The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
Earn your leadership every day.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
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.
