Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
