The Paradoxes of Life - Power and Vulnerability

I read this somewhere in the past couple of days but I fail to remember the source. It said something I believe in strongly. That true power comes from being vulnerable.

Power is not about rippling muscles and the forts and the guns and swords. It is about what conquers all these - innocence and love. The most powerful man in the world is helpless before a child. The storm rages on unable to uproot the humble sapling. Water gently erodes all that is in its way.

Nothing in the world can affect you it appears, if you accept yourself and your vulnerability. That is true power.
