That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.” –Warren G. Bennis

9. “High sentiments always win in the end. The leaders who offer blood, toil, tears and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic.”--George Orwell

17. “If you wish to have power and influence over the many, be faithful (disciplined) when there is just a few. If you have a few employees, a few distributors, a few people, that’s the time to stay in touch and be totally absorbed – when there is just a few.” — Jim Rohn
