The Importance of Power

Found this beautiful thought about power on page 18 of Writing a Woman’s Life by Carolyn G. Heilbrun.

“Power is the ability to take one’s place in whatever discourse is essential to action and the right to have one’s part matter.  This is true in the Pentagon, in marriage, in friendship, and in politics.”

2012 seems like a wonderful time to reflect on our individual and collective power and the individual and collective power we accord all.
