Science has brought us power and ideas but not the wisdom or responsibility to handle them.
— Peter J. Carroll
Martin Luther King Jr.
The actual quote. Be careful, an invalid version has been circulating today.
“Money or Power?”
In this world money begets power behind the wheels of society. It perpetuates the turning of a lot of gears. Power corrupts, especially in positions of authority. It takes a strong character to not abuse such.
Nothing compares to personal power. Dignity is within oneself, no one can take it away from you. It is only when we learn to master our emotions and vices that we truly begin creating the world we desire.
“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
— Jimi Hendrix
Philip K. Dick (via commondense)
All the more reason to be vigilant in your choice of them.
With power comes responsibility. Don’t manipulate, liberate.
