TOP 10 LEADERSHIP QUOTES – PATH TO LIFE SUCCESS
“Paths Toward Personal Progress: Leaders Are Made, Not Born.”
Harvard Business Review
“Education is the mother of leadership.”
“The test of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.”
“If the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
New Testament, Matthew, XV, 14
“Give a man integrity, common sense, and a sense of humor, and he has in him the main essentials necessary for leadership.”
Charles Reynolds Brown
“Nothing is more difficult to explain than the knack of leadership. But it’s very easy to demonstrate. Place a 6-inch piece of string on top of your desk. Take hold of the back end of that string, and try to push it across the top of the desk. No luck? Now grab the front end and pull it. That’s Leadership!”
“The greatest asset in leadership is courage. Cowards never lead. Leadership requires great patience. No one will follow an irritable or impatient leader. Leadership requires tact, fairness and confidence. One man can’t lead another who distrusts his leadership. Many other things are important — but these things are imperative.”
George Matthew Adams
“Few people are born Leaders. Leadership is achieved by ability, alertness, experience and keeping posted; by willingness to accept responsibility; a knack of getting along with people; an open mind, and a head that stays clear under stress.”
“Conductors of great symphony orchestras do not play every musical instrument; yet through leadership the ultimate production is an expressive and unified combination of tones.”
Thomas D. Bailey
“The day was cold and bleak. Washington, starting out from his headquarters, drew on his great coat, turned up the collar and pulled his hat down to shield his face from the biting wind. As he walked down the road to where the soldiers were fortifying a camp, no one would have known that the tall, muffled figure was the commander-in-chief of the army.
As he came near the camp he stopped to watch a small company of soldiers, who, under command of a corporal, were building a breast-work of logs. The men were tugging at a heavy log; the corporal, important and superior, stood at one side giving orders.
“Up with it!” he cried. “Now altogether! Push! Up with it, I say! Now!” The men gathered new strength.
A great push altogether, and the log was nearly in its place, but it was too heavy, and just before it reached the top of the pile it slipped and fell back.
The corporal shouted again. “Up with it, now! What ails you? Up with it, I say!”
The men tugged and strained again; the log nearly reached the top, slipped, and once more rolled back.
“Heave hard!” cried the corporal. “One, two, three! Now all together! Push!”
Another struggle, and then, just as the log was about to roll back for the third time, Washington ran forward, pushed with all his strength, and the log rolled into place on top of the breastwork. The men, panting and perspiring, sought eagerly to thank him, but he turned toward the corporal.
“Why don’t you help your men with this heavy lifting, when they need another hand?” he asked.
“Why don’t I?” asked the man. “Don’t you see I am a corporal?”
“Indeed!” replied Washington, throwing open his great coat and showing his uniform. “I am only the commander-in-chief. Next time you have a log too heavy for your men to lift, send for me!“
