Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
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 don’t lead by hitting people over the head that’s assault, not leadership.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
