To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
The greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
You don’t need a title to be a leader.
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
