Power corrupts! Power changes people!
Power makes people do things they
wouldn't ordinarily do! It's a lot easier
to tear things down than to build up!

Depends on who have the power.

A wise person will always work constructively, in the interest of the
common good, if nothing else then because he knows it will benefit
himself in the long run.

Reminds me btw of something someone had written on a wall where I
lived, many years ago: "Never give the power to those who want it".

Smart animals need a plan! Dumb animals don't! People need a plan
because they're so powerful. Too smart and powerful for their own good.
Living in La-La Never Never Land. In LLNN Land, the only things
on the table are what you put there, and you ignore everything else,
as if it weren't there. But in the Real World, everything is on the table,
at ALL times! For example, waste is not a hot topic for most people,
unless they get constipation or kidney stones. But in the Real World,
waste is just as important as anything else.
