Persons attempting to find a motive in this narrative will be prosecuted; persons attempting to find a moral in it will be banished; persons attempting to find a plot in it will be shot.

In a completely sane world, madness is the only freedom!
And what is an authentic madman? It is a man who preferred to become mad, in the socially accepted sense of the word, rather than forfeit a certain superior idea of human honor. So society has strangled in its asylums all those it wanted to get rid of or protect itself from, because they refused to become its accomplices in certain great nastinesses. For a madman is also a man whom society did not want to hear and whom it wanted to prevent from uttering certain intolerable truths.
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.
There is no knowledge that is not power.
Power may be at the end of a gun, but sometimes it's also at the end of the shadow or the image of a gun.
The secret to all power is to only do that which all would willingly do.
The whore is despised by the hypocritical world because she has made a realistic assessment of her assets and does not have to rely on fraud to make a living. In an area of human relations where fraud is regular practice between the sexes, her honesty is regarded with a mocking wonder.
So little done, so much to do.
Most people would rather die than think: many do.
An ugly sight, a man who is afraid.
Men are Moved by two levers only: fear and self interest
There is great beauty in going through life without anxiety or fear. Half our fears are baseless, and the other half discreditable.
There is no more defiant denial of one man's ability to possess one woman exclusively than the prostitute who refuses to redeemed.
Punishing the prostitute promotes the rape of all women. When prostitution is a crime, the message conveyed is that women who are sexual are bad, and therefore legitimate victims of sexual assault. Sex becomes a weapon to be used by men.
Nature arms each man with some faculty which enables him to do easily some feat impossible to any other.
Mighty things from small beginnings grow.
Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
Power tires only those who do not have it.
I love power. But it is as an artist that I love it. I love it as a musician loves his violin, to draw out its sounds and chords and harmonies.
Power is my mistress. I have worked too hard at her conquest to allow anyone to take her away from me.
Ten persons who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.
To create power is like a magnet, this is true because this creative power operates like a magnet. Give it a strong clear picture of what you want and this creative power starts to work magnetizing conditions about you -- attracting to you things, resources, opportunities, circumstances and even the people you need, to help bring to pass in your outer life what you have pictured.
Power is the by-product of understanding.
Power is so characteristically calm, that calmness in itself has the aspect of strength.
Those who have been once intoxicated with power, and have derived any kind of emolument from it, even though but for one year, never can willingly abandon it. They may be distressed in the midst of all their power; but they will never look to anything but power for their relief.
You can get more with a kind word and a gun than you can with a kind word alone.
To achieve the mood of a warrior is not a simple matter. It is a revolution. To regard the lion and the water rats and our fellow men as equals is a magnificent act of a warrior's spirit. It takes power to do that.
Iron hand in a velvet glove.
All the power that we exercise over others depends on the power we exercise over ourselves.
Let them hate, so long as they fear.
