Some words to mull over...
The web of our life is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together.
Oh what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive.
-Sir Walter Scott
The bird, a nest; the spider, a web; man, friendship.
He is most powerful who has power over himself.
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.
The secret of power is the knowledge that others are more cowardly than you are.
