#1. To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty. - Author: June Jordan
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by June Jordan
#2. You mistake me Alexandra. There is no crime in wanting these things. Only people who have never lived without comfort deride it as bourgeois." She winked. "The purest Marxists are always men. Calamity comes too easily to women. Our lives can come apart in a single gesture, a rogue wave. And money? Money is the rock we cling to when the current would seize us. - Author: Leigh Bardugo
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#3. Cross," she whispered. "Please-"
And in that plea, he lost himself. "Yes, love," he said, inhaling her heady, glorious scent. "I'll give you everything you want. Everything you need."
He stroked into her softness again, and he wondered at the way she wept for him, not knowing what he would give her... what he could do to her... and wanting it nonetheless. "Do you feel it? The truth of it? How much you want me?"
"I want..." she started, then stopped.
He turned his head, nipping at the soft skin of her inner thigh, reveling in the softness there- that untouched, uncharted, silken spread. "Say it." He would give it to her. Anything in his power. Anything beyond it.
She looked down at him, blue eyes fairly glowing with desire. "I want you to want me."
He closed his eyes at that; trust Pippa to be forthright even here, even now, even as she bared herself to his eyes and mouth and hands. Trust her to strip this moment of all remaining shrouds, leaving it raw and bare and honest.
God help him, he told her the truth. He wasn't certain he could do anything but. "I do, love. I want you more than you could ever know. More than I could have ever dreamed. I want you enough for two men. For ten."
She laughed at that, the sound coming on a wicked movement of strong hips and soft stomach. "I don't require ten. Just you."
Even as he knew he would never be worthy enough for her, the words went straight to the hard, straining length of him, and he k - Author: Sarah MacLean
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Sarah MacLean
#4. If you're a woman doing classic theater, the big roles are often destroyers. I've played Hedda Gabler, Lady Macbeth, some of the Chekhovian heroines, Electra, Phaedra - they're all powerful women, but they're forces of negativity. - Author: Eve Best
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Eve Best

#6. Want me to say it? Want me to confess what makes me an actual felon and reserves me a choice spot in hell?"

"Please, Alexandria Patra," Preton said, "tell me all your regrets."

Her eyes narrowed. "I taught children to surrender their developing minds to concepts like the greater good or the good of society which can't exist in any form in this world without actual kids being trampled underneath their untouchable banners."

Pointing at her own chest, she added, "I taught children that in order to live up to those 'higher' ideals they must be obedient - to others, must sacrifice their dreams - to the needs of others. I taught them it was more important to be a part of a group than to stand on their own judgment. I told the non-conforming kids they should feel guilty for wanting to live on their own terms."

Alexa swept a hand forward, pointing it at Preton. "I then delivered every ego-stripped, dream-crushed child to the power mongers of the world like you, who will use this universally accepted mirage of morality to control them. - Author: S.W. Southwick

#7. I have bought golden opinions from all sorts of people. - Author: William Shakespeare
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by William Shakespeare
#8. Of course I'd been long enough on land to know earthly love, and it had always ended in a battle, in each wanting to be the stronger, the superior in the relation. It is commonly called 'the battle of the sexes,' but I don't know if that is the right term. In truth it's a question of a power struggle, of a battle not to lose oneself, to maintain one's sovereignty - one's property rights. Only the very strong can live with no fear of losing their autonomy. Still, this is the precondition for loving: not to want power - not to want to own someone.
There can be talk of love only when one gives up one's self-assertion, when one lays down arms and capitulates fully. When one no longer defends oneself. Love is the absolute yielding, the total surrender – unconditionally. It knows no reservations, no defense. Love creates no need to be the strongest; it knows no lust for power, no personality struggle. Love is pure devotion, absolute self-surrender. Only one who is strong enough not to fear losing his personality can love. To love, one must be able to forsake oneself, to make the other free. And it is this which we're not strong enough to do. - Author: Jens Bjørneboe
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Jens Bjørneboe
#9. My lascivious blood leaves me no choice but to lust for men. No matter how common I become, how ugly, how old, as long as there is life in my body I will go on wanting men. That's just my fate. Even if men are no longer amazed when they see me, even if they no longer desire me, even if they belittle me, I have to sleep with them. No, I want to sleep with them. It's the retribution for a divinity that no one can sustain forever. I suppose you could say my 'power' was little more than sin. - Author: Natsuo Kirino
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Natsuo Kirino
#10. Why would I what?" Will asked, wanting another bite of his burger. "Why would you risk your job teaching some stupid fantasy book?" "Because alternative universe literature promotes critical thinking, imagination, empathy, and creative problem solving. Children who are fluent in fiction are more able to interpret nonfiction and are better at understanding things like basic cause and effect, sociology, politics, and the impact of historical events on current events. Many of our technological advances were imagined by science fiction writers before the tech became available to create them, and many of today's inventors were inspired by science fiction and fantasy to make a world more like the world in the story. Many of today's political conundrums were anticipated by science fiction writers like Orwell, Huxley, and Heinlein, and sci-fi and fantasy tackle ethical problems in a way that allows people to analyze the problem with some emotional remove, which is important because the high emotions are often what lead to violence. Works like Harry Potter tackle the idea of abuse of power and - " Will stopped himself and swallowed. Everybody at the table, including Kenny, was staring at him in openmouthed surprise. "Anyway," he said before taking a monster bite of his cooling hamburger on a sudden attack of nerves, "iss goomfer umf." "It's good for us," Kenny translated, sounding a little stunned - Author: Amy Lane
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Amy Lane
#11. Since Aureliano at that time had very confused notions about the difference between Conservatives and Liberals, his father in law gave him some schematic lessons. The Liberals, he said, were Freemasons, bad people, wanting to hang priests, to institute civil marriage and divorce, to recognize the rights of illegitimate children as equal to those of legitimate ones, and to cut the country up into a federal system that would take power away from the supereme authority. The Conservatives, on the other hand, who had received their power directly from God, proposed the establishment of public order and family morality. They were the defenders of the faith of Christ, of the principle of authority, and were not prepared to permit the country to be broken down into autonomous entities. - Author: Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
#12. The illegitimate use of a state by economic interests for their own ends is based upon a preexisting illegitimate power of the state to enrich some persons at the expense of others. Eliminate that illegitimate power of giving differential economic benefits and you eliminate or drastically restrict the motive for wanting political influence. - Author: Robert Nozick
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Robert Nozick
#13. Years later, after other experiences with dogs, I wondered if their species were shaped and charmed to serve as four-legged guides able to assist in leading humanity back to our first - and lost - home. By the example of their joy and humility, by wanting nothing more than food and play and love, by the deep satisfaction that they take from those humble things, they belie all creeds of power and fame. Although they have the teeth to tear, it is by swish of tail and yearning eyes that they most easily get what they want. - Author: Dean Koontz
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Dean Koontz
#14. Whether or not you believe in God, you must believe this: when we as a species abandon our trust in a power greater than us, we abandon our sense of accountability. Faiths ... all faiths ... are admonitions that there is something we cannot understand, something to which we are accountable. With faith we are accountable to each other, to ourselves, and to a higher truth. Religion is flawed, but only because man is flawed. The church consists of a brotherhood of imperfect, simple souls wanting only to be a voice of compassion in a world spinning out of control. - Author: Dan Brown
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Dan Brown
#15. Imagine a being like nature, wasteful beyond measure, indifferent beyond measure, without mercy and justice, fertile and desolate and uncertain at the same time; imagine indifference itself as a power, how could you live according to this indifference? Living, is that not precisely wanting to be different? And supposing your imperative 'live according to nature' meant at bottom as much as 'live according to life', how could you not do that? Why make a principle of what you yourselves are and must be? - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#16. Life repeats Shakespearian themes more often than we think. Did Lady Macbeth, Richard III, and King Claudius exist only in the Middle Ages? Shylock wanted to cut a pound of flesh from the body of the merchant of Venice. Is that a fairy tale? - Author: Varlam Shalamov
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Varlam Shalamov
#17. Who can be wise, amazed, temp'rate, and furious,
Loyal and neutral, in a moment? No man. - Author: William Shakespeare
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by William Shakespeare
#18. I'm the world's lightest sleeper. On a bad day, I can make Lady Macbeth look like a raging narcoleptic. - Author: Jodi Taylor
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Jodi Taylor
#19. Don't be afraid when you have to pray fervently because of your circumstances. God is wanting to do something great through you! - Author: Stormie O'martian
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Stormie O'martian
#20. Everybody needs a career manager."- Lady Macbeth - Author: Robert Lynn Asprin
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Robert Lynn Asprin
#21. Ilya hit the back of his head against the wall as if he could jolt her out of his mind. But she was already wrapped inside him and he was never going to be free of her. He knew that now, knew that no matter how disciplined he'd always been, his control went out the window whenever he laid eyes on Joley. And discipline wasn't going to save either of them this time.

He couldn't take his eyes off of her as she moved across the stage. Her voice swelled with power, vibrating through his body until he couldn't think with wanting her. He could have lived with that. The chemistry between them was so damn potent he ached every minute of every day, but there was so much more than sex. He belonged to Joley Drake. Body and soul. Men like him didn't ever belong to anyone - and no one belonged to them. Worse, she was slowly stealing his heart. He could take the craving for her body. He could even live without his soul, but if he allowed her access to his heart, he would be lost. - Author: Christine Feehan
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Christine Feehan
#22. We fail?
But screw your courage to the sticking place
And we'll not fail. (Lady Macbeth) - Author: William Shapespeare
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by William Shapespeare
#23. If you are curious and open to the life around you, if you are disturbed as to how, by, and against whom wealth and political power is held and used, if you sense there must be good reasons for your unease, if your curiosity and openness drive you toward wanting to act with others, to "do something," you have much in common with the writers of the three essays in Manifesto. - Author: Adrienne Rich
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Adrienne Rich
#24. My wide eyes make me look much younger without make-up, and although it's fun to have a line in innocence corrupted, I doubt I'll get to play the vampy vixen or a Hedda Gabler or Lady Macbeth. - Author: Talulah Riley
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Talulah Riley
#25. Maybe because I'm a nice and sweet person in life, I like the darker roles. The really dark one is Lady Macbeth. - Author: Anna Netrebko
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Anna Netrebko
#26. My war brought me many things; let yours bring you as much. Life is not to be told, call it as loud as you like, it will not tell itself. No one will be much or little except in someone else's mind, so be careful of the minds you get into, and remember Lady Macbeth, who had her mind in her hand. We can't all be as safe as that. - Author: Djuna Barnes
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Djuna Barnes
#27. To mankind in general Macbeth and Lady Macbeth stand out as the supreme type of all that a host and hostess should not be. - Author: Max Beerbohm
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Max Beerbohm
#28. Power consists in making oneself the goal of another person's social instincts, without seeking to satisfy one's own social instincts through him. The other then does everything one asks. Powerlessness consists in wanting or having to satisfy one's social instincts through another person whose social instincts one has not succeeded in concentrating on oneself - one then does everything the other asks. - Author: Esther Vilar
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Esther Vilar
#29. Close your eyes," he said into her ear. "Come with me." She did so, and suddenly she saw what he saw. She was the wind, the clouds gathering in the smoky sky, the thick snow of deep winter. She was nothing. She was everything. The power gathered somewhere in the space between them, between her flickers of awareness. There is no magic. Things are. Or they are not. She was beyond wanting anything. She didn't care whether she lived or died. She could only feel; the gathering storm, the breath of the wind. - Author: Katherine Arden
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Katherine Arden
#30. We may think there is willpower involved, but more likely ... change is due to want power. Wanting the new addiction more than the old one. Wanting the new me in preference to the person I am now. - Author: George Sheehan
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by George Sheehan
#31. Wisdom warns against desire, but there is power in wanting, power that can fuel the will and keep lit that precious torch, hope. - Author: Eugene Uttley
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Eugene Uttley
#32. In the 1950s kids lost their innocence.
They were liberated from their parents by well-paying jobs, cars, and lyrics in music that gave rise to a new term ---the generation gap.

In the 1960s, kids lost their authority.
It was a decade of protest---church, state, and parents were all called into question and found wanting. Their authority was rejected, yet nothing ever replaced it.

In the 1970s, kids lost their love. It was the decade of me-ism dominated by hyphenated words beginning with self.
Self-image, Self-esteem, Self-assertion....It made for a lonely world. Kids learned everything there was to know about sex and forgot everything there was to know about love, and no one had the nerve to tell them there was a difference.

In the 1980s, kids lost their hope.
Stripped of innocence, authority and love and plagued by the horror of a nuclear nightmare, large and growing numbers of this generation stopped believing in the future.

In the 1990s kids lost their power to reason. Less and less were they taught the very basics of language, truth, and logic and they grew up with the irrationality of a postmodern world.

In the new millennium, kids woke up and found out that somewhere in the midst of all this change, they had lost their imagination. Violence and perversion entertained them till none could talk of killing innocents since none was innocent anymore. - Author: Ravi Zacharias
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#33. No one seeing a beautifully elaborated lyre with its harmonious, orderly arrangement, and hearing the lyre's music will fail to form a notion of its craftsman-player, to recur to him in thought though ignorant of him by sight. In this way the creative power, which moves and safeguards its objects, is clear to us, though it be not grasped by the understanding. Anyone who refuses to progress this far in following instinctive proofs must be wanting in judgment. But still, whatever we imagined or figured to ourselves or reason delineated is not the reality of God. - Author: Gregory Of Nazianzus
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Gregory Of Nazianzus
#34. I always assumed I would leave drama school and do 'Lady Macbeth' and all sorts of serious things. It just didn't happen. - Author: Olivia Colman
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Olivia Colman
#35. I've always wanted to play 'Lady Macbeth' and Strindberg's 'Miss Julie'. - Author: Olivia D'Abo
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by Olivia D'Abo
#36. Nought's had, all's spent, where our desire is got without content. - Author: William Shakespeare
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by William Shakespeare
#37. And nothing is, but what is not. - Author: William Shakespeare
Lady Macbeth Wanting Power quotes by William Shakespeare
#38. And I loved the way that felt. That private battle, and the way I always caved in the end.
So maybe it was fucked up, but to me that was kind of the point of kink. Not the fucked-up-ness, exactly, but the fact that you got to piss on society's idea of fucked up. And nobody could stop you. Finger-waggers couldn't storm your house and tell you it was wrong for one person to call another a kike or a cunt or a fag. Couldn't stop you from taking a shit on your partner's face. Couldn't say you were weak or crazy for wanting to be dressed like a baby or walked like a dog. With kink, you had the power to be your sickest, most secret self.
Maybe one of my goals could be to make that sickness less secret. - Author: J.A. Rock
