No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
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.
