The Flow of Power

“Power! Did you ever hear of men being asked whether other souls should have power or not? It is born in them. You may dam up the fountain of water, and make it a stagnant marsh, or you may let it run free and do its work; but you cannot say whether it shall be there; it is there. And it will act, if not openly for good, then covertly for evil; but it will act.”    

–Olive Schreiner (a.k.a. Ralph Iron, South African-born Writer and Feminist, 1855-1920)
