If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each person's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Trust is the lubrication that makes it possible for organizations to work.
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.
A leader knows what's best to do; a manager knows merely how best to do it.
The great recipe for success is to work, and always work.
Success is a journey not a destination. The doing is usually more important than the outcome. Not everyone can be Number 1.
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure.
Every solution breeds new problems.
Any solution to a problem changes the problem.
The government solution to a problem is usually as bad as the problem.
If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.
Capital is a result of labor, and is used by labor to assist it in further production. Labor is the active and initial force, and labor is therefore the employer of capital.
Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed.
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent vice of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
If you're not making mistakes, then you're not doing anything. I'm positive that a doer makes mistakes.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Some men must follow, and some command, though all are made of clay.
Managers are people who do things right; leaders are people who do the right thing.
