all the years and in everything we do, we have focused most of all on the development
of human capacity, beginning with our own professional staff, and leveraging their

Abu-Ghazaleh - Arab

learn to exercise will power, discipline
one's body and train one's mind.
Ambani - Focus
China is clearly going to be the number
one economic power and it is already full
of potential.. with lots of population and
the buying power increasing by the day.
Arnault - China
The minority has discovered a powerful help
in influencing majorities. It has been found
possible so to mold the mind of the masses
that they will throw their newly gained
strength in the desired direction. In the
present structure of society, this practice
is inevitable. Whatever of social importance
is done today, whether in politics, finance,
manufacture, agriculture, charity, education,
or other fields, must be done with the help
of propaganda. Propaganda is the executive
arm of the invisible government.
Bernays - Propaganda
In some departments of our daily life, in
which we imagine ourselves free agents,
we are ruled by dictators exercising great
Bernays - Ruler
The conscious and intelligent manipulation
of the organized habits and opinions of
the masses is an important element in democratic
society. Those who manipulate this unseen
mechanism of society constitute an invisible
government which is the true ruling power
of our country.
Bernays - Masses
If you do build a great experience, customers
tell each other about that. Word of mouth
is very powerful.
Bezos - Customers
While few judges or prosecutors would be
afraid to exercise their perfectly legitimate
discretion in favour of an ordinary man,
not to mention a minority group member,
most would be terrified to exercise the
same discretion for someone politically,
financially or socially powerful.
Black - Rich
In the past a leader was a boss. Todays
leaders must be partners with their people..
they no longer can lead solely based on
Blanchard - Leadership
I absolutely believe in the power of tithing
and giving back. My own experience about
all the blessings I've had in my life is
that the more I give away, the more that
comes back. That is the way life works,
and that is the way energy works.
Blanchard - Philanthropy
I like the theater, dining and chasing women.
Let me put it this way: I am a single, straight
billionaire in Manhattan. It's like a wet
Bloomberg - Billionaire
When you're in a position where you think
you've got a lot of ego and you might perceive
it as power.. If you're in a position to
make things happen.. that allows you tremendous
opportunities which other people don't have.
Bond - Power
America is an idea, but it's an idea that brings with it some baggage, like
power brings responsibility. It's an idea that brings with it equality, but equality
even though it's the highest calling, is the hardest to reach. The idea that anything
is possible, that's one of the reasons why I'm a fan of America. It's like hey,
look there's the moon up there, let's take a walk on it, bring back a piece of
it. That's the kind of America that I'm a fan of.
The most immediate task is to make certain
that no state or combination of states gains
the capacity to expel the United States
from Eurasia or even to diminish significantly
its decisive arbitration role.
Brzezinski - America
What good is money if it can't inspire terror
in your fellow man?
Burns - Money
The reason visualization is so powerful is because as you create pictures
in your mind of seeing yourself with what it is you want, you are generating thoughts
and feelings of having it now. Visualization is simply powerfully focused thought
in pictures, and it causes equally powerful feelings.
Byrne - Thinking
- Mind -
You are the most powerful magnet in the universe! You contain a magnetic power
within you that is more powerful than anything in this world, and this unfathomable
magnetic power is emitted through your thoughts.
Byrne - Thinking

This war has been motivated by pride or arrogance, by a desire to control oil
wealth, by a desire to implant our programs. (talking about the Iraq war)
Carter - War
We can drift along as though there were still a cold war, wasting hundreds
of billions of dollars on weapons that will never be used, ignoring the problems
of people in this country and around the world, being one of the worst environmental
violators on earth, standing against any sort of viable programs to protect the
world's forests or to cut down on acid rain or the global warming or ozone depletion.
We can ignore human rights violations in other countries, or we can take these
things on as true leaders ought to and accept the inspiring challenge of America
for the future.
Carter - Environmental
Great American power and responsibility are not unprecedented, and have been
used with restraint and great benefit in the past. We have not assumed that super
strength guarantees super wisdom, and we have consistently reached out to the
international community to ensure that our own power and influence are tempered
by the best common judgment.
Carter - Power
People would ask me how I could stand the long campaigning, how I could stand
being charged with the responsibilities of a great nation, one of the most powerful
and difficult jobs in the world. It wasn't any more difficult than picking cotton
all day or shaking peanuts.
Carter - Power
I find myself born into this particular position. I'm determined to make the
most of it. And to do whatever I can to help. And I hope I leave things behind
a little bit better than I found them.
Charles - Power
Business is recognizing the role it can play in combatting climate change.
Thank God, is all I can say, for there is a desperately urgent need for business
to play that role. Your lobbying influence can be substantial, but together, united
and in large enough numbers it could prove decisive in turning the tide.
Charles - Environment
Change - Business
Administration do have moral values. Their
moral values are very explicit: shine the
boots of the rich and the powerful, kick
everybody else in the face, and let your
grandchildren pay for it. That simple principle
predicts almost everything that's happening.
Chomsky - Moral
The dangers of unexamined and unregulated
monopoly power, particularly in the state
executive, are hardly news. The right reaction
is not passive acquiescence.
Chomsky - Monopoly
I mean, what's the elections? You know,
two guys, same background, wealth, political
influence, went to the same elite university,
joined the same secret society where you're
trained to be a ruler - they both can run
because they're financed by the same corporate
Chomsky - Election
Societies - Ruling
It is not that I am not a fan of American
exceptionalism. That is like saying I am
not a fan of the moon being made out of
green cheeseit does not exist. Powerful
states have quite typically considered themselves
to be exceptionally magnificent, and the
United States is no exception to that. The
basis for it is not very substantial to
put it politely.
Chomsky - Statism
States are violent institutions. The government
of any country, including ours, represents
some sort of domestic power structure, and
it's usually violent. States are violent
to the extent that they're powerful, that's
Chomsky - Statism
Remember, the U.S. is a powerful state,
it's not like Libya. If Libya wants to carry
out terrorist acts, they hire Carlos the
Jackal or something. The United States hires
Chomsky - America
If a fox is unable to befriend a tiger,
then the fox should create an illusion of
close association with the tiger by carefully
trailing behind the cat while boasting of
the deep friendship they share. In this
way, he creates an impression that his well
being is of great concern to the tiger.
Chu - Partnership
Wealth is power. With wealth many things
Clason - Money
A warrior of light who trusts too much in
his intelligence will end up underestimating
the power of his opponent.
If we only have great companies, we will
merely have a prosperous society, not a
great one. Economic growth and power are
the means, not the definition, of a great
Collins - Great
The world reacts very strangely to people
they see on TV, and I can begin to understand
how anchor monsters are made. If you're
not careful, you can become used to being
treated as though you're special and begin
to expect it. For a reporter, that's the
kiss of death.
Cooper - Understanding
You would have to say of John
Howard's government that he has tended
to go after things with a fair degree of
determination, and I would have thought..
I don't see any reason why that should suddenly
disappear now that he has control of both
Corrigan - Government
We are not animals. We are not a product of what has happened to us in our
past. We have the power of choice.
