To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
Whatever you are, be a good one.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
