A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Έστι δ’ η γνώμη απόφανσις περί των καθόλου και περί όσων αι πράξεις εισί, και αιρετά ή φευκτά εστι προς το πράττειν

A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
