“We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.”
William E. Gladstone (UK Prime Minister, 1809 – 1898)
Attributed to Gladstone in The National Elementary Principal, Volume 28, 1948.
Something very similar was attributed by some (I can find no evidence in support) to this man –
William Ellery Channing,
as well as (much later) to Jimi Hendrix and Sri Chinmoy Ghose.
While i can find no evidence of Mr Channing making a similar (and possibly previous quote to the above, as he died in 1842) the man did indeed make a great number of noteworthy quotes such as…
“One of the tremendous evils of the world, is the monstrous accumulation of power in a few hands.”
William Ellery Channing (US Unitarian Preacher, 1780 – 1842)
