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.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
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 leader is a dealer in hope.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
