Edward Abbey
Walking is the only form of transportation in which a man proceeds erect - like a man - on his own legs, under his own power. There is immense satisfaction in that.
George Orwell
Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.
Joan Didion
New York was no mere city. It was instead an infinitely romantic notion, the mysterious nexus of all love and money and power, the shining and perishable dream itself.
To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves – there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.
John F. Kennedy
[Happiness is] the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.
Stoic teaching
Remember you have the power to have no opinion.
W.B. Prescott
In any contest between power and patience, bet on patience.
