Power Corrupts II

“When your persona begins to take over […] and becomes more important, you enter a dangerous place. Once you have people around you who don’t question you, you’re in a dangerous place.”

~ Elton John


“Psychologically, the famous are of course the very last people on earth to be well-equipped to deal with what they’re going through. After all, they only became famous because they were wounded, because they had thin skin; because they were in some respects a bit ill. And now, far from compensating them adequately for their disease, fame aggravates it exponentially. … (One of the great signs of good parenting [is] that your child has no desire to be famous).”

~ Philosopher’s Mail
