Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
He who has great power should use it lightly.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
