If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
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.
Harry S. Truman
