Ryan Holiday
“ego is the enemy of what you want and of what you have: Of mastering a craft. Of real creative insight. Of working well with others. Of building loyalty and support. Of longevity.

Ryan Holiday, The Ego Is the Enemy

“Excellence withers without an adversary.”
Seneca, Letters from a Stoic

“With public sentiment, nothing can fail,” Abraham Lincoln said, “without it nothing can succeed.” Such a leader is inseparably linked to the people. Such leadership is a mirror in which the people see their collective reflection.”
