Before we acquire great power we must acquire wisdom to use it well.
— RALPH WALDO EMERSON :
Wisdom isn’t prerequisite for a temporal power that can be obtained by any Tom, Dick, and Harry. Greatness of mind and greatness of character, however, are the necessary ingredients that must be secured antequam quicquam aliud or before anything else, for someone wishing to blast his way off to great power.
— ALEX P. VIDAL
