Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.
The best things in life aren't things.
The more we have the less we own.
If I am what I have and if I lose what I have who then am I?
I do not have what I own, nor do I have what I do. I only have what I am.
To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have.
Unnecessary possessions are unnecessary burdens. If you have them, you have to take care of them! There is great freedom in simplicity of living. It is those who have enough but not too much who are the happiest.
Every increased possession loads us with a new weariness.
Leadership is the other side of the coin of loneliness, and he who is a leader must always act alone. And acting alone, accept everything alone.
Leadership has to do with direction. Management has to do with the speed, coordination and logistics in going in that direction. The WORKERS are chopping their way through the jungle. The MANAGERS are coordinating, making sure the tools are sharp, etc. The LEADERS climb a tree and shout Wrong jungle!! The MANAGERS shout back Be quiet! We're making progress!
Certainly a leader needs a clear vision of the organization and where it is going, but a vision is of little value unless it is shared in a way so as to generate enthusiasm and commitment. Leadership and communication are inseparable.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work. I want to achieve it through not dying.
My hopes are not always realized, but I always hope.
The greater the knowledge, the greater the doubt.
It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
I've met a few people who had to change their jobs in order to change their lives, but I've met many more people who merely had to change their motive to service in order to change their lives.
Two basic rules of life: 1. Change is Inevitable 2. Everyone Resists Change. Remember this: When you are through changing... you're through.
If you can't change your fate, change your attitude.
Change occurs in direct proportion to dissatisfaction, but dissatisfaction never changes.
He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.
The best way to destroy your enemy is to make him your friend.
