Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
Education is the mother of leadership.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
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
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
