Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
