I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.

There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever.
If Christians would really live according to the teachings of Christ, as found in the Bible, all of India would be Christian today.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.
A leader knows what's best to do; a manager knows merely how best to do it.
The chief executive who knows his strengths and weaknesses as a leader is likely to be far more effective than the one who remains blind to them. He also is on the road to humility -- that priceless attitude of openness to life that can help a manager absorb mistakes, failures, or personal shortcomings.
Skill in the art of communication is crucial to a leader's success. He can accomplish nothing unless he can communicate effectively.
Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.
A leader is a person you will follow to a place you wouldn't go by yourself.
The manager administers; the leader innovates. The manager has a short-range view; the leader has a long-range perspective. The manager asks how and when; the leader asks what and why. The manager has his eye on the bottom line; the leader has his eye on the horizon. The manager accepts the status quo; the leader challenges it.
Leadership is the wise use of power. Power is the capacity to translate intention into reality and sustain it.
Managers are people who do things right; leaders are people who do the right thing.

A policy is a temporary creed liable to be changed, but while it holds good it has got to be pursued with apostolic zeal.
The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problem.
I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power that can move the world.
Prayer is a confession of one's own unworthiness and weakness.
Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.
Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
It is the quality of our work which will please God and not the quantity.
All business depends upon men fulfilling their responsibilities.
A man is the sum of his actions, of what he has done, of what he can do, Nothing else.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
Six traits of effective leaders: 1. Make others feel important 2. Promote a vision 3. Follow the golden rule 4. Admit mistakes 5. Criticize others only in private 6.
