The Power of Choice

…power is the fundamental ingredient of the human experience. Every action in life, every thought, every choice we make-even down to what we wear and whether we are seated in first class or coach-represents a negotiation of power that we engage in somewhere on the scale of the power that constitutes life. Power expresses itself as the psychic force of which you are most aware: who has it, who doesn’t have it, what type of power you are dealing with, what type you want-and what you have to do to get what you want. –Caroline Myss, Defy Gravity
