Famous quotes containing the word powerful:

    It is to be regretted that the rich and powerful too often bend the acts of government to their selfish purposes.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    The atom bomb was no “great decision.”... It was merely another powerful weapon in the arsenal of righteousness.
    Harry S. Truman (1884–1972)

    Justice in the hands of the powerful is merely a governing system like any other. Why call it justice? Let us rather call it injustice, but of a sly effective order, based entirely on cruel knowledge of the resistance of the weak, their capacity for pain, humiliation and misery. Injustice sustained at the exact degree of necessary tension to turn the cogs of the huge machine-for- the-making-of-rich-men, without bursting the boiler.
    Georges Bernanos (1888–1948)
