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.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
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.
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
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
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.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
