Power and Love
Anita Sharpe on Making a Difference

Our latest issue, which hits the newsstands on April 4, features a package on what power means today. Lots of great thinkers provocatively weigh in on the topic. I just ran across this wonderful quote from Martin Luther King Jr. (wish we'd had it for the package):

'Personal power, properly understood, is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. There is nothing wrong with power if used correctly. One of the great problems of history is that the concepts of love and power have usually been contrasted as opposites -- polar opposites -- so that love is identified with resignation of power, and power with denial of love. What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic.'

I can't wait to have my hands on the next issue, especially the article on the five green-building pioneers. April 4th can't get here fast enough.
