Famous quotes containing the words abuse of, power and/or abuse:

    Th’ abuse of greatness is when it disjoins
    Remorse from power.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The preservation of life seems to be rather a slogan than a genuine goal of the anti-abortion forces; what they want is control. Control over behavior: power over women. Women in the anti-choice movement want to share in male power over women, and do so by denying their own womanhood, their own rights and responsibilities.
    Ursula K. Le Guin (b. 1929)

    But I’ve heard mankind abuse thee;
    And perhaps it’s rather strange,
    But I thought that I would choose thee
    For encomium, as a change.
    Charles Stuart Calverley (1831–1884)
