The Quotable Scorpio

Excerpt from At Work Chapter:

Scorpio BookScorpio Trait: Power-Conscious
Scorpios know where the power is. With an unerring instinct for the power base, you help pull the strings or gradually assume the top spot on your own. The evolved Scorpio recognizes that power must be appropriately managed.

There is a homely adage which runs "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far."
Theodore Roosevelt, born 10/27/1858

The Law is the true embodiment
Of everything that's excellent.
It has no kind of fault or flaw,
And I, my Lords, embody the Law.
W.S. Gilbert, born 11/18/1836 Iolanthe

The thing women have got to learn is that nobody gives you power. You just take it.
Roseanne Barr, born 11/3/1952

I want to see stories where the woman gets to be funny because she's smart, not just a bimbo. Like the real women that we know are. Women in movies generally find power in sexuality, but that's the easiest way to get attention, as opposed to being witty or insightful or challenging.
Actress Meg Ryan, born 11/19/1961

I want to own my own stuff. I want to get into the type of economic power that other ethnic groups have.
Sean Combs, born 11/4/1969

You ask, how has it happened that all Europe has acted on the principle, that "Power was Right" . . . Power always sincerely, conscientiously, de très bon foi, believes itself right . . . Power must never be trusted without a check.
John Adams, born 10/30/1735

I am more and more convinced that man is a dangerous creature; and that power, whether vested in many or a few, is ever grasping, and, like the grave, cries "Give, give!"
U.S. First Lady Abigail Adams, born 11/22/1744

Power is nothing unless you can turn it into influence.
Condoleezza Rice, born 11/14/1954

Scorpio Social Issue: Women's Rights

If I have to, I can do anything. I am strong, I am invincible, I am Woman.
Singer-songwriter Helen Reddy, born 10/25/1941

That . . . man . . . says women can't have as much rights as man, cause Christ wasn't a woman. Where did your Christ come from? . . . From God and a woman. Man had nothing to do with him.
Sojourner Truth, born 11/18/1797

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women are created equal.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton, born 11/12/1815
