Leaders Quotes

A leader who doesn't hesitate before he sends his nation into battle is not fit to be a leader.

Golda Meir

Leaders need to be optimists. Their vision is beyond the present.

Rudy Giuliani

A good leader is a person who takes a little more than his share of the blame and a little less than his share of the credit.

John C. Maxwell

Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them.

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


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

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

Conrad Hilton

To lead the people, walk behind them.

Lao Tzu

Leaders keep their eyes on the horizon, not just on the bottom line.

Warren G. Bennis

We need leaders who will stand up for the little guy and listen once again.

Sarah Palin

Cruel leaders are replaced only to have new leaders turn cruel.

Che Guevara

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
