‎”There’s an old saying: ‘All power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.’ The more I’ve learned, the less I believe it. Power doesn’t always corrupt. What power always does is reveal. When a guy gets into a position where he doesn’t have to worry anymore, then you see what he wanted to do all along.”
