Ellen Goodman
“There’s a trick to the 'graceful exit.' It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.”
Ellen Goodman

“Exemplary leaders know that if they want to gain commitment and achieve the highest standards, they must be models of the behavior they expect of others.”
James M. Kouzes, The Leadership Challenge: How to Make Extraordinary Things Happen in Organizations

Adlai E. Stevenson II
“It's hard to lead a cavalry charge if you think you look funny on a horse.”
Adlai E. Stevenson

Eleanor Roosevelt
“To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

J.K. Rowling
“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
