Famous quotes containing the word power:
“Democracy shows not only its power in reforming governments, but in regenerating a race of menand this is the greatest blessing of free governments.”
—Andrew Jackson (17671845)
“Who can measure the advantages that would result if the magnificent abilities of these women could be devoted to the needs of government, society and home, instead of being consumed in the struggle to obtain their birthright of individual freedom? Until this be gained we can never know, we can not even prophesy the capacity and power of women for the uplifting of humanity.”
—Susan B. Anthony (18201906)
“Mothers who have little sense of their own minds and voices are unable to imagine such capacities in their children. Not being fully aware of the power of words for communicating meaning, they expect their children to know what is on their minds without the benefit of words. These parents do not tell their children what they mean by good much less why. Nor do they ask the children to explain themselves.”
—Mary Field Belenky (20th century)
