What's power? [Varys to Tyrion, from "A clash of kings"] - George R.R. Martin

This quote was added by minoranza
Power is a curious thing, my lord. Some say knowledge is power. Some tell us that all power comes from the gods. Others say it derives from law. Yet that day on the steps of Baelor's Sept, our godly High Septon and the lawful Queen Regent and your ever-so-knowledgeable servant were as powerless as any cobbler in the crowd. Power resides where men believe it resides. No more and no less. It's a shadow on the wall, yet shadows can kill. And ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow.
