A Quote by Susan Brownell Anthony on snowball, power, and world

The older I get, the greater power I seem to have to help the world; I am like a snowball -- the further I am rolled the more I gain.

A Quote by Suzanne Eder on power, energy, form, and formlessness

Power is the force that maintains and expresses our natural state of wholeness.  It is our ever-present "energy signature," a force field that holds and attracts, a vibration that calls forth our particular form from formlessness.  And this force that moves us toward wholeness and full self-expression is already within us, an essential aspect of our constitution.

A Quote by Mr. on people, judgment, value, value judgment, shadings, words, connotations, individuals, groups, power, adjectives, and mr prophet


Words in general and adjectives in particular have power. It is a power that comes in degrees or shadings. People and even societies can make value judgments on others just by the shadings of the words they use. Weird, strange, different and unique are really just different shadings of the same word but evoke completely connotations when applied to individuals or groups of people.

A Quote by C.S. Lewis on left, right, news, politics, and power

"Don't you understand anything?  Isn't it absolutely essential to keep a fierce Left and a fierce Right, both on their toes and each terrified of the other?  That's how we get things done.  Any opposition to the N.I.C.E. is represented as a Left racket in the Right papers and a Right racket in the Left papers.  If it's properly done, you get each side outbidding the other in support of us--to refute the enemy slanders.  Of course we're non-political.  The real power always is." -Miss Hardcastle.

A Quote by Christian Michel on democracy, violence, law, government, coercion, power, liberty, and freedom

Democratic law does not say, "Thou shalt not kill". Instead, it designates certain people who have the right to kill -- soldiers and State police. Democratic law does not order, "Thou shalt not steal". It says that only certain people have the right to steal -- tax and customs agents. What does "power to the people" mean when the people enjoy fewer rights than their supposed servants?

A Quote by Avram Noam Chomsky on change and power

People are dangerous.  If they're able to involve themselves in issues that matter, they may change the distribution of power, to the detriment of those who are rich and privileged.
