***********************************************************************

"Power, properly understood is the ability to acheive purpose. It is the
strength required to bring about social, political, or economic changes.
In this sense power is not only desirable but necessary to implement the
demands of love and justice.

One of the greatest problems in history is that concepts of love and power 
are usually contrasted as polar opposites. Love is identified as a 
resignation of power and power with denial of love...

What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and
abusive and that love without power is sentimental and anemic.

Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at
its best is  power correcting everything that stands against love."

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden
flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the
night.

-- H.W. Longfellow
=============================================================

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by
yourself as mighty one; The being thoroughly worn out before you are

feverish selfish little clod of ailments, and grievances complaining that
the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
