I read this book - well, it's a series, really - that basically says that having power leads to terrible dilemmas. Well, sometimes, at least.
"People without hope not only don't write novels, but what is more to the point, they don't read them.
They don't take long looks at anything, because they lack the courage.
The way to despair is to refuse to have any kind of experience, and the novel, of course, is a way to have experience."
-Flannery O'Connor

"In spite of much that militates against quietness there are people who still read books. They are the people who keep me going."
-Elisabeth Elliot, Preface, "A Chance to Die: The Life and Legacy of Amy Carmichael"

No need, it's in my contract. Bumper of threads, voider of warranties, stealer of souls... I'm totally failing on the last one, too.
