As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
