“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 them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.” — Colin Powell
You can never stop and as older people, we have to learn how to take leadership from the youth and I guess I would say that this is what I’m attempting to do right now.
– Angela Davis
“As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” – Bill Gates
“Real leaders are not blinded by the trappings of power but recognize their role as servant.” — Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Young people are fitter to invent than to judge; fitter for execution than for counsel; and more fit for new projects than for settled business.
— Francis Bacon
We should take care, in inculcating patriotism into our boys and girls, that is a patriotism above the narrow sentiment which usually stops at one’s country, and thus inspires jealousy and enmity in dealing with others… Our patriotism should be of the wider, nobler kind which recognizes justice and reasonableness in the claims of others and which lead our country into comradeship with…the other nations of the world. The first step to this end is to develop peace and goodwill within our borders, by training our youth of both sexes to its practice as their habit of life, so that the jealousies of town against town, class against class and sect against sect no longer exist; and then to extend this good feeling beyond our frontiers towards our neighbours.”
– Lord Baden-Powell
– James Bell
