This is a pretty famous statement. It works ib different stories too like say Macbeth. Basically, in animal Farm, once Napoleon tasted power, he needed more. Power can corrupt the soul and absolute power can push one into some sinister places. Once Napoleon had no competition and all animals were terrified of him, he indulged in his darkest desires. Orwell felt that without checks and balances people naturally gravitate towards corruption.
