Howie, did you turn off the power at your house?
In my account of Helen last year, I mentioned several instances where she seemed to have called into use an inexplicable mental faculty; but it now seems to me, after carefully considering the matter, that this power may be explained by her perfect familiarity with the muscular variations of those with whom she comes into contact, caused by their emotions.

"The earth," he adds elsewhere, "especially if fresh, has a certain magnetism in it, by which it attracts the salt, power, or virtue (call it either) which gives it life, and is the logic of all the labor and stir we keep about it, to sustain us; all dungings and other sordid temperings being but the vicars succedaneous to this improvement."
If the purpose of history be to give a description of the movement of humanity and of the peoples, the first question--in the absence of a reply to which all the rest will be incomprehensible--is: what is the power that moves peoples?
"The means are... the balance of power in Europe and the rights of the people," the abbe was saying.
Kutuzov alone used all his power (and such power is very limited in the case of any commander-in-chief) to prevent an attack.

At times Miss Keller seemed to lack flexibility, her thoughts ran in set phrases which she seemed to have no power to revise or turn over in new ways.
It would seem that having rejected the belief of the ancients in man's subjection to the Deity and in a predetermined aim toward which nations are led, modern history should study not the manifestations of power but the causes that produce it.
That is, power is power: in other words, power is a word the meaning of which we do not understand.
"The power is in your hands," Dron rejoined sadly.
If Prince Andrew heard that I was in the power of the French!
If instead of a divine power some other force has appeared, it should be explained in what this new force consists, for the whole interest of history lies precisely in that force.
A few hours later, Quinn would set the power source to the time and location, not informing Howie.
Morally the wielder of power appears to cause the event; physically it is those who submit to the power.
What power governs all?
Recognizing the falsity of this view of history, another set of historians say that power rests on a conditional delegation of the will of the people to their rulers, and that historical leaders have power only conditionally on carrying out the program that the will of the people has by tacit agreement prescribed to them.
He knew he was in these men's power, that only by force had they brought him there, that force alone gave them the right to demand answers to their questions, and that the sole object of that assembly was to inculpate him.

And experience tells us that power is not merely a word but an actually existing phenomenon.
The historians, in accord with the old habit of acknowledging divine intervention in human affairs, want to see the cause of events in the expression of the will of someone endowed with power, but that supposition is not confirmed either by reason or by experience.

Whether the preservation of my father's house in Moscow, or the glory of the Russian arms, or the prosperity of the Petersburg and other universities, or the freedom of Poland or the greatness of Russia, or the balance of power in Europe, or a certain kind of European culture called "progress" appear to me to be good or bad, I must admit that besides these things the action of every historic character has other more general purposes inaccessible to me.
Power, from the standpoint of experience, is merely the relation that exists between the expression of someone's will and the execution of that will by others.
(1) Power is the relation of a given person to other individuals, in which the more this person expresses opinions, predictions, and justifications of the collective action that is performed, the less is his participation in that action.

In describing a war or the subjugation of a people, a general historian looks for the cause of the event not in the power of one man, but in the interaction of many persons connected with the event.
According to this view the power of historical personages, represented as the product of many forces, can no longer, it would seem, be regarded as a force that itself produces events.
In their exposition, an historic character is first the product of his time, and his power only the resultant of various forces, and then his power is itself a force producing events.
But Napoleon's power suppressed the ideas of the Revolution and the general temper of the age.
And in the same way the universal historians sometimes, when it pleases them and fits in with their theory, say that power is the result of events, and sometimes, when they want to prove something else, say that power produces events.
But not to speak of the intrinsic quality of histories of this kind (which may possibly even be of use to someone for something) the histories of culture, to which all general histories tend more and more to approximate, are significant from the fact that after seriously and minutely examining various religious, philosophic, and political doctrines as causes of events, as soon as they have to describe an actual historic event such as the campaign of 1812 for instance, they involuntarily describe it as resulting from an exercise of power--and say plainly that that was the result of Napoleon's will.
He had the power and so what he ordered was done.
This reply is quite satisfactory if we believe that the power was given him by God.
And that is how power is understood by the science of jurisprudence, that exchange bank of history which offers to exchange history's understanding of power for true gold.
Power is the collective will of the people transferred, by expressed or tacit consent, to their chosen rulers.
In the domain of jurisprudence, which consists of discussions of how a state and power might be arranged were it possible for all that to be arranged, it is all very clear; but when applied to history that definition of power needs explanation.
The science of jurisprudence regards the state and power as the ancients regarded fire--namely, as something existing absolutely.
From this fundamental difference between the view held by history and that held by jurisprudence, it follows that jurisprudence can tell minutely how in its opinion power should be constituted and what power-- existing immutably outside time--is, but to history's questions about the meaning of the mutations of power in time it can answer nothing.
Not to speak of the fact that no description of the collective activity of men can do without the conception of power, the existence of power is proved both by history and by observing contemporary events.

Then he went on to say that he knew her parents would not give her to him--for this there were secret reasons he could reveal only to her--but that if she loved him she need only say the word yes, and no human power could hinder their bliss.
The historian evidently decomposes Alexander's power into the components: Talleyrand, Chateaubriand, and the rest--but the sum of the components, that is, the interactions of Chateaubriand, Talleyrand, Madame de Stael, and the others, evidently does not equal the resultant, namely the phenomenon of millions of Frenchmen submitting to the Bourbons.

I know one way to return your power to you.
The ancient megalith pulsed with power older than that of her father's.
The power beckoned to her, and she obeyed.
She closed her eyes to the gentle flow and strange sensations: Jule's warmth, her father's hot-cold rain, the ancient power of the ruins.
Yully followed more slowly, enjoying the feeling of the power moving through her.
Yully steadied her breathing and obeyed, taking comfort in the power of the site.
The power pushed her off balance, and she caught herself before it sent her sprawling into the blood pooled around her.
The site's power comforted her, and she kissed Jule's medallion.
The sky began to dim, and she played with the magic, adrenaline speeding the power's flow through her.

As my mate, you are able to use a limited amount of my power, he explained.
He was using the truth to hammer down her resistance and his power to seduce her.
Yes. It didn't hurt he's old enough that he's had time to build his power as well.
As I learned, my deals hold the same power of enforcement as his.
Maybe I shouldn't be, but I'm glad Darkyn stripped her power.
You reek of Darkyn's power.
She was beyond terrified of the power Darkyn held.

We are at the bottom now, hated by all, without the resources of power to which we were accustomed.

"If I win the deal, will you return my power?" she asked, face flushed.
She was about to summon a spell to clear the sidewalk completely when she recalled she wasn't able to use her power anymore.
Without her power, she wasn't able to sense him or the danger he posed.
"Word on the street is that Darkyn took your power," the other said with a toothy grin.
She found herself reaching for her power again, only to find it gone.
Her Gabriel, who spent his life a part of the shadows, radiated the quiet power of a deity that reached her from across the room.
She gave up her power, her domain, and her entire life for this opportunity.
The half-demon rippled with power.
A small pulse of power, and the man dropped.
It was the sign it was time to resign, for her power was nearly gone.
With the power of Hell behind him, Darkyn could raise an Army of Souls to wipe out the mortal realm.
The only thing I didn't count on was Darkyn giving me the choice of my power or Gabriel when I left Hell.
I even gave up my power, my domain, everything.
It was his secret power, the one few others knew about.
She's completely enamored by you and has no power, so she poses no danger.
How had she never noticed his subtle power before?
The chain-of-events had unfolded the way she planned, except that Gabriel didn't fall into her lap, and she had lost all her power in the process.
Deidre shifted, aware again that she was now defenseless against the creatures that used to either fear her or at least, respect her power.
It was a sign that her power was weakening, just like the cracking of the sky in the underworld's dome.

Dark power surged around him.
Gabriel summoned her with enough power that she wasn't able to ignore him, even if she was upset.
If I have no power, my mate is defenseless.
You come in without power.
"You traverse my domain without power," the demon lord countered.
Of course he was going to do everything in his power to stay alive.
He'd hoped to be granted the same level of power as his predecessor.
Sensing the pulse of power, Rhyn whirled from the far side.
Gabe sensed some sort of Immortal power.
Darkyn's quiet power was more like Fate's.
The softness of her body combined with the power of their bond jarred him.
He was putting himself at her mercy again, except that, this time, he had the power and chose not to use it.
Jared bowed his head and fled, well aware of the power of the demon lord's fury.
Deidre dug through her purse as she walked and pulled out her cell, thrilled to see she had battery power.
The little girl pushed the pages until satisfied, and Deidre didn't have the mental power to tell her it wasn't normal to start mid-book.
Controlling a deity would bring incredible power to the demon lord at a time when Rhyn was struggling to battle demons already.
Though the power of mind manipulation was far from brain surgery, he might also know how to help Deidre.
Green power flowed from the souls in the lake, through him and into the gem.
He'd been ignoring the extent of the power available from the souls for fear of violating the Code, which he now understood was not binding in the face of a threat like Darkyn.
The souls were barely glimmering; there was no way he'd be able to pull the amount of power he needed to save Deidre.
Gabe knew he must look half-wild: drenched, muddied and sizzling with power.
Soul power rippled through him and with it, the sensation of the invisible shackles he'd worn his entire adult life melting away.
This time, she sensed restrained power of a different kind.
The power of an Ancient is beyond anything humans can understand.
When the sand is gone, I'll make him dead-dead, unless he can learn to control his power and to work with his brothers.
Rhyn felt Hell's and Sasha's power roll over him like a boulder in a river.
So you give me my power back but don't free me.
They gazed at each other for a long moment, her shock and exhaustion too deep to fear the man who radiated power and control, even in a simple T-shirt.
If this woman gives you the power to do so…
Mortals need the power of reason to deal with us.
Used my newfound power to steal a key from some robed freak.
Ully found out Kris can use your power to make him immune from the other Ancients.
His power felt the same, but maybe his time in Hell had mellowed it out, made it more responsive to his command.
It was said two of them turned on the others, aligned with evil, and only Andre had the power to kill any of the others.
I killed over a hundred of Sasha's creatures at the Arch with only a fraction of my power.
over a supermodel was softened by the rationale that he would also innately recognize his intended mate, even if he didn't recognize her ability to help him control his power.
You don't have the power to offer me that.
Have you learned some control of that demon power, little brother?
Or maybe to his own desire for power.
Because of her, you can control and channel your power.
She was the only one who had the power to end this before he died.
Its back reached her shoulder, and it moved with restrained, lethal power.
Rhyn.s warm power filled her as she drew on their bond as mates, and the portal opened.
She needed a quiet, safe place where she could channel Rhyn.s power to call forth a portal.
Rhyn tossed the demon against the wall with enough power to break its back.
Most who challenged him soon learned just how wild and deep his power ran.
He didn.t attack, simply let his cold power loose into her for a long moment before releasing her.
Even in death, he holds power.
You know, Gabe, even though we.re no longer bound, I can still control my power.
He radiated the kind of quiet power Gabriel did.
He sat up, bloodied and lightheaded, unable to quell the power roiling through him.
He didn.t remember his power being so strong.
Rhyn.s head spun with power and emotion.
Pain rippled through him and another wave of power radiated off him, turning the boulders nearby into powder.
He staggered back, unable to control the power within him.
"That.s some serious power," he said.
Unsettled by the display of power, she started to skirt away.
Part of him knew the Council was stalling him for that reason, though whether they did so to hinder his efforts or to maintain the appearance of their power over him, he wasn't sure.
One hundred years ago the stream was damned by the Ouray Electric Power and Light Company.
"She was answering to a higher power," Effie added.
It's always changing but it has great holding power.
While stroking her hair, he spoke softly, "My name is Jackson Parrish, and as God is my witness, I will do all in my power to correct this situation."
With this fortification, Victor will have no power over you.
The power ended up to be hardly worth the aggravation.
I will do everything in my power to help you be the queen of cool.
"How are the power grids holding up?" he asked, gaze shifting to the screens around them.
The road edged a thatch of forest past the water treatment plant and the power plant, and circled the central command hub in which she worked before leading to the main entrance of the compound.
I'm disabling the power.
This hospital is the only thing in a day's walk with power.
They were all over six feet, all engineered for power, agility, and endurance.
She took some solace in knowing he had the power to protect her.
The era of fractured power and corruption is about to end.
Tim had been prepared for this day by two generations of ambitious men who intended to see someone of their bloodline in the seat of power.
Brady didn't care for power, which was why he'd always gotten along with Tim.
For now, just the hospital has power.
Nothing in the town would be standing, because the elite hoarded power and anything that would give them influence.
It was the size of a greencar—large enough to power the town.
She set it on top of the control panel and assessed the results, then activated the generator's artificial intelligence so it would adjust as needed to power the town.
The sats would be on backup power right now, eliminating her chance of communicating without drawing the fire of the missiles.
His power spun through him, but it was nothing compared to what he would feel without the two buffers.
As hard as he tried, he had no control over his power without the buffers.
He's about to lead my demons to the underworld. With the Immortals in disarray and Death's … mistake, I can own the underworld before Rhyn can control his power enough to stop me.
He was freezing and drenched. He tested his power and found it wasn't just calm – it was bound. He couldn't access its depths, couldn't call upon a portal to send the damn angel home.
Rhyn focused the little bit of magic he had remaining on the wood. Fire sprang up. With it, Rhyn felt a stitch of the seam binding his power snap.
"One favor from a deity of unimaginable power," she said.
Rhyn clenched his fists. Darkyn said nothing else and walked away, disappearing into the morning shadows of the forest. Rhyn felt fevered. His power was leaking out of his body, killing the plants around him. He grappled to control what he could, aware he would soon not have that option.
Toby was silent, knowing a normal Immortal could never understand. He didn't yet have the full power of a real guardian angel, but he should've been able to do more than … nothing. Angels were placed with human mothers so they could understand the creatures they were meant to take care of. Human mothers raised them as their own, yet none of his human mothers had gone to the extent Katie did to try to protect him.
A tingle of alarm went through Rhyn, but his head was too heavy for him to process it. Instead, he focused hard on containing the power within him. When he felt he wouldn't explode, he looked around. Darkyn had claimed Kris's library and stood near a pane of windows overlooking the snowy Alps.
You have the power.
Power I can't control.
Rhyn glanced around, not noticing his head had cleared and his magic was contained until Darkyn pointed it out. Anger at Death – not power – made his blood boil. You are half-demon.
Not for me, not with the power I have. Besides, Death promised to return Katie to me after four days and lied.
"The underworld sucks much of our power out, like Hell," the death-dealer said.
Katie had stabilized Rhyn, allowed the half-demon to use his power and join the rest of the Immortals.
Feels like our power is gone. I tried to open a portal and couldn't.
Kris didn't answer, not wanting to think of how that conversation would go with the deity. He tested his power again. Kiki was right; they had none.
She'd never seen anything like it, a combination of power, agility and fire.
Gabriel fell quiet for a moment, looking around with a frown. Death's palace felt much like Hell had to Rhyn. Something about it tugged at his power.
As Darkyn had said, the underworld tempered his Immortal magic, but Rhyn felt the demon power broiling behind the constraints, seeking a way out of him. He was sticking to his plan, though he no longer had time to find Death.
He knelt on the ground and closed his eyes, seeking out the writhing darkness of his demon side. If the demons had the power to transform and fly, he could access his demon powers, too, even if the Immortal side of him was bound by Death's underworld. "Berries," Toby commanded the tree before him.
Instinctively, he reached for his power, only to find it bound by the magic of the underworld. He was as helpless as a stupid human.
He ran as fast as he could through the unfriendly forest, cursing Death for stripping his power.
We can do more good by engaging Death from some place other than where she has absolute power. She has no reason to negotiate with us.
