Here are some powerful inspiration quotes, how they can motivate you and why/how they are applicable in our daily lives;

1. "Most times, arrogance accompanies strength, and it is wrong to conclude that justice is on the side of the one who is strong. Moral choice must always accompany the use of power" - Theodore Bikel

Motivation/Daily Application of the Quote:

Whether in your family, workplace or in government, you would have one form of power or the other. It is easy to abuse power or use it to oppress others. However, if you replay the quote before you daily (especially the last part...moral choice must always accompany the use of power), it would help you to use power only in a morally acceptable manner. Motivational quotes are powerful in pointing us to the right direction daily.

2. "Don't entrust power without putting a check" - John Adams

Motivation/Daily Application of the Quote:

The abuse of power is inevitable when there is no check put in place by the person who entrusted the power. So, whenever and wherever you are in the position to delegate power, ensure that you spell out the boundaries that must not be exceeded and how the power should be used. 

Often times, when people use power wrongly, the blame goes back to the person or persons who entrusted the power in their hands. This quote is worth replaying in our minds each day - it's a great way to kickstart your life to delegate power rightly.

3. "Always, the jaws of power are opened to devour; and if possible, its arms are always stretched out to destroy freedom of speech and thought and writings" - John Adams

4. "A friend in power is a friend lost" - Henry Brooks Adams

Motivation/Daily Application of the Quote:

5. "Whatever takes you to the Top has to Sustain You when You Get to the Top" - Tunde Bakare
