Not necessarily. Thoughts, based on no or little knowledge, have no or little 
power. Besides, thoughts by themselves, whether based on real knowledge or 
falsehoods have no power at all until they are applied to either teach or do 
(rightly or wrongly). And then, their power depends on the validity level of 
the knowledge behind them. So, thoughts, by themselves, have no power at all 
-- except, perhaps, the power to edify and awaken, or mislead and delude 
ourselves. (And, when we speak them, do the same for others.:-)
