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.

Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
