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
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Education is the mother of leadership.
