Two major motivations: power and love. Everyone wants to be powerful, and everybody wants to be loved. William Gaddis said, ¨Power doesn’t corrupt people, people corrupt power.¨ Karl Menninger once said about love, ¨Love cures people – both the ones who give it and the ones who receive it.¨ The question is though, which of the two would people prefer if they could have only one? Well now you can see for yourself! The PHS campus had 75 people who voted, and of them, a whopping 63 said they would rather be loved than powerful, whereas 19 chose that they’d rather have power…
“To become truly great, one has to stand with people, not above them.” – Montesquieu
“It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.” – Machiavelli
Happy 2021, everyone!
