True leaders are hard to find. They are generally charismatic, genuinely interested in your objectives, they set the standard to follow and have a vision that others are drawn towards.
These quotes, taken from a few of the masters, are designed to inspire, help you pause, reflect and perhaps improve your leadership skills.
1. “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.” - Lao Tzu
2. "You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand." --Woodrow Wilson
3."The important thing is this: to be able to give up in any given moment all that we are for what we can become." --DeSeaux
