Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.

Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
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
If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
