17. "But one of the saddest, most deprecating misuses of power is the withholding of love, affirmation, and delight from other people. Few things keep people in line with our wishes more than an attitude of reserve or aloofness.

This puts people on edge, keeps them guessing, and plays on their need for assurance about their worth."

Author: Michael Cunningham
