It is not in everyone’s power to secure wealth,office or honors; but every one maybe good, generous, and wise.
(Luc de Clapiers Marquis de Vauvenargues said)

(Alice Walker said)
The lust for power can be self-destructive. It turns one into a devil.
(Andreas Laskaratos said)
The power to tax is the power to destroy.
