Famous quotes containing the word power:

    Do thou, then breathe those thoughts into my mind
    By which such virtue may in me be bred
    That in thy holy footsteps I may tread:
    The fetters of my tongue do thou unbind,
    That I may have the power to sing of thee
    And sound thy praises everlastingly
    Michelangelo Buonarroti (1474–1564)
