Power is the great aphrodisiac.
Henry A. Kissinger
My relationship to power and authority is that I'm all for it. People need somebody to watch over them. Ninety-five percent of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave.
Arbitrary power is like most other things which are very hard, very liable to be broken.
Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.
But to me nothing - the negative, the empty - is exceedingly powerful.
