You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
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
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί

The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
