Power, Pettiness and Greatness from The Contender

From the movie The Contender with Jeff Bridges, this is the quote for the week:
 
Napoleon once said, when asked to explain the lack of great statesmen in the world… 
                  
that, "to get power… 
                  
you need to display absolute pettiness.

To exercise power, you need to show true greatness."
                  
Such pettiness and such greatness are rarely found in one person.
