Where there is no vision, the people perish.
A leader is a dealer in hope.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
