He who has great power should use it lightly.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
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 greatest leaders mobilize others by coalescing people around a shared vision.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
