I am more afraid of an army of 100 sheep led by a lion than an army of 100 lions led by a sheep.
-Charles Maurice deTalleyrand

A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
-John C. Maxwell

Ultimately, a genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus, but a molder of consensus. I would rather be a man of conviction than a man of conformity.
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Great leaders are never satisfied with current levels of performance. They are relentlessly driven by possibilities and potential achievements.
-Donna Harrison

There are really four types of people: 1) Cop-outs - People who have no goals and do not commit, 2) Hold-outs - People who don't know if they can reach their goals, so they are afraid to commit, 3) Dropouts - People who start toward a goal but quit when the going gets tough, and 4) All-outs - People who set goals, commit to them, and pay the price to meet them.
-John C. Maxwell

Cowardice asks the question, "Is it safe?" Expediency asks the question, "Is it politic?" And vanity comes along and asks the question, "Is it popular?" But conscience asks the question, "Is it right?" And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right.
-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have seen that in any great undertaking, it is not enough for a man to depend simply upon himself.
-Lone Man

We shall all hang together or we shall certainly hang separately.
-Benjamin Franklin

  1. You SO rock with these quotes!! I'm dealing with some "leaders" at school and these really help me stay focused and know that what I'm working toward is not only necessary, but desired. (Even if they don't know it yet!) ;0)

    Thanks, Bro!
