Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.

Colin Powell

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.


The man who commands efficiently must have obeyed others in the past, and the man who obeys dutifully is worthy of being some day a commander.

Cornelius Tactius

Forethought and prudence are the proper qualities of a leader.

Jane Francis de Chantal

I have considered all methods of governing and I have finally seen that the best is that which is amiable, sincere, humble, and patient.

Dwight Eisenhower

You don’t lead by hitting people over the head—that’s assault, not leadership.

Latin Proverb

It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.

Dwight Eisenhower

Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.


He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.

Napoleon Bonaparte

A leader is a dealer in hope.

Joe Namath, NFL Quarterback

To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn’t know where he’s going.

Thomas à Kempis

No man commands safely unless he has learned well how to obey.

Kenyan Proverb

He who refuses to obey cannot command.

John Quincy Adams

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

Mother Teresa

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
