But for one to use power rightly, one must be willing to give space
for as much legitimate freedom as possible. Great harm is done by
those addicted to the use of power, whether it is a dictator molding
a whole country to his image, a parish priest who prefers exercising
control to offering pastoral care, or parents who try to make their
children into copies of themselves.
— Andrew Marr, Living a Mystery (1985, Newsletter of
St. Gregory's Abbey)
