In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
Ρήμα παράκαιρον τον όλον ανατρέπει βίον
Μένανδρος (Γνωμ. Μον.)
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
