In a democracy the poor will have more power than the rich, because there are more of them, and the will of the majority is supreme.
The fact is that my wife if she had common sense would have more power over me than any other whatsoever, for my heart always alights upon the nearest perch.
Power doesn’t back up in the face of a smile, or in the face of a threat of some kind of nonviolent loving action. It’s not the nature of power to back up in the face of anything but some more power.
Power never takes a back step only in the face of more power.
Many women have more power than they recognize, and they’re very hesitant to use it, for they fear they won’t be loved.
