Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση
