He who has great power should use it lightly.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
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
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
