The United States is afraid of China; it is not a military threat to anyone and is the least aggressive of all the major military powers.
Everything that enlarges the sphere of human powers, that shows man he can do what he thought he could not do, is valuable.
I am mindful not only of preserving executive powers for myself, but for predecessors as well.
George W. Bush
The larger the state, the more callous it becomes... the colder its heart. It is also true that the bigger the corporation, the more callous its heart. But unlike the state, corporations have competition and have no police powers.
They are the weakest, however strong, who have no faith in themselves or their own powers.
Christian Nestell Bovee
Black people have always been used as a buffer in this country between powers to prevent class war.
I'm really in touch, whether it's prayer or meditation... there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I've been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people.
Man is a living duty, a depository of powers that he must not leave in a brute state. Man is a wing.
Therefore, I feel convinced that any political picture can be changed to suit the needs of the powers that be.
Today, the Muslim world is the poorest of the global powers.
Take the perspective of a journalist or scientist. Really study what's around you. What are people wearing, what do the interiors of buildings look like, what noises do you hear? If you bring your analytical powers to bear, you can make almost anything interesting.
The human family is at a critical juncture. The world is moving through a great transition. This transition is economic, as the digital revolution advances and as new powers and groups emerge.

In Africa through the 1990s, with notable exceptions in Senegal and Uganda, nearly all the ruling powers denied they had a problem with AIDS.
American strategic doctrine suggests that Mexico is of second-level importance to the United States. It ranks below Japan and Indonesia, Brazil and India, Egypt and Israel, and European powers including Britain, France, and Germany. This is a grave geopolitical miscalculation.

My roles in comedies from 'Austin Powers' to 'Tommy Boy' to 'Wayne's World,' were sort of comedic 'straight man' parts. My character on 'Parks & Recreation' is the comic relief in a comedy. To play a character that appears strictly for laughs is sort of new for me and really fun.

Charles B. Rangel

That type of stuff doesn't happen in the United States. We still have a very functioning and relatively civil society.
We owe the government taxes. We owe our creditors interest. What do these powers owe us?
Anna Deavere Smith
The march of invention has clothed mankind with powers of which a century ago the boldest imagination could not have dreamt.
