Quote of the Day
August 22
Remember the difference between a boss and a leader:
a boss says "Go!" and a leader says, "Let's go!"
(E.M. Kelly)
August 29
It is important that people know what you stand for. It is equally important that they know what you won't stand for. (Mary Waldrop)
Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something. (Henry David Thoreau)
September 12
Leadership should be born out of the understanding of the needs of those who would be affected by it. (Marian Anderson)
September 19
Of all the will toward the ideal in mankind only a small part can manifest itself in public action. All the rest of this force must be content with small and obscure deeds. The sum of these, however, is a thousand times stronger than the acts of those who receive wide public recognition. The latter, compared to the former, are like the foam on the waves of a deep ocean. (Albert Schweitzer)
September 26
Real leaders are ordinary people with extraordinary determination. (Anonymous)
October 3
Blessed are those who have nothing to say, and cannot be persuaded to say it. (James Russell Lowell)
October 10
Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success. (Henry Ford)
October 17
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or get all the credit for doing it. (Andrew Carnegie)
The first method for estimating the intelligence of rulers is to look at the people the rulers have around them. (Niccolo Machiavelli)
October 24
If you can't convince them, confuse them. (Harry Truman)
October 31
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know, the only ones among you who will really be happy are those who have sought and found how to serve. (Albert Schweitzer)
November 7
Insanity is continuing to do the same thing and expecting a different result. (Albert Einstein)
November 14
When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion. (Ethiopian Proverb)
November 21
You must be the change you want to see in the world. (Mahatma Gandhi)
November 28
Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home - so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person: the neighborhood she lives in; the school or college she attends; the factory, farm, or office where she works. ... Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world. (Eleanor Roosevelt)
