‘If you want to test a person’s characters, give him power’ (Abraham Lincoln)

When I read this quote I thought of another one ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely’. I believe Lincoln’s quote is true, power can either corrupt a person or make them stronger. What way power sways an individual is dependent on said individual’s mental strength and morality.
