When all you can do is pretend to read that unfinished book of yours with that goddamn bad habit you cannot quit, and revisit how you lost those little battles that you fought, wishing for more battles to happen, so that someday you can know what it’s like to win.

The statement, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”, was made by John Emerich Edward Dahlberg Acton, also known as Lord Acton, a British historian of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It was a clear observation by Acton that a person’s morality lessens as his or her power increases. Power is simply defined as the ability to make choices or influence outcomes, which is also power held by a person or group of people in a society.
