Power Batteries

Famous quotes containing the words power and/or batteries:

    I only wish that ordinary people had an unlimited capacity for doing harm; then they might have an unlimited power for doing good.
    Socrates (469–399 B.C.)

    Postmodernism is, almost by definition, a transitional cusp of social, cultural, economic and ideological history when modernism’s high-minded principles and preoccupations have ceased to function, but before they have been replaced with a totally new system of values. It represents a moment of suspension before the batteries are recharged for the new millennium, an acknowledgment that preceding the future is a strange and hybrid interregnum that might be called the last gasp of the past.
    Gilbert Adair, British author, critic. Sunday Times: Books (London, April 21, 1991)
