It's a quote by Jimi Hendrix isn't it?
Well that's his words and the one I prefer to quote, so you are right really. It was said before him though:
The quote, "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace," seems invariably to be attributed to Jimi Hendrix.
However, William Gladstone once said (prior to Hendrix): "We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace." ( William Gladstone 1809-1898)
In addition, at around the same time that Jimi Hendrix said his words, Sri Chinmoy Ghose said, "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, then there will be true peace."
While Jimi Hendrix may have been inspired by/influenced by the quotes of the others, the words "When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace" appear to be his own (or at least his own spin on theirs).

coffey: When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
Haha, thanks for noticing, I fully believe that to be true.
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.
The sprightly piglet leapt into action after it spotted the helpless young buck struggling to make it to dry land. Letting out a loud shriek, the distressed animal appeared to have trapped one of its hooves after wandering into the water at a children's zoo. However help was quickly at hand as the brave pig jumped into the water before paddling over to the goat and pushing it to safety.
