Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
