Corrupt Power quotes by Colman McCarthy
#7. The students I've been with these twenty years are looking for a world where it becomes a little easier to love and a lot harder to hate, where learning nonviolence means that we dedicate our hearts, minds, time, and money to a commitment that the force of love, the force of truth, the force of justice, and the force of organized resistance to corrupt power are seen as sane and the force of fists, guns, armies, and bombs insane. #Quote by Colman McCarthy

Corrupt Power quotes by Dennis Prager
#10. African economists have argued that corruption - not Western colonialism, not lack of Western aid - is why Africa hasn't escaped poverty. These economists have begged Western countries to stop giving monetary aid to corrupt African countries because nearly all the money goes to corrupt government officials and thereby further increases their corrupt power. Meanwhile, in Europe, North America, Japan, Singapore, and a handful of other countries, corruption is far more likely to be prosecuted and therefore far less prevalent. That is a major reason for their continuing prosperity. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Corrupt Power quotes by Phil Mitchell
#11. How many people actually read the Bible and follow it? The truth is right there. How many people know what a marriage or family is all about?

Corrupt Power quotes by Bernard-Germain De La Cépède
#14. Man, attracted by the treasure that the victory over the whale might afford him, has troubled the peace of their immense solitary abodes, violated their refuges, sacrificed all those which the icy, unapproachable polar deserts could not screen from his blow; and the war he has had made on them has been especially cruel because he has seen that it is large catches that make his commerce prosperous, his industry vital, his sailors numerous, his navigators daring, his pilots experienced, his navies strong and his power great.

Thus it is that these giants among giants have fallen beneath his arms; and because his genius is immortal and his science now imperishable, because he has been able to multiply without limit the imaginings of his mind, they will not cease to be the victims of his interest until they have ceased to exist. In vain do they flee before him; his art will transport him to the ends of the earth; they find no sanctuary except in nothingness. #Quote by Bernard-Germain De La Cépède
Corrupt Power quotes by Margaret Atwood
#15. She wasn't stupid. She just didn't want to put her neuron power into long sentences. #Quote by Margaret Atwood

Corrupt Power quotes by Alister E. McGrath
#17. The state is concerned with the promotion of outward righteousness arising from the individual being constrained to keep the law. The Gospel alters human nature, whereas the state merely restrains human greed and evil, having no positive power to alter human motivation. #Quote by Alister E. McGrath
Corrupt Power quotes by Anonymous
#18. We won!' Prestoff shouted. One of the giants turned to face him. 'We're finished here, thank the God-Emperor,' the captain said. Buzzing split the air as power weapons were activated. The storm troopers raised their hellguns. Sadness aching in his eyes, the Silver Saint murmured, 'Not quite. #Quote by Anonymous

Corrupt Power quotes by Carolyn Baker
#25. There is no one story that will replace the American dream, but stories
like this one - and there are thousands - can inform the myth or myths
we create for building and preserving the next culture. In order to do so,
however, we must recognize that we cannot live without myth, for it is an
essential part of our humanity. If we attempt to do so - given the fact that
something in us needs myth - we
will only create more myths that echo
the American dream - with themes of heroism, greed, entitlement, narcissism,
exploitation, exceptionalism, and myriad abuses of power. How we prepare for and navigate collapse will provide the raw materials for the myths we make and will live by in a postindustrial world. #Quote by Carolyn Baker
Corrupt Power quotes by Daniel G. Amen
#26. When a woman understands the uniqueness of the female brain - how to care for it, how to make the most of its strengths, how to overcome its challenges, how to fall in love with it, and ultimately, how to unleash its full power - there is no stopping her. In her personal development, at work, and in her relationships, she can bring the best of herself to her family, her community, and her planet. By contrast, a woman who is not caring optimally for her brain, who is not giving it the full range of nutrients, exercise, sleep, and emotional support that it needs, is squandering her most valuable resource. If you are not taking good care of your brain, you are at a significantly higher risk of brain fog, memory problems, low energy, distractibility, poor decisions, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. #Quote by Daniel G. Amen
Corrupt Power quotes by Romano Guardini
#27. Jesus was no cold Superman - he was more human than any of us. Entirely pure, unweakened by evil, he was loving and open to the core. His ardor, truth, sensitivity, power, capacity for joy and pain were unlimited, and everything that happened to him happened in the immeasurableness of his divinity. #Quote by Romano Guardini
Corrupt Power quotes by James Madison
#28. As the people are the only legitimate fountain of power, and it is from them that the constitutional charter, under which the several branches of government hold their power, is derived, it seems strictly consonant to the republican theory, to recur to the same original authority, not only whenever it may be necessary to enlarge, diminish, or new-model the powers of the government, but also whenever any one of the departments may commit encroachments on the chartered authorities of the others. #Quote by James Madison
Corrupt Power quotes by Nilantha Ilangamuwa
#29. That the military have the power to manipulate personal liberties while cocking a snook at justice and freedom in Balochistan is a fact. #Quote by Nilantha Ilangamuwa
Corrupt Power quotes by John Damascene
#30. The Son is the counsel and wisdom and power of the Father. #Quote by John Damascene
Corrupt Power quotes by Marcia Bjornerud
#31. To my surprise, I found that geology demanded a type of whole-brain thinking I hadn't encountered before. It creatively appropriated ideas from physics and chemistry for the investigation of unruly volcanoes and oceans and ice sheets, It applied scholarly habits one associates with the study of literature and the arts - the practice of close reading, sensitivity to allusion and analogy, capacity for spatial visualization - to the examination of rocks. Its particular form of inferential logic demanded mental versatility and a vigorous but disciplined imagination. And its explanatory power was vast; it was nothing less than the etymology of the world. #Quote by Marcia Bjornerud
Corrupt Power quotes by Tony Robbins
#32. Knowledge is potential; action is power. #Quote by Tony Robbins
Corrupt Power quotes by Andrei Tarkovsky
#33. I'VE NOTICED, FROM MY EXPERIENCE, IF THE EXTERNAL, EMOTIONAL CONSTRUCTION OF IMAGES IN A FILM ARE BASED ON THE FILMMAKER'S OWN MEMORY, ON THE KINSHIP OF ONE'S PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH THE FABRIC OF THE FILM, THEN THE FILM WILL HAVE THE POWER TO AFFECT THOSE WHO SEE IT. #Quote by Andrei Tarkovsky
Corrupt Power quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#34. Only he Who is smitten with the arrows of love, Knows its power. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Corrupt Power quotes by Salman Rushdie
#35. The time-honored role of the artist [is] to speak truth to power. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Corrupt Power quotes by Chloe Thurlow
#36. Words have a taste, sweet but subtle, like dark chocolate; the scent of old bookshops; a flamenco rhythm; the feeling of the rain on your face on sunny days. Words are cruel and spiteful sometimes, wise and loving at others. #Quote by Chloe Thurlow
Corrupt Power quotes by Mario
#37. Bigger than any obstacle is the strength that one posses
It's a power that overcomes every obstacle #Quote by Mario
Corrupt Power quotes by Bonaventure
#38. We, therefore, pray
to the most kind Father
through you, his only-begotten Son,
who for us became man, was crucified and glorified,
that he send us
out of his treasures
the Spirit of sevenfold grace
who rested upon you in all fullness:
the Spirit, I say, of WISDOM,
that we may taste the life-giving flavors
of the fruit of the tree of life,
which you truly are;
the gift also of UNDERSTANDING,
by which the intentions of our mind are illumined;
the gift of COUNSEL,
by which we may follow in your footsteps
on the right paths;
the gift of FORTITUDE,
by which we may be able to weaken the violence
of our enemies' attacks;
the gift of KNOWLEDGE,
by which we may be filled with the brilliant light
of your sacred teaching
to distinguish good and evil;
the gift of PIETY,
by which we may acqire a merciful heart;
the gift of FEAR,
by which we may draw away from all evil
and be set at peace
by submitting in awe to your eternal majesty.
for you have wished
that we ask for these things
in that sacred prayer which you have taught us;
and now we ask to obtain them,
through your cross,
for the praise of your most holy name.
to you,
with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
be honor and glory,
thanksgiving, beauty and power,
forever and ever.
Amen.

Corrupt Power quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
#39. The real power and test of our ministry (calling) is not in the pulpit or public arena, but in our private lives, our home. #Quote by Bernard Kelvin Clive
Corrupt Power quotes by George Friedman
#40. Maintaining the balance of power should be as fundamental to American foreign policy as the Bill of Rights is to domestic policy. #Quote by George Friedman
Corrupt Power quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#41. Going somewhere?" Tamlin asked. His voice was not entirely of this world.
I suppressed a shudder. "Midnight snack," I said, and I was keenly aware of every movement, every breath I took as I neared him.
His bare chest was painted with whorls of dark blue woad, and from the smudges in the paint, I knew exactly where he'd been touched. I tried not to notice that they descended past his muscled midriff.
I was about to pass him when he grabbed me, so fast that I didn't see anything until he had me pinned against the wall. The cookie dropped from my hand as he grasped my wrists. "I smelled you," he breathed, his painted chest rising and falling so close to mine. "I searched for you, and you weren't there."
He reeked of magic. When I looked into his eyes, remnants of power flickered there. No kindness, none of the wry humor and gentle reprimands. The Tamlin I knew was gone.
"Let go," I said as evenly as I could, but his claws punched out, imbedding in the wood above my hands. Still riding the magic, he was half-wild.
"You drove me mad," he growled, and the sound trembled down my neck, along my breasts until they ached. "I searched for you, and you weren't there. When I didn't find you," he said, bringing his face closer to mine, until we shared breath, "it made me pick another."
I couldn't escape. I wasn't entirely sure that I wanted to.
"She asked me not to be gentle with her, either," he snarled, his teeth bright in the moonlight. He brough #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Corrupt Power quotes by Debasish Mridha
#42. You are a living, breathing magnet, and love is your magnetic power. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Corrupt Power quotes by Silver RavenWolf
#43. Magick, in it's own way, is a science of psychology because it uses the power of the mind to bring forth change in one's life. #Quote by Silver RavenWolf
Corrupt Power quotes by Ernest Holmes
#44. Anything that will enable us to express greater life, greater happiness, greater power
so long as it does not harm anyone
must be the Will of God for us. #Quote by Ernest Holmes
Corrupt Power quotes by Dee Hock
#45. The ultimate insanity is to so organize society that power, wealth, and information are concentrated in the hands of so few people that they have the power, for whatever reason, to put to death our species and the living earth as well. But so we have. #Quote by Dee Hock
Corrupt Power quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#46. There is a fine line I have to walk throughout the writing process in a novel. It is this line between drama and melodrama, and it is this line between evoking genuine emotional power and being manipulative. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Corrupt Power quotes by Mark Frost
#47. Why am I telling you this?" he went on. "A secret's only a secret as long as you keep it. Once you tell someone it loses all its power--for good or for ill--like that, it's just another piece of information. But a real mystery can't be solved, not completely. It's always just out of reach, like a light around the corner; you might catch a glimpse of what it reveals, feel its warmth, but you can't know the heart of it, not really. That's what gives it value: It can't be cracked, it's bigger than you and me, bigger than everything we know. Those tight-ass suits can keep their secrets, they don't add up to anything. This deep in the game, pal, I'll take mystery every time. #Quote by Mark Frost
