Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
