A good indignation brings out all one's powers. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Author: Emerson, Ralph WaldoEra: 1803
 
Our laws make law impossible; our liberties destroy all freedom; our property is organized robbery; our morality an impudent hypocrisy; our wisdom is administered by inexperienced or mal-experienced dupes; our power wielded by cowards and weaklings; and our honour false in all its points. I am an enemy of the existing order for good reasons. -- George Bernard Shaw
Author: Shaw, George BernardEra: 1856
 
To know the pains of power, we must go to those who have it; to know its pleasures, we must go to those who seek it: the pains of power are real, its pleasures imaginary. -- Charles C. Colton

Strive with thy thoughts unclean before they overpower thee. Use them as they will thee, for if thou sparest them and they take root and grow, know well, these thoughts will overpower and kill thee. Beware! Suffer not their shadow to approach. For it will grow, increase in size and power, and then this thing of darkness will absorb thy being before thou hast well realized the black foul monster's presence. -- H. P. Blavatsky
Author: Blavatsky, H. P.Era: 1831

Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control, these three alone lead life to sovereign power. -- Alfred Lord Tennyson
Author: Tennyson, Alfred LordEra: 1809
 
What is thought? It is not Matter, nor Spirit. It is not a Thing; but a power and Force. I make upon a paper certain conventional marks, that represent that Thought. There is no power or Virtue in the marks I write, but only in the Thought which they tell to others. I die, but the Thought still lives. It is a power. The fact that Thought continues to exist an instant, after it makes its appearance in the soul, proves it immortal: for there is nothing conceivable that can destroy it. The spoken words, being mere sounds, may vanish into thin air, and the written ones,mere marks, be burned, erased, destroyed: but the THOUGHT itself lives still, and must live on forever. -- Albert Pike
Author: Pike, AlbertEra: 1809

Author: Hoffer, EricEra: 1902
 
The eye sees what it brings the power to see. -- Thomas Carlyle
Author: Carlyle, ThomasEra: 1795
 
Beware of dissipating your powers; strive constantly to concentrate them. Genius thinks it can do whatever it sees others doing, but it is sure to repent every ill-judged outlay. -- Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Author: Goethe, Johann VonEra: 1749
 
Ambition has but one reward for all: A little power, a little transient fame; A grave to rest in, and a fading name! -- William Winter

A Human Thought is an actual EXISTENCE, and a Force and power, capable of acting upon and controlling matter as well as mind. -- Albert Pike
Author: Pike, AlbertEra: 1809
 
The evolution of man is the evolution of his consciousness, and "consciousness" cannot evolve unconsciously. The evolution of man is the evolution of his will, and "will" cannot evolve involuntarily. The evolution of man is the evolution of his power of doing, and "doing" cannot be the result of things which "happen." -- Gurdjieff
Author: GurdjieffEra: 1873
 
...The eternal vital power builds them in the likeness of older worlds, placing them on the Imperishable Centres. How does he build them? He collects the fiery dust. He makes balls of fire, runs through them, and round them, infusing life there into, then sets them into motion; some one way, some the other way. They are cold, he makes them hot. They are dry, he makes them moist. They shine, he fans and cools them. Thus he acts from one twilight to the other, during Seven Eternities. -- Book of Dzyan
Author: Book of DzyanEra: -3000

What is the source of sadness, but feebleness of the mind? What giveth it power but the want of reason? Rouse thyself to the combat, and she quitteth the field before thou strikest. -- Akhenaton

Beauty attracts us men; but if, like an armed magnet it is pointed, beside, with gold and silver, it attracts with tenfold power. -- Jean Paul Richter
Author: Richter, Jean PaulEra: 1763
 
There was neither non-existence nor existence then; there was neither the realm of space nor the sky beyond. There was no distinguishing sign of night nor of day. That One breathed, windless, by its own impulse. Other than that there was nothing beyond. Darkness was hidden by darkness in the beginning; with no distinguishing sign, all this was water. The life force that was, was covered with emptiness, that one arose through the power of heat. Desire came upon that one in the beginning; that was the first seed of mind. -- Rig Veda
Author: Veda, RigEra: -1200
