One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
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.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
