It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
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 most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
There are three essentials to leadership: humility, clarity and courage.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
