I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
Γνώμαι σοφών αρετήν πλουτίζουσιν
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
Σοφός ο γνωρίζων χρήσιμα
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
