I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
Σοφός ο γνωρίζων χρήσιμα
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση

Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
