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.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
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.
