Power is like being a lady... if you have to tell people you are; you aren't.
Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
He who wishes to be obeyed must know how to command.
When the whole world is silent; even one voice becomes powerful.
Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.
A wholesome oblivion of one's neighbours is the beginning of wisdom.
