When The Power Of Love Overcomes The Love Of Power The World Will Know Peace
Jimi Hendrix Quote
When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace; Jimi Hendrix quote about a utopian world free from abuse of power.
In the history of humanity mans thirst for power has never waned for it has been proven to be a path to great wealth and riches.
Unfortunately mans appetite to acquire power has seen unspeakable atrocities taking place to achieve their selfish goals and a great many people have been deceived in order to fulfill various power crazed ambitious plans.
The power of love is a stronger force because it is a universal gift bestowed on all mankind but it is a struggle because as soon as someone gets into a position close to acquiring power they can lose all sense of the rationale of love of their fellow man to achieve their aim.
This is a long road to tread for humanity but the humanist side of people hope and pray that one day the power of love truly will overcome the love of power and the world will at last know true peace.
Although the original illustration was created over 100 years ago and the attire of the gentleman was imaginatively appropriate for that era it still made me think of the 60's hippy movement of love and peace.
The dove has long been a symbol of peace and an outstretched palm has been inferred to show an honest and sincere outlook.
