Famous quotes containing the word authority:
“It is not God that is worshipped but the group or authority that claims to speak in His name. Sin becomes disobedience to authority not violation of integrity.”
—Sarvepalli, Sir Radhakrishnan (18881975)
“The authority of government, even such as I am willing to submit to,for I will cheerfully obey those who know and can do better than I, and in many things even those who neither know nor can do so well,is still an impure one: to be strictly just, it must have the sanction and consent of the governed. It can have no pure right over my person and property but what I concede to it.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Authority poisons everybody who takes authority on himself.”
—Vladimir Ilyich Lenin (18701924)
