The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
Know or listen to those who know.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
Only the educated are free.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Always desire to learn something useful.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
Well done is better than well said.
If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.
A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
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.
Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked leadership is defined by results not attributes.
I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles but today it means getting along with people.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.
Be careful the environment you choose for it will shape you be careful the friends you choose for you will become like them.
Don't find fault, find a remedy.
