Words From The Wise

Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.



~ George Orwell

Nineteen Eighty-Four; Part 3, Chapter 3
