We still think of a powerful man as a born leader and a powerful woman as an anomaly.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
I think I'm a natural-born leader. I know how to bow down to authority if it's authority that I respect.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
Some are born leaders, some achieve leadership, and some have leadership thrust upon them. Which of these are you, or would you rather not bother?
Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.
The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure - which is: Try to please everybody.

Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish.
Leaders aren't born they are made.
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born - that there is a genetic factor to leadership. This myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That's nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
The building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality.
Leadership is lifting a person's vision to high sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
