarity around all this. We feel out of touch with our true nature and aren't sure why.
