34 Power Quotes from Literature

Power is so pleasant that men quickly learn to be greedy in the enjoyment of it, and to flatter themselves that patriotism requires them to be imperious. ~ The Prime Minister by Anthony Trollope Power tends to isolate those who hold too much of it. Eventually, they lose touch with reality... and fall. ~ Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert Power resides where men believe it resides. No more and no less. ~ A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin Crowns do queer things to the heads beneath them. ~ A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin So is man's heart. The desire to perform a work which will endure, which will survive him, is the origin of his superiority over all other living creatures here below. It is this which has established his dominion, and this it is which justifies it, over all the world. ~ The Mysterious Island by Jules Verne Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. ~ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell "He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. Say that his power lies in words and looks; in things so slight and insignificant that it is impossible to add and count 'em up: what then? The happiness he gives, is quite as great as if it cost a fortune." ~ A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens "Real politics are the possession and distribution of power." ~ Endymion by Benjamin Disraeli "All power is a trust; that we are accountable for its exercise; that from the people, and for the people, all springs, and all must exist." ~ Vivian Grey by Benjamin Disraeli "People seem to think that if a man is a Member of Parliament he may do what he pleases." ~ The Belton Estate by Anthony Trollope
