A single assembly is liable to all the vices, follies, and frailties of an individual; subject to fits of humor, starts of passion, flights of enthusiasm, partialities, or prejudice, and consequently productive of hasty results and absurd judgments. And all these errors ought to be corrected and defects supplied by some controlling power. ~ John Adams
Controlling Power quotes by John Adams
First of all, you have to keep unmasking the world about you for what it is: manipulative, controlling, power-hungry, and, in the long run, destructive. The world tells you many lies about who you are, and you simply have to be realistic enough to remind yourself of this. Every time you feel hurt, offended, or rejected, you have to dare to say to yourself: 'These feelings, strong as they may be, are not telling me the truth about myself. The truth, even though I cannot feel it right now, is that I am the chosen child of God, precious in God's eyes, called the Beloved from all eternity, and held safe in an everlasting belief. ~ Henri J.M. Nouwen
Controlling Power quotes by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Women are controlled by men like a currency of the world. ~ Bryant McGill
Controlling Power quotes by Bryant McGill
If there was a controlling power outside the universe, it could not show itself to us as one of the facts inside the universe -no more than the architect of a house could actually be a wall or staircase or fireplace in that house. The only way in which we could expect it to show itself would be inside us as an influence or a command trying to get us to behave in a certain way. And that's just what we do find inside us. ~ C.S. Lewis
Controlling Power quotes by C.S. Lewis
Love is giving up control. It's surrendering the desire to control the other person. The two - love and controlling power over the other person - are mutually exclusive. If we are serious about loving someone, we have to surrender all the desires within us to manipulate the relationship. ~ Rob Bell
Controlling Power quotes by Rob Bell
Outright destruction of rebellious ships or habitats - pour encouragez les autres - of course remains an option for the controlling power, but all the usual rules of uprising realpolitik still apply, especially that concerning the peculiar dialectic of dissent which - simply stated - dictates that in all but the most dedicatedly repressive hegemonies, if in a sizable population there are one hundred rebels, all of whom are then rounded up and killed, the number of rebels present at the end of the day is not zero, and not even one hundred, but two hundred or three hundred or more; an equation based on human nature which seems often to baffle the military and political mind. ~ Iain Banks
Controlling Power quotes by Iain Banks
Who can doubt that God created us to be happy, and thereto made us to love one another? It is plainly written as Gospel. The heart is sometimes so embittered that nothing but Divine love can sweeten it, so enraged that devotion can only becalm it, and so broken down that it takes all the forces of heavenly hope to raise it. In short, the religion of Jesus Christ is the only sure and controlling power over sin. ~ Francis Marion
Controlling Power quotes by Francis Marion
When the yogi starts to meditate, he must leave behind all sensory thoughts and all longings for possessions by quieting the waves of feeling (chitta), and the mental restlessness that arises therefrom, through the application of techniques that reinstate the controlling power of the untrammeled superconsciousness of the soul. ~ Paramahansa Yogananda
Controlling Power quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
Think of your many years of procrastination; how the gods have repeatedly granted you further periods of grace, of which you have taken no advantage. It is time now to realise the nature of the universe to which you belong, and of that controlling Power whose offspring you are; and to understand that your time has a limit set to it. Use it, then, to advance your enlightenment; or it will be gone, and never in your power again. ~ Marcus Aurelius
Controlling Power quotes by Marcus Aurelius
During any dance to which we surrender with joy, the brain loses it's controlling power, and the heart takes up the reins of the body. ~ Paulo Coelho
Controlling Power quotes by Paulo Coelho
Religion is defined as belief in and worship of a controlling power and atheism is precisely not that. ~ Bill Maher
Controlling Power quotes by Bill Maher
Whosoever, therefore, asks any one to believe blindly, or drags people behind him by the controlling power of his superior will, does an injury to humanity, though he may not intend it. ~ Swami Vivekananda
Controlling Power quotes by Swami Vivekananda
Men are qualified for civil liberty in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their appetites. ~ Edmund Burke
Controlling Power quotes by Edmund Burke
Each atom is trying to fly off from its centre. In the internal world, each thought is trying to go beyond control. Again each particle in the external world is checked by another force, the centripetal, and drawn towards the centre. Similarly in the thought - world the controlling power is checking all these outgoing desires. ~ Swami Vivekananda
Controlling Power quotes by Swami Vivekananda
The day when a sportsman stops thinking above all else of the happiness in his own effort and the intoxication of the power and physical balance he derives from it, the day when he lets considerations of vanity or interest take over, on this day his ideal will die. ~ Pierre De Coubertin
Controlling Power quotes by Pierre De Coubertin
A father has to do everything in his power to keep a tight ship, even though he knows the crew would like to send him away in a dinghy. ~ Bill Cosby
Controlling Power quotes by Bill Cosby
If so, why has a naturally masculine shape (broad shoulders, no waist, narrow hips, flat belly) become the ideal for the female body? Why is it that those aspects of a woman's body that are most closely related to her innate female power, the capacity of her belly, hips, and thighs to carry and sustain life, are diminished in our society's version of a beautiful woman? ~ Anita A. Johnston
Controlling Power quotes by Anita A. Johnston
Might and wrong combined, like iron magnetized, are endowed with irresistible attraction. ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne
Controlling Power quotes by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Always focus on the power of love than the love of power ~ Henry Johnson Jr
Controlling Power quotes by Henry Johnson Jr
The power of music to integrate and cure ... is quite fundamental. It is the profoundest nonchemical medication. ~ Oliver Sacks
Controlling Power quotes by Oliver Sacks
Emotion is the atmosphere in which thought is steeped, that which lends to thought its tone or temperature, that to which thought is often indebted for half its power. ~ Hugh Reginald Haweis
Controlling Power quotes by Hugh Reginald Haweis
Evil is not just a theory of paradox, but an actual entity that exists only for itself. From its ether of manifestation that is garlanded in perpetual darkness, it not only influences and seeks the ruination and destruction of everything that resides in our universe, but rushes to embrace its own oblivion as well.

To accomplish this, however, it must hide within the shroud of lies and deceit it spins to manipulate the weak-minded as well as those who choose to ally themselves with it for their own personal gain. For evil must rely on the self-serving interests of the arrogant, the lustful, the power-hungry, the hateful, and the greedy to feed and proliferate. This then becomes the condition of evil's existence: the baneful ideologies of those who wantonly chose to ignore the needs and rights of others, inducing oppression, fear, pain, and even death throughout the cosmos. And by these means, evil seeks to supplant the balance of the universe with its perverse nature.

And once all that was good has been extinguished by corruption or annihilation, evil will then turn upon and consume what remains: particularly its immoral servants who have assisted its purpose so well … along with itself. And within that terrible instant of unimaginable exploding quantum fury, it will burn brighter than a trillion galaxies to herald its moment of ultimate triumph. But a moment is all that it shall be. And a micro-second later when the last amber burns and flickers out to ~ R.G. Risch
Controlling Power quotes by R.G. Risch
There are no living beings who exert more power over others, pound for pound, than tiny babies and extremely thin moguls. ~ Stanley Bing
Controlling Power quotes by Stanley Bing
I think actors are getting so much more power these days, but I'm not. I stay very much away from the decisions, the way in which things are orchestrated, what's been changed. I just try to stay completely in the role as the actor and as the character. ~ Nicole Kidman
Controlling Power quotes by Nicole Kidman
Real pleasure comes from overcoming challenges, feeling confidence in your abilities, gaining fluency in skills, and experiencing the power this brings. You develop patience. Boredom no longer signals the need for distraction, but rather the need for new challenges to conquer. ~ Robert Greene
Controlling Power quotes by Robert Greene
Is the power who is jealous of our prosperity, a proper power to govern us? ~ Thomas Paine
Controlling Power quotes by Thomas Paine
If you change your words to positive reinforcement, the negative reactions will lose their power ~ Bluenscottish
Controlling Power quotes by Bluenscottish
In the space between stimulus (what happens) and how we respond, lies our freedom to choose. Ultimately, this power to choose is what defines us as human beings. We may have limited choices but we can always choose. We can choose our thoughts, emotions, moods, our words, our actions; we can choose our values and live by principles. It is the choice of acting or being acted upon. ~ Stephen R. Covey
Controlling Power quotes by Stephen R. Covey
... We can't control the turn of events. All we can do is ask God for power in your life to go through whatever may be ahead. He has not promised us easy ways out of our problems, but He has promised His strength when we need it to go through adversity ~ Gordon McLean
Controlling Power quotes by Gordon McLean
At the root of every form of ungodliness, injustice, nepotism, selfishness, every rivalry and competitive jealousy, is the monster called greed. ~ Sunday Adelaja
Controlling Power quotes by Sunday Adelaja
Rather than suffering from any individual mental pathology, Goebbels held to a view of the world that he shared with much of the population. In the economic chaos after the humiliating Versailles treaty that concluded the First World War, there were millions like him in Germany. He welcomed the Nazi regime not only because it offered material benefits of various kinds but because it validated impulses that were curbed in the civilisation the Nazis set out to overthrow and destroy. The joy of a type of communal solidarity that was based on hatred of minorities; the pleasure of having these minorities in one's power and subjecting them to persecution; the delirious sense of release that comes from surrendering personal judgement and serving an autocratic leader – these were satisfactions that Nazism, at its peak, provided not only for Goebbels but for a majority of Germans. ~ John N. Gray
Controlling Power quotes by John N. Gray
I want to teach the post basic moves: turn and bank; drop-step and shoot a power layup; turn to the middle, pump-fake, one-bounce layup; and I want to teach five power moves. They are power layup straight up; pump-fake one bounce to the other side power layup; pogo when you catch it up high, keep it up high, and shoot it; and then the two-hand follow shot. ~ Jim Harrick
Controlling Power quotes by Jim Harrick
I glanced across the room at Thaddeus seated at a long table within a group of shop keepers, and I contemplated him strongly. My heart leaped in my chest at the mere sight of him. I felt myself overcome. The acts of kindness and sweet attention and gratifying moments of passion afforded me by this man since the day of our marriage were purely pleasing. To be loved was a desirous affair! It was the aim of every beating heart! I nearly cast aside my concerns and allowed myself to be consumed by these agreeable sentiments except for one thing: I could not forget how stripped of power and dignity I had felt that very morning. Thaddeus had essentially commanded me to sit and stay like a dog. And I had heeded my master without so much as a growl!

This was not me. No one stayed me.

I watched those at the table grow more intensely involved in the details of a trade agreement I cared nothing about. Such business bartering was always selfishly motivated. When it appeared that my husband's attention was engrossed on a point of aggressive negotiation, I excused myself from the weaving party and slipped out the back door. I turned down the alleyway and hurried to a crumbling chimney flue that was easy enough to climb. Almost immediately, a fit of anxiety gripped at my chest, and I felt as if a war was being waged in my gut - a battle between my desire to protect what harmony existed in my marriage and the selfish want to reclaim an ounce of the independence I had lo ~ Richelle E. Goodrich
Controlling Power quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
I was made to protect you, female. I've claimed you, whether you accept it or not, and it's an honor that I take very seriously. If any male lays an unwanted finger on you, I will break it. If you hunger, I will feed you. If you're cold, then I will warm you with my body. If you're taken from me, then I'll track you. Never doubt my devotion to you." He gripped my head firmly. "I once gave a woman my heart, because that's all I had to give. But you, Silver, you're the pulse that keeps me alive. I was a soft man once, but no more. I don't know if you can accept the man that I've become, because all I have to offer you is my life. I want to shred Tarek apart for the fear he's made you feel when looking at me. He's made you afraid of something that is natural to my kind - an expression of my passion. My fangs are not just weapons." His voice strained and I knew.

I knew.

Denying a part of him was denying him completely. Maybe someday I could look at them without flinching, but it was too soon. They represented power and passion in his world. But in my world, they were death and pain.

I stroked his cheek and he leaned into me and closed his eyes.

"Give me time, Logan."

He slipped his hand behind the nape of my neck and brought his lips close to my ear - words melting into a soft whisper. "I'll wait for you. ~ Dannika Dark
Controlling Power quotes by Dannika Dark
Faith has wings. ~ Juliette Power
Controlling Power quotes by Juliette Power
Illinois Senator Paul Simon, once said "The test for a Supreme Court nominee is not where he stands on any one specific issue. The test is this: Will you use your power on the court to restrict freedom or expand it"? ~ Dick Durbin
Controlling Power quotes by Dick Durbin
Ambition is one of the ungovernable passions of the human heart. The love of power is insatiable and uncontrollable. ~ John Adams
Controlling Power quotes by John Adams
Where is peace to be found? The answer is surprising but clear. In weakness. Why there? Because in our weakness, our familiar ways of controlling and manipulating our world are being stripped away, and we are forced to let go from doing much, thinking much, and relying on our self-sufficiency. Right there where we are most vulnerable, the peace that is not of this world is mysteriously hidden. ~ Henri Nouwen
Controlling Power quotes by Henri Nouwen
(President Nixon,) in the face of a vote to impeach he might try, as "commander-in-chief", to use military forces to keep himself in power. ~ Carl T. Rowan
Controlling Power quotes by Carl T. Rowan
If you put your soul against the oar with me, the power that made the universe will enter your sinew from a source not outside of your limbs, but from a holy realm that lives within us. ~ Rumi
Controlling Power quotes by Rumi
The world will never believe in a religion in which there is no power. ~ Samuel Chadwick
Controlling Power quotes by Samuel Chadwick
Neither failure nor success has the power to change your inner state of Being. ~ Eckhart Tolle
Controlling Power quotes by Eckhart Tolle
The word and the image mutually excluded each other. Joseph was a literary man to his very marrow; he put faith in the invisible Word; it was the most miraculous thing in all the world; though without form it had more power than anything endowed with form ~ Lion Feuchtwanger
Controlling Power quotes by Lion Feuchtwanger
Today the real test of power is not capacity to make war but capacity to prevent it. ~ Anne O'Hare McCormick
Controlling Power quotes by Anne O'Hare McCormick
I always said I wanted to be scientist, but I didn't really have the staying power. ~ Nina Conti
Controlling Power quotes by Nina Conti
You look at the pillars of the state: politics, the media, police, lawyers - they've all got their formal role, and then nestling above that is that power elite who are networked in through soft, social links, that are actually running the show. Why didn't I know that 10 years ago, and why didn't I rail against it? Why did I become part of it? ~ Tom A. Watson
Controlling Power quotes by Tom A. Watson
Melville brought to the task a sound knowledge of actual whaling, much curious learning in the literature of the subject, and, above all, an imagination which worked with great power upon the facts of his own experience. ~ Carl Clinton Van Doren
Controlling Power quotes by Carl Clinton Van Doren
God is all-powerful.
God is all-capable.
God is all-knowing. ~ Lailah Gifty Akita
