Also, by the word "power" I mean the type of power that kings hold (possibly a political type of power? help me out here). Im not talking about physical "man power" or electricity type of power.

Hi Mitch.

The world is mine = Ο κόσμος είναι δικός μου or
                             Δικός μου είναι ο κόσμος or
                             Eίμαι ο κυρίαρχος/άρχοντας του κόσμου (I am dominating/ruling the world)

Honour = τιμή, υπόληψη, διάκριση
Power = ισχύς, δύναμη
Respect = σεβασμός, σέβας, υπόληψη

Here's my simplified approach:

The world is mine = Ο κόσμος είναι δικός μου or Ο κόσμος μού ανήκει (The world belongs to me)

(Είμαι ο κυρίαρχος του κόσμου or Είμαι ο άρχοντας του κόσμου --I'm the master or I'm the ruler of the world-- have too many Verne or Titanic connotations for my taste.)

Honour = Τιμή
Power = Εξουσία (the sort of power you wield)
Respect = any of the three mentioned by wings

I am satisfied with your Verne connotation, but why Titanic? The latter is awful for my taste, too. :-)

I was reminded of "I'm the king of the world" that DiCaprio shouted standing on the prow of the ship and then the director, James Cameron, repeated at the Oscars...

Lovely face (DiCaprio's) but I really don't want to remember this film... too melodramatic for my taste...
