#1. Power and wealth are not two of my main stakes. - Author: Ratan Tata
Power And Wealth quotes by Ratan Tata
#2. It may be a union in name, but they fight each other tooth and nail. The lowly squabble over trifles. The great wage secret wars for power and wealth, and they call it government. Wars of words, and tricks, and guile, but no less bloody for that. The casualties are many. - Author: Joe Abercrombie
Power And Wealth quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#3. We have a crisis of leadership in America because our overwhelming power and wealth, earned under earlier generations of leaders, made us complacent, and for too long we have been training leaders who only know how to keep the routine going. Who can answer questions, but don't know how to ask them. Who can fulfill goals, but don't know how to set them. Who think about how to get things done, but not whether they're worth doing in the first place. What we have now are the greatest technocrats the world has ever seen, people who have been trained to be incredibly good at one specific thing, but who have no interest in anything beyond their area of exper­tise. What we don't have are leaders. What we don't have, in other words, are thinkers. People who can think for themselves. People who can formulate a new direction: for the country, for a corporation or a college, for the Army - a new way of doing things, a new way of looking at things. People, in other words, with vision. - Author: William Deresiewicz
Power And Wealth quotes by William Deresiewicz
#4. I never favored any political party. Being a conservative or a liberal, a Republican or a Democrat, these are just labels that people use to categorize each other so that they can quickly decide whether or not they want to listen to what they have to say. Politicians are not interested in empathizing with each other. They simply try to do as little as possible in the way of serving the public while building their reputation among their peers, amassing power and wealth that is unimaginable to the common American citizen that they supposedly represent. - Author: Aaron B. Powell
Power And Wealth quotes by Aaron B. Powell
#5. Despite its enormous power and wealth, China's ruling elite remains absolutely petrified that the free flow of information will undermine its political legitimacy, particularly among China's younger generation. - Author: Tom Lantos
Power And Wealth quotes by Tom Lantos
#6. In the end, it is because the media are driven by the power and wealth of private individuals that they turn private lives into public spectacles. If every private life is now potentially public property, it is because private property has undermined public responsibility. - Author: Terry Eagleton
Power And Wealth quotes by Terry Eagleton
#7. Dictators are allergic to reform, and they are cunning survivors. They will do whatever it takes to preserve their power and wealth, no matter how much blood ends up on their hands. They are master deceivers and talented manipulators who cannot be trusted to change. - Author: George Ayittey
Power And Wealth quotes by George Ayittey
#8. What if good institutions were in fact the product of good intentions? What if the cynicism that is supposed to be rigor and the acquisitiveness that is supposed to be realism are making us forget the origins of the greatness we lay claim to - power and wealth as secondary consequences of the progress of freedom, or, as Whitman would prefer, Democracy? - Author: Marilynne Robinson
Power And Wealth quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#9. How easily we get trapped in that which is not essential - in looking good, winning at competition, gathering power and wealth - when simply being alive is the gift beyond measure. - Author: Parker J. Palmer
Power And Wealth quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#10. Somehow he had catapulted himself beyond the world's value system. But this very fact lay upon him an awesome responsibility to maintain the illusions of other men. - Author: E.L. Doctorow
Power And Wealth quotes by E.L. Doctorow
#11. People are intrigued by fame, power and wealth and I think Hollywood is the only place where you get all three together. - Author: Jackie Collins
Power And Wealth quotes by Jackie Collins
#12. And Bethod means to make war on this? He must be mad."
"Bethod, for all his waste and pride, understands the Union. They are jealous of one another, all those people. It may be a union in name, but they fight each other tooth and nail. The lowly squabble over trifles. The great wage secret wars for power and wealth, and they call it government. Wars of words, and tricks, and guile, but no less bloody for that. The casualties are many. Behind those walls they shout and argue and endlessly bite one another's backs. Old squabbles are never settled, but thrive, and put down roots, and the roots grow deeper with the passing years. It has always been so. They are not like you, Logen. A man here can smile, and fawn, and call you friend, give you gifts with one hand and stab you with the other. You will find this a strange place. - Author: Joe Abercrombie
Power And Wealth quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#13. With regard to equality, this word must not be understood to mean that degress of power and wealth should be exactly the same, but rather that with regard to power, it should be incapable of all violence and never exerted except by virtue of status and the laws; and with regard to wealth, no citizen should be so opulent that he can buy another, and none so poor that he is constrained to sell himself. - Author: Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Power And Wealth quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#14. Knowledge has always been important, of course. The ancient Egyptians did not raise the stones for the pyramids relying on the incantations of their gods. The waters in the irrigation canals of the great Indus Civilisation did not flow according to the laws of ignorance. Knowledge has always been power and wealth. - Author: Mahathir Mohamad
Power And Wealth quotes by Mahathir Mohamad
#15. We dispute the arbitrary distribution of power and wealth, which is claimed as the natural order, but which is in fact not natural at all but rather artificially created and sustained by ancient privileges. - Author: Kate Elliott
Power And Wealth quotes by Kate Elliott
#16. I'm sure that there must have been times when you have read books or watched films and found yourself secretly wishing for the villain to win. Why? Isn't that against the rules by which our society lives? Why should you feel this way? It's simple, really; the villain is the true hero of these tales, not the well-intentioned moron who somehow foils their diabolical scheme. The villain get's all the best lines, has the best costumes, has unlimited power and wealth- why on earth would anyone not want to be the villain? - Author: Mark Walden
Power And Wealth quotes by Mark Walden
#17. We are in the hands of men whose power and wealth have separated them from the reality of daily life and from the imagination. We are right to be afraid. - Author: Grace Paley
Power And Wealth quotes by Grace Paley
#18. Written laws are like spiders' webs; they will catch, it is true, the weak and poor, but would be torn in pieces by the rich and powerful. - Author: Anacharsis The Scythian
Power And Wealth quotes by Anacharsis The Scythian
#19. Hatred is the price that society extracts from its leaders for the honour, power and wealth it bestows unto them. - Author: Awdhesh Singh
Power And Wealth quotes by Awdhesh Singh
#20. The lowly squabble over trifles. The great wage secret wars for power and wealth, and they call it government. Wars of words, and tricks, and guile, but no less bloody for that. - Author: Joe Abercrombie
Power And Wealth quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#21. Now he began to see for the first time the unbelievable magnitude of what man, when he gained power to understand and rule the world in terms of dialectic truths, had lost. He had built empires of scientific capability to manipulate the phenomena of nature into enormous manifestations of his own dreams of power and wealth ... but for this he had exchanged an empire of understanding of equal magnitude: an understanding of what it is to be a part of the world, and not an enemy of it. - Author: Robert M. Pirsig
Power And Wealth quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#22. Be patient. Changes that alter the structure of power and widen opportunity require years of hard work, as those who toiled for the Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts, or have been working for the rights of the disabled and gays, would tell you. It took thirty years of continuous fulmination for women to get the right to vote; fifty years of agitation before employers were required to bargain with unionized workers. Those who benefit from the prevailing allocation of power and wealth don't give up their privileged positions without a fight, and they usually have more resources at their disposal than the insurgents. Take satisfaction from small victories, but don't be discouraged or fall into cynicism. And don't allow yourself to burn out. I - Author: Robert B. Reich
Power And Wealth quotes by Robert B. Reich
#23. I also believe - and hope - that politics and economics will cease to be as important in the future as they have been in the past; the time will come when most of our present controversies on these matters will seem as trivial, or as meaningless, as the theological debates in which the keenest minds of the Middle Ages dissipated their energies. Politics and economics are concerned with power and wealth, neither of which should be the primary, still less the exclusive, concern of full-grown men. - Author: Arthur C. Clarke
Power And Wealth quotes by Arthur C. Clarke
#24. Affection is not important to you, nor to me. You want power Margaret, power and wealth; and so do I. Nothing matters as much as this to either of us, and we will sacrifice anything for it - Author: Philippa Gregory
Power And Wealth quotes by Philippa Gregory
#25. Ever since Constantine made Christianity the official "imperial faith, " Christians have been trying to push the camel of power and wealth through the slender needle's eye of the vision of Jesus. - Author: Kurt Neilson
Power And Wealth quotes by Kurt Neilson
#26. What is crucial to your survival as a race is not the redistribution of power and wealth within the prison but rather the destruction of the prison itself. - Author: Daniel Quinn
Power And Wealth quotes by Daniel Quinn
#27. ... the repression of primitive, violent impulses in favor of civilized behavior was a control mechanism for the more shrewdly aggressive dominators who successfully channeled *their* primitive, violent impulses into a socially acceptable form known as 'ruthlessness,' while monopolizing the right to use outright violence as a last resort for maintaining an otherwise indefensible accumulation of power and wealth. - Author: R.U. Sirius
Power And Wealth quotes by R.U. Sirius
#28. We are a country that prides itself on power and wealth, yet there are millions of children who go hungry every day. It is our responsibility, not only as a nation, but also as individuals, to get involved. So, next time you pass someone on the street who is in need, remember how lucky you are, and don't turn away. - Author: Lesley Boone
Power And Wealth quotes by Lesley Boone
#29. I do not care about power and wealth, father. I want to marry for love."

"You want to marry for love?" The elder Valentino scoffed. "Que mierda. Marrying for love is like adding extra picante to your meal. It may seem like a good idea at the time, but your stomach will curse you for it with ulcers in the end. - Author: Felix Alexander
Power And Wealth quotes by Felix Alexander
#30. Beethoven, he learned, was a proud man who believed absolutely in his own abilities and never bothered to flatter the nobility. Believing that art itself, and the proper expression of emotions, was the most SUBLIME thing in the world, he thought political power and wealth only served one purpose: to make art possible. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Power And Wealth quotes by Haruki Murakami
#31. A single overstatement, wherever or however it occurs, diminishes the whole, and a carefree superlative has the power to destroy, for the reader, the object of the writer's enthusiasm. - Author: E.B. White
Power And Wealth quotes by E.B. White
#32. Baby steps for your nerdy girl, she writes.
The girl clearly underestimates the power of her bum and a seductively minimal pose.
Nerdy my arse, I type back. All the cold showers in the world can't cure what u've done to me.
Cruel wife. - Author: Wendy Higgins
Power And Wealth quotes by Wendy Higgins
#33. Eisenhower's speech contained an unsubtle dig at Rockefeller, in the guise of a dig at Kennedy: "Just as the Biblical Job had his boils, we have a cult of professional pessimists, who ... continually mouth the allegations that America has become a second-rate military power." He was proceeded at the podium by his black special assistant E. Frederic Morrow, who had flown in with the President on Air Force One. "One hundred years ago my grandfather was a slave," radio and TV audiences heard. "Tonight I stand before you as a trusted assistant to the President of the United" - and then the networks cut away for fear of offending their Southern affiliates. - Author: Rick Perlstein
Power And Wealth quotes by Rick Perlstein
#34. Today, we have our own concentrations of economic power. Instead of Standard Oil, U.S. Steel, the Union Pacific Railroad, and J. P. Morgan and Company, we have Amazon, Google, Apple, Facebook, and Microsoft. - Author: George Packer
Power And Wealth quotes by George Packer
#35. For those who fancy that government's projects are uniquely important, or for those who imagine that holding government office makes someone unusually saintly or trustworthy, entrusting government with power that we would never entrust to our neighbors or other private citizens might seem sensible. To me, it's dangerous, unjustified, and unjustifiable. - Author: Donald J. Boudreaux
Power And Wealth quotes by Donald J. Boudreaux
#36. I wish I could be like everybody else in this neighborhood--your basic, normal, unaccomplished person-and go up to my bedroom, and lie down, and sleep. It's going to be a big day today, and I'd like to be ready for it. I wish I could sleep and wake up and find everything in my life different. Not necessarily just the big things,.... but things clearly within my power. - Author: Raymond Carver
Power And Wealth quotes by Raymond Carver
#37. Let your observations and comparisons produce in your mind an abhorrence of domination and power, the parent of slavery, ignorance, and barbarism, which places man upon a level with his fellow tenants of the woods. - Author: Abigail Adams
Power And Wealth quotes by Abigail Adams
#38. Every one knows that the exercise of military power is forever dangerous to civil rights; and we have had recent instances of violences that have been offer'd to private subjects ... - Author: Samuel Adams
Power And Wealth quotes by Samuel Adams
#39. Knowledge is power. Rather, knowledge is happiness, because to have knowledge - broad, deep knowledge - is to know true ends from false, and lofty things from low. To know the thoughts and deeds that have marked man's progress is to feel the great heart-throbs of humanity through the centuries; and if one does not feel in these pulsations a heavenward striving, one must indeed be deaf to the harmonies of life. - Author: Helen Keller
Power And Wealth quotes by Helen Keller
#40. To find the point where hypothesis and fact meet; the delicate equilibrium between dream and reality; the place where fantasy and earthly things are metamorphosed into a work of art; the hour when faith in the future becomes knowledge of the past; to lay down one's power for others in need; to shake off the old ordeal and get ready for the new; to question, knowing that never can the full answer be found; to accept uncertainties quietly, even our incomplete knowledge of God; this is what man's journey is about, I think. - Author: Lillian Smith
Power And Wealth quotes by Lillian Smith
#41. If life were like a video game, she would have used her power move to whip Jen in the air and knock her against the wall with two strikes of a lacrosse stick. Of course, if life really were like a video game, Val would probably have to do that in a bikini and with giant breasts, each one made of separately animated polygons. - Author: Holly Black
Power And Wealth quotes by Holly Black
#42. More effectively than any of the other tales, 'The Emperor's New Clothes' established Andersen's reputation as a man who created stories for children - not just in the sense of target audience, but also as beneficiaries of something extraordinary. The lesson embedded in it is so transparent that its title circulates in the form of proverbial wisdom about social hypocrisy. But more importantly, 'The Emperor's New Clothes' romanticizes children by investing them with the courage to challenge authority and to speak truth to power. - Author: Maria Tatar
Power And Wealth quotes by Maria Tatar
#43. Children understand that 'once upon a time' refers not only
not even primarily
to the past, but to the impalpable regions of the present, the deeper places inside us where princes and dragons, wizards and talking birds, impassable roads, impossible tasks, and happy endings have always existed, alive and bursting with psychic power. - Author: Stephen Mitchell
Power And Wealth quotes by Stephen Mitchell
#44. Once you realize there is a Higher Power, you know you're not alone, that you have a purpose on the planet. You control your destiny instead of letting the day lead you where it may. You seize it, take it and lead it. - Author: Queen Latifah
Power And Wealth quotes by Queen Latifah
#45. Politicians also have no leisure, because they are always aiming at something beyond political life itself, power and glory, or happiness. - Author: Aristotle.
Power And Wealth quotes by Aristotle.
#46. truths are illusions about which one has forgotten that this is what they are; metaphors which are worn out and without sensuous power; coins which have lost their pictures and now matter only as metal, no longer as coins. We still do not know where the urge for truth comes from; for as yet we have heard only of the obligation imposed by society that it should exist: to be truthful means using the customary metaphors - in moral terms: the obligation to lie according to a fixed convention, to lie herd-like in a style obligatory for all. . . . - Author: Friedrich Nietzsche
Power And Wealth quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#47. Tell the angel who will watch over your life to pray now and then for a man who, like Satan, believed himself for an instant to be equal to God, but who realized in all humility that supreme power and wisdom are in the hands of God alone. - Author: Alexandre Dumas
Power And Wealth quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#48. The right to demand the best and refuse the worst and do so not by virtue of your wealth, but your equal status as citizen, thats precisely what the modern Labour Party should stand for - Author: Tony Blair
Power And Wealth quotes by Tony Blair
#49. Power ... Military success is not sufficient to win: economic development, institution-building and the rule of law, promoting internal reconciliation, good governance, providing basic services to the people, training and equipping indigenous military and police forces, strategic communications, and more of these, along with security, are essential ingredients for long-term success ... - Author: Robert M. Gates
Power And Wealth quotes by Robert M. Gates
#50. The readers of our era are less favoured. But courage! I will not pause either to accuse or repine. I know poetry is not dead, nor genius lost; nor has Mammon gained power over either, to bind or slay: they will both assert their existence, their presence, their liberty and strength again one day. Powerful angels, safe in heaven! they smile when sordid souls triumph, and feeble ones weep over their destruction. Poetry destroyed? Genius banished? No! Mediocrity, no: do not let envy prompt you to the thought. No; they not only live, but reign and redeem: and without their divine influence spread everywhere, you would be in hell - the hell of your own meanness. While - Author: Charlotte Bronte
Power And Wealth quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#51. This is not a matter of compromises or adaptations. The power of a new Middle Ages is needed. A change, interior as well as exterior, of barbaric purity is required. Philosophy, "culture", everyday politics: no more of all that. It is not a matter of shifting to the other side of this bed of agony. It is a matter of finally waking up, and standing on one's feet. - Author: Julius Evola
Power And Wealth quotes by Julius Evola
#52. THE POWER OF A COMPELLING CAUSE RESTS IN THE SOUL OF ITS CREATOR, because a cause springs from the soul. It is a spiritual statement from one soul that cannot be the result of many. It comes from a deep place of knowing, some conviction that a richly imagined future could in some way, dramatically and positively, change the world. - Author: Lance Secretan
Power And Wealth quotes by Lance Secretan
#53. Give me the supreme courage of love, this is my prayer - the courage to speak, to do,
to suffer at thy will, to leave all things or be left alone.
Strengthen me on errands of danger, honour me with pain, and help me climb to that difficult mood which sacrifices daily to thee.
Give me the supreme confidence of love, this is my prayer - the confidence that belongs to life in death, to victory in defeat, to the power hidden in frailest beauty, to that dignity in pain which accepts hurt but disdains to return it. - Author: Rabindranath Tagore
Power And Wealth quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#54. And by the influence of heat, light, and electrical powers, there is a constant series of changes [in animal and vegetal substances]; matter assumes new forms, the destruction of one order of beings tends to the conservation of another, solution and consolidation, decay and renovation, are connected, and whilst the parts of the system, continue in a state of fluctuation and change, the order and harmony of the whole remain unalterable. - Author: Humphry Davy
Power And Wealth quotes by Humphry Davy
#55. The issue of power is not bound to power per se, but often depends on the people themselves, to what extent they unconsciously encourage this power and its structures. - Author: Mitra Farahani
Power And Wealth quotes by Mitra Farahani
#56. He had power only to feel, and feeling was torment. - Author: Ambrose Bierce
Power And Wealth quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#57. Van Buren, like many American master-politicians since, was quite capable of combining party ruthlessness with high-mindedness. He was a political schizophrenic, admitting he abused power occasionally and vowing never to do it again (he did of course). ... American political history has since thrown up repeated exemplars of what might be called the Van Buren Syndrome --- men who could combine true zeal for the public interest with fanatical devotion to the party principle. - Author: Paul Johnson
Power And Wealth quotes by Paul Johnson
#58. Art gives charm and beauty to terrible things. That is the power and its glory. It is hard for us to accept the truth that art is doom - a harsh doom for the artist who survives in his art but not as a living human. - Author: Wallace Fowlie
Power And Wealth quotes by Wallace Fowlie
#59. Judas became the spokesman of all those who through the centuries would protest the ornamentation of the Christian cult and would feel that, when the best of gold and jewels were given to the God Who made them, there was some slight made to the poor - not because they were interested in the poor, but because they were envious of that wealth. - Author: Fulton J. Sheen
Power And Wealth quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#60. Influence comes out of the work that you've done and the things you've stood for. Influence and power shouldn't be given to just anybody who wants them. - Author: Millicent Fenwick
Power And Wealth quotes by Millicent Fenwick
#61. The governments of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi-occult power which ... pushed the mass of the American people into the cauldron of World War I. - Author: J. F. C. Fuller
Power And Wealth quotes by J. F. C. Fuller
#62. Seth tilted his head to the side as he stared at me. "What did you just say?"

Taking another step back, I glanced at the door. Could I make a run for it? Seth could definitely catch me, but right now, he probably didn't want to.


My heart stuttered at the raw quality of his voice. I wanted to deny that I'd uttered those words, but I couldn't. How could I when it was the truth, and it wasn't like I could take those words back. I couldn't.

Lowering my hand, I drew in a shallow breath. "I love you; I'm in love with you."

Seth jerked like I'd punched him. "You can't love me. - Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Power And Wealth quotes by Jennifer L. Armentrout
#63. I love you. Why it worked right then, why the webbing of my godmother's spell frayed as though the words had been an open flame, I don't know. I haven't found any explanation for it. There aren't any magical words, really. The words just hold the magic. They give it a shape and a form, they make it useful, describe the images within. I'll say this, though: Some words have a power that has nothing to do with supernatural forces. They resound in the heart and mind, they live long after the sounds of them have died away, they echo in the heart and the soul. They have power, and that power is very real. Those three words are good ones. - Author: Jim Butcher
Power And Wealth quotes by Jim Butcher
#64. Misunderstandings are a normal part of life, and the outcomes of these depend upon how we choose to react to them. - Author: C. JoyBell C.
Power And Wealth quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#65. The Lord has a great work for each of us to do. You may wonder how this can be. You may feel that there is nothing special or superior about you or your ability ... The Lord can do remarkable miracles with a person of ordinary ability who is humble, faithful, and diligent in serving the Lord and seeks to improve himself. This is because God is the ultimate source of power. - Author: James E. Faust
Power And Wealth quotes by James E. Faust
#66. Facebook and Google are battling over who will be our gateway to the rest of the Internet through 'like' buttons and universal logins - giving them huge power over our online identities and activities. - Author: Rebecca MacKinnon
Power And Wealth quotes by Rebecca MacKinnon
#67. Before he could lean down to kiss me, I heard, "A nd that's Evan and Emma, one of Weslyn High's power couples. Evan's gorge' but don't even bother looking―he won't see you. - Author: Rebecca Donovan
Power And Wealth quotes by Rebecca    Donovan
#68. Oh," the girl said, shaking her head. "Don't be so simple. People adore monsters. They fill their songs and stories with them. They define themselves in relation to them. You know what a monster is, young shade? Power. Power and choice. Monsters make choices. Monsters shape the world. Monsters force us to become stronger, smarter, better. They sift the weak from the strong and provide a forge for the steeling of souls. Even as we curse monsters, we admire them. Seek to become them, in some ways." Her eyes became distant. "There are far, far worse things to be than a monster. - Author: Jim Butcher
Power And Wealth quotes by Jim Butcher
#69. The real power, the power we have to fight for night and day, is not power over things, but over men - Author: George Orwell
Power And Wealth quotes by George Orwell
#70. I think every one who has some vague belief in God, until he becomes a Christian, has the idea of an exam, or of a bargain in his mind. The first result of real Christianity is to blow that idea into bits. When they find it blown into bits, some people think this means that Christianity is a failure and give up. They seem to imagine that God is very simple-minded! In fact, of course, He knows all about this. One of the very things Christianity was designed to do was to blow this idea to bits. God has been waiting for the moment at which you discover that there is no question of earning a pass mark in this exam, or putting Him in your debt.

Then comes another discovery. Every faculty you have, your power of thinking or of moving your limbs from moment to moment, is given you by God. If you devoted every moment of your whole life exclusively to His service you could not give Him anything that was not in a sense His own already. So that when we talk of a man doing anything for God or giving anything to God, I will tell you what it is really like.

It is like a small child going to its father and saying, "Daddy, give me sixpence to buy you a birthday present." Of course, the father does, and he is pleased with the child's present. It is all very nice and proper, but only an idiot would think that the father is sixpence to the good on the transaction. When a man has made these two discoveries God can really get to work. It is after this that real life begins. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Power And Wealth quotes by C.S. Lewis
#71. Poverty is restriction and as such, it is the greatest injustice you can perpetrate upon yourself. - Author: Stuart Wilde
Power And Wealth quotes by Stuart Wilde
#72. If we are to meet the growing electricity demand in the United States without significantly increasing emissions of greenhouse gases, we must maintain a diverse supply of electricity, and nuclear power must be part of that mix. - Author: Judy Biggert
Power And Wealth quotes by Judy Biggert
#73. The evil of our times, are mines, dams, power plants and hundreds of smart cities. Shadeless roads, widened by cutting down trees; rivers diverted to fill the flush tanks of five-star hotels; hillocks, the abode of tribal gods, laid bare due to mining; marketplaces without sparrows and trees without birds - Author: U.R. Ananthamurthy
Power And Wealth quotes by U.R. Ananthamurthy
#74. The dead are gone and so their power over the living is only temporary. You lose sleep, you lose appetite, but eventually you fall asleep and eventually you eat - you may hate yourself for it, but the body's demands are incontrovertible. He had always felt guilt about that, that he went on living... p 115 - Author: Anthony Doerr
Power And Wealth quotes by Anthony Doerr
#75. To be beautiful, handsome, means that you possess a power which makes all smile upon and welcome you; that everybody is impressed in your favor and inclined to be of your opinion; that you have only to pass through a street or to show yourself at a balcony to make friends and to win mistresses from among those who look upon you. What a splendid, what a magnificent gift is that which spares you the need to be amiable in order to be loved, which relieves you of the need of being clever and ready to serve, which you must be if ugly, and enables you to dispense with the innumerable moral qualities which you must possess in order to make up for the lack of personal beauty. - Author: Theophile Gautier
Power And Wealth quotes by Theophile Gautier
#76. Goodness, armed with power, is corrupted; and pure love without power is destroyed. - Author: Reinhold Niebuhr
Power And Wealth quotes by Reinhold Niebuhr
#77. Kuyper notes that the scholar is distinct in setting the scope of his stewardship on the mind itself. "Not merely to live," he writes, "but to know that you live and how you live, and how things around you live, and how all that hangs together and lives out of the one efficient cause that proceeds from God's power and wisdom. - Author: Abraham Kuyper
Power And Wealth quotes by Abraham Kuyper
#78. If someone calls you disgusting, they are lusting. It creates an energetic cord of control, which steals power, gifts, money, reputation, and free will choice from you. Drop the parasites. - Author: Deborah Bravandt
Power And Wealth quotes by Deborah Bravandt
#79. In a society where the rights and potential of women are constrained, no man can be truly free. He may have power, but he will not have freedom. - Author: Mary Robinson
Power And Wealth quotes by Mary Robinson
