The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Education is the mother of leadership.
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.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
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.
