If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.

Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
Education is the mother of leadership.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
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 cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
