Leaders Quotes

Lao Tse

Henry Miller

A real leader faces the music, even when he doesn't like the tune.

Anon

As leaders shift their focus to customers and quality, they realize that the old authoritarian leadership style does not work anymore. To achieve quality, service, and rapid response, leaders must utilize all available talent. They must find ways to inspire, involve, and empower employees. They must create a work environment that encourages commitment, innovation, and cooperation. Instead of evaluating, leaders now coach. Instead of doing, they delegate. Instead of telling, they facilitate. No one is expected to boss anyone. Everyone is expected to participate.

Dr. Suzanne Willis Zoglio

Where are they now that we, the men whom they sent off to war, have returned? These are commanders who have deserted their troops, and there is no more serious crime in the law of war. The Army says they never leave their wounded. The Marines say they never leave even their dead. These men have left all the casualties and retreated behind a pious shield of public rectitude. They have left the real stuff of their reputation bleaching behind them in the sun in this country.

Senator John Kerry

Our Founding Fathers would shudder to see how easily forces outside the mainstream now seem to effortlessly push some Senate leaders toward conduct the American people don't want from their elected leaders: Abusing power. Inserting the government into our private lives. Injecting religion into debates about public policy. Jumping through hoops to ingratiate themselves to their partys base, while step by step, day by day, real problems that keep American families up at night fall by the wayside here in Washington.

Senator John Kerry

Weve been around for 500 years and never shut up, much less to a monarch. The king is the head of state just like me. The only difference is I\'ve been elected three times with 63 per cent. We are equal as heads of state, be it the leader of the Indian State Evo Morales or King Juan Carlos of Spain.

Hugo Chavez

John C. Maxwell

Albert Camus

Ayn Rand

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

Lao Tzu

People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader leads, and the boss drives.

Theodore Roosevelt

Elected leaders who forget how they got there won't the next time.

Malcolm Forbes

Leaders should lead as far as they can and then vanish. Their ashes should not choke the fire they have lit.
