POWER to the PEOPLE!

Sixty-three hours and counting.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. - Abraham Lincoln
I'm ready to be tested. Really. Maybe along the lines of Sir Galahad? "Wait! I can defeat them! There's only a hundred and fifty of them!"
It is said that power corrupts, but actually it's more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power. - David Brin
So I'm insane. Sue me.
If absolute power corrupts absolutely, does absolute powerlessness make you pure? - Harry Shearer
No. Stinky, but not pure.
Power corrupts. Absolute power is kind of neat. - John Lehman
Braggart.
Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power. - Seneca
Oh, sure. Like Rome didn't have SLAVES to generate all their electricity...
Never work just for money or for power. They won't save your soul or help you sleep at night. - Marian Wright Edelman
Wrong sister. Keeping the temperature in the house below 85 DEFINITELY helps you sleep at night...and the utility company wants cash.
Power, however it has evolved, whatever its origins, will not be given up without a struggle. - Shulamith Firestone
On the contrary. We gave it up just like ::snap:: that.
We thought, because we had power, we had wisdom. - Stephen Vincent Benet
And it was true. Try using your Encarta CD-ROM without it.
Once, power was considered a masculine attribute. In fact, power has no sex. - Katherine Graham
Oh, power has sex all right. It's NO POWER that has no sex. Because it's TOO DANGED HOT!
I don't like being outsmarted by insignificant humans... even if they DO have special powers! - Lord Zedd
If I could only get my hands on one of those Power Rangers...
