To be honest, no. But I'm pretty sure I have it at home somewhere. My dad taped it off the tv years ago because he and mum love it, been meaning to give it back to him, got mixed up with my vids you see.

You heard the expression “with great power comes great responsibility" but who said it?  [^]
 

I have heard this for a LONG time. My memory, alway a litle faulty, seems to recall Marcus Arelius in his "Meditations" as the source. BUT, to date this is what I have found so far.

FROM: http://wheezersociety.blogs.com/wheezer/2005/10/with_great_powe.html

"The quote, "With great power comes great responsibility." was used in the Spiderman 2 movie and has been bantered about in different variations. In a recent blog post, comic guru Mark Evanier asked the question, "Can someone give me an answer? And if you're saying it was a known quote before that, could we have a source, please?" He received dozens of answers and even more 'sources' of the quote. The answer that comes nearest to being believable is the explanation from Earl Wells, who wrote, "As far as I know, the quote that comes closest to the line in the Spider-Man story is from a speech that FDR was going to deliver at the Jefferson Day Dinner in 1945; he died the day before: "Today we have learned in the agony of war that great power involves great responsibility." (From Nothing to Fear, ed. by Ben D. Zevin, p. 464 of the 1961 Popular Library paperback; the book was originally published in 1946 by the World Publishing Company.)"

It's interesting that FDR, as well as most politicians didn't write his own speeches, so it likely a speech writer crafted the words. Which is ironic since that is what writers do for movies, television and - gee, politicians today. Craft their words. Just ask my friend Bryce Zabel. He's a movie and television writer."
