It says in the Mirror of Galadriel:
I very much doubt that Galadriel would not be dark, for the Rings power corrupts its wearer and/or bearer, as it did to Frodo and Isildur and Smeagol. I also doubt she would have been stronger than the foundations of the earth too. Sauron was a Maia and she was an elf, and Sauron wasn't stronger than the foundations of the earth, but he was stronger (if he had the Ring) than Galadriel would have been with the Ring in her possession. Now, what would she have done with the One Ring? My belief is she would become Dark Lord III and be nearly as terrible as Sauron, yet not as much. Any opinions?"And now at last it comes. You will give me the Ring freely! In the place of a Dark Lord you will set up a Queen. And I shall not be dark, but beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night! Fair as the Sea and the Sun and the Lightning! Stronger than the foundations of the earth. All shall love me and despair!"
