“The measure of a man is what he does with power.”Plato
Being a good person is hard enough. It’s even harder when we occupy positions of authority. That’s because authority gives us leeway to deal with others in whatever way we want, and carry through with punishments of our design. How we execute our power reveals our true values because we had the power to choose otherwise. Yet, adversity and hardship test our values too, and sometimes uncover more of who we really are.
According to Greek philosopher Plato, power reveals a person’s true character.
Adversity and hardship reveal our true character.
