Famous quotes containing the words station and/or power:
“Say first, of God above, or Man below,
What can we reason, but from what we know?
Of Man what see we, but his station here,
From which to reason, or to which refer?
Thro worlds unnumberd tho the God be known,
Tis ours to trace him only in our own.
—Alexander Pope (16881744)
“You cannot have power for good without having power for evil too. Even mothers milk nourishes murderers as well as heroes.”
—George Bernard Shaw (18561950)
