A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
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.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
The supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
Το λακωνίζειν εστί φιλοσοφείν
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
