Edward de Bono
The human body experiences a powerful gravitational pull in the direction of hope. That is why the patient's hopes are the physician's secret weapon. They are the hidden ingredients in any prescription.
Negative attitude is nine times more powerful than positive attitude.
The most powerful men were those who most effectively used the power of adult competence to enforce childish agreements.
George W. S. Trow
A powerful idea communicates some of its strength to him who challenges it.
Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
I live in America. I have the right to write whatever I want. And it's equaled by another right just as powerful: the right not to read it. Freedom of speech includes the freedom to offend people.
Peer pressure and social norms are powerful influences on behaviour, and they are classic excuses.
There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow.
Orison Swett Marden
The most powerful force ever known on this planet is human cooperation - a force for construction and destruction.

Know your priorities and identify the five powerful action steps that you intend to take to move your initiatives forward each day. If you go to a tree with an ax and take five whacks at the tree every day, it doesn't matter if it's an oak or a redwood; eventually, the tree has to fall down.
The fact that political ideologies are tangible realities is not a proof of their vitally necessary character. The bubonic plague was an extraordinarily powerful social reality, but no one would have regarded it as vitally necessary.
Ideas are powerful because they allow us to see the world as it could be, rather than what it is.
I believe America is the most powerful country in the world and is a country that stands on principle.

It must reject humiliation.
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia

P. J. O'Rourke
The atom bomb was no 'great decision.' It was merely another powerful weapon in the arsenal of righteousness.
Harry S Truman
I'm in awe of the universe, but I don't necessarily believe there's an intelligence or agent behind it.

The incense is powerful and provocative, whether Buddhist or Catholic.
The most powerful weapon in the world, as far as I'm concerned, is the camera.

There is no celebrity quite as powerful as the local, homegrown celebrity.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
