Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
Education is the mother of leadership.
When I give a minister an order, I leave it to him to find the means to carry it out.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
