3 Day Quote Challenge, third day

3 Day Quote Challenge

Paul of wwwpalfitness blog has been so kind to nominate my blog for the 3 Day Quote Challenge. Thank you so much for this kind gesture!

Rules: Post three quotes for three consecutive days, and nominate three new bloggers to take on the challenge each day and thank your nominator.

My quote for this third and final day is:

Power is wonderful. Total power is totally wonderful.

Contrary to many other quotes on my blog, this is not a quote with which I agree. I quote it as a warning about how the mindsets of dictators work.

The quote is by Madame Nhu (Trần Lệ Xuân). She was the First Lady of the puppet dictatorship in South Vietnam from 1955 to 1963. She was the wife of Ngô Đình Nhu, brother and secret police boss of dictator Ngô Đình Diệm. A fanatically right-wing Roman Catholic in a mostly Buddhist country, she made the laws conform to religious anti-women rules of ‘decency’; making her the only woman allowed to wear ‘sexy’ clothes. She rejoiced in violent deaths of Buddhists.

My three nominees of today are:

1. Joëlle Jean-Baptiste – Author

2. Denisa Aricescu

3. natycalinescu
