Strong leaders cannot tolerate weak leaders above them.
A strong leader accepts blame and gives the credit. A weak leader gives blame and accepts the credit.
A weak people and its equally debilitated leaders are bludgeoned by history. It maims them into the cripples that they are meant to be.
To an old leader will be born an idiot heir, weak both in knowledge and in war.
And the propensity of weak and empty people to follow a leader into the darkness from which there is no return is still flourishing, as ever.
During critical periods, a leader is not allowed to feel sorry for himself, to be down, to be angry, or to be weak. Leaders must beat back these emotions
People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader leads, and the boss drives.
Don't expect to build up the weak by pulling down the strong.
