Authority quotes and quotations

What you need is sustained outrage...there's far too much unthinking respect given to authority.
Molly Ivins

Power takes as ingratitude the writhing of its victims.
Rabindranath Tagore

You can have power over people as long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power.
Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

There are two kinds of [people] who never amount to much: Those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.
Cyrus H. Curtis

But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
Carl Sagan

Men in authority will always think that criticism of their policies is dangerous. They will always equate their policies with patriotism, and find criticism subversive.
Henry Steele Commager

He who is firmly seated in authority soon learns to think security, and not progress, the highest lesson of statecraft.
James Russell Lowell

The key to successful leadership today is influence, not authority.
Kenneth Blanchard

To do just the opposite is also a form of imitation.
Georg C. Lichtenberg

There are two kinds of people who never amount to much: those who cannot do what they are told, and those who can do nothing else.
Cyrus Curtis

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.
HH the Dalai Lama

In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.
Mark Twain

Anyone who conducts an argument by appealing to authority is not using his intelligence; he is just using his memory.
Leonardo da Vinci

The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority.
Stanley Milgram

Always acknowledge a fault. This will throw those in authority off their guard and give you an opportunity to commit more.
Mark Twain

You do not lead by hitting people over the head - that's assault, not leadership.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
