The Art of Power

'Our society is founded on a very limited definition of power, namely
wealth, professional success, fame, physical strength, military
might, and political control. My dear friends, I suggest that there
is another kind of power, a greater power: the power to be happy
right in the present moment, free from addiction, fear, despair,
discrimination, anger, and ignorance. This power is the birthright
of every human being, whether celebrated or unknown, rich or poor,
strong or weak....'

--Thich Nhat Hanh, from 'The Art of Power'
