The great leaders can't do everything; they are the ones who look to others to help them. Great leaders don't see themselves as great; they see themselves as human. #Quote by Simon Sinek

Great Leaders quotes by Malala Yousafzai
#25. Because when a teacher appreciates you, you think "I am something!" In a society where people believe girls are weak, and not capable of anything except cooking and cleaning, you think "I have a talent." When a teacher tells you that all great leaders and scientists were once children, too, you think, "Maybe we can be the great ones tomorrow." In a country where so many people consider it a waste to send girls to school, it is a teacher who helps you believe in your dreams. #Quote by Malala Yousafzai
Great Leaders quotes by Mark Helprin
#26. Why do you think great leaders and great orations are coincident with wars, revolutions, and the founding or ending of governments and states?

This is the kind of war that will wind on and make fools of its partisans and opponents both. #Quote by Mark Helprin

Leadership is thus a spiritual quality that comes from faith and trust. #Quote by Awdhesh Singh

#54. One of the great leaders of America was Daniel Webster. That great bulging brow of his and those blazing eyes used to hold the Senate spellbound as he stood there and talked to them not with silly quips or funny remarks. The Senate in those days was not composed of half-baked comedians but of strong, noble statesmen who carried the weight of the nation on their shoulders. Someone said, "Mr. Webster, what do you consider the most serious thought that has ever entered your mind?" He said, "The most solemn thought that has ever entered my mind is the accountability to my Maker. #Quote by A.W. Tozer

Great Leaders quotes by J. Oswald Sanders
#58. Holy anger has its roots in genuine love. Both are part of the nature of God. Jesus' love for the man with the withered hand aroused His anger against those who would deny him healing. Jesus' love for God's house made Him angry at the sellers and buyers who had turned the temple into a "den of robbers" (Matthew 21:13). Yet in both these cases and others, it was ultimately Jesus' love for those doing wrong that caused Him to be angry with them. His anger got their attention!
Great leaders -- people who turn the tide and change the direction of events -- have been angry at injustice and abuse that dishonors God and enslaves the weak. William Wilberforce moved heaven and earth to emancipate slaves in England and eliminate the slave trade -- and he was angry! #Quote by J. Oswald Sanders

#Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith
Great Leaders quotes by Bob Proctor
#64. All of the great leaders down through history have told us we become what we think about. In fact, they have been in complete and unanimous agreement on this point while they disagree on almost every other point. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people rarely think, they simply accept what they see or hear. The next time someone gives you a suggestion, rather than simply accepting and acting on the suggestion - THINK - exercise your reasoning factor. Ask yourself if the suggestion will improve the quality of your life. #Quote by Bob Proctor
Great Leaders quotes by Babe Ruth
#65. I've heard people say that the trouble with the world is that we haven't enough great leaders. I think we haven't enough great followers.

Great Leaders quotes by David Rock
#83. Many great leaders understand intuitively that they need to work hard to create a sense of safety in others. In this way, great leaders are often humble leaders, thereby reducing the status threat. Great leaders provide clear expectations and talk a lot about the future, helping to increase certainty. Great leaders let others take charge and make decisions, increasing autonomy.

And great leaders keep their promises, taking care to be perceived as fair. #Quote by David Rock

Great Leaders quotes by Andrew Matthews
#100. Whenever we doubt our own ability to achieve, it is worthwile pondering the obstacles that others have overcome. To name a few ...
*Napoleon overcame his considerable handicap, his tiny stature, to lead his conquering armies across Europe.
*Abraham Lincon failed in business aged 31, lost a legislative race and 32, again failed in business at 34, had his sweetheart die when he was 35, had a nervous breakdown at 36, lost congressional races aged 43, 46 and 48, lost a senatorial race at 55, failed in his efforts to become vice president of the U.S.A aged 56 and lost a further senatorial contest at 58. At 60 years of age he was elected president of the U.S.A and is now remembered as one of the great leaders in world history.
*Winston Churchill was a poor student with a speech impediment. Not only did he win a Nobel Prize at 24, but he became one of the most inspiring speakers of recent times.
It is not where you start that counts, but where you choose to finish. #Quote by Andrew Matthews
Great Leaders quotes by Jung Chang
#101. We visited Mao's old house, which had been turned into a museum-cum-shrine. It was rather grand––quite different from my idea of a lodging for exploited peasants, as I had expected it to be. A caption underneath an enormous photograph of Mao's mother said that she had been a very kind person and, because her family was relatively well off, had often given food to the poor. So our Great Leader's parents had been rich peasants! But rich peasants were class enemies! Why were Chairman Mao's parents heroes when other class enemies were objects of hate? The question frightened me so much that I immediately suppressed it. #Quote by Jung Chang
Great Leaders quotes by Walt Whitman
#102. Our leading men are not of much account and never have been, but the average of the people is immense, beyond all history. Sometimes I think in all departments, literature and art included, that will be the way our superiority will exhibit itself. We will not have great individuals or great leaders, but a great average bulk, unprecedentedly great. #Quote by Walt Whitman
Great Leaders quotes by Alwyn Hamilton
#103. If the throne changes hands, we will be invaded. My son is an idealist. Idealists make great leaders, but they never make good rulers. So I'll tell you what I believe, Amani. I believe that if my son's rebellion were ever to succeed, or even gain enough of a foothold to cast doubt upon my rule, we would be torn to shreds by foreign powers. It would destroy Miraji, just like my father would have destroyed it before us.

- The Sultan #Quote by Alwyn Hamilton
Great Leaders quotes by James C. Collins
#104. We expected that good-to-great leaders would begin by setting a new vision and strategy. We found instead that they first got the right people on the bus, the wrong people off the bus, and the right people in the right seats - and then they figured out where to drive it. #Quote by James C. Collins
Great Leaders quotes by Simon Sinek
#105. Great leaders state out loud what they intend to do and in doing so, they get things done. #Quote by Simon Sinek

Great Leaders quotes by Marian Deegan
#110. Our lives are marked by the people who choose to matter more: the teacher who encouraged our curiosity, the neighbor who lent a helping hand in time of need, the great leaders and perceptive thinkers whose vision and innovation improve the quality of our lives. And that's what it means to matter more. It's not about pursuit of riches or fame. It's about making a difference in people's lives. Remembered or not, lived out in a small town or on the world stage, the journey of relevance matters. #Quote by Marian Deegan
Great Leaders quotes by Simon Sinek
#111. Great leaders are willing to sacrifice the numbers to save the people. Poor leaders sacrifice the people to save the numbers. #Quote by Simon Sinek

"And does your movement have leaders?"
"Great leaders."
"Then shove it up your butts," said the Chink. "I have taught you nothing. #Quote by Tom Robbins

Great Leaders quotes by Beth Ramsay
#114. Great leaders catch and correct problems while they're still small and able to be managed without a lot of hassle.

Great Leaders quotes by Seth Godin
#117. So great leaders don't try to please everyone. Great leaders don't water down their message in order to make the tribe a bit bigger. Instead, they realize that a motivated, connected tribe in the midst of a movement is far more powerful than a larger group could ever be. #Quote by Seth Godin
Great Leaders quotes by Moliere
#118. All the ills of mankind, all the tragic misfortunes that fill the history books, all the political blunders, all the failures of the great leaders have arisen merely from a lack of skill at dancing. #Quote by Moliere
Great Leaders quotes by Torkom Saraydarian
#119. If I must needs boast, I will boast of my sufferings." II Corinthians 11:30

People boast about their wealth, their physical strength, their financial success, their educational achievements... but there are only a few people who can boast about their pains and sufferings. Those who are able to lay down their lives for a great mission are rare, but they are those who are able to transcend themselves and stand as great leaders and heroes in front of humanity. -Torkom Saraydarian #Quote by Torkom Saraydarian

Great Leaders quotes by Chris Alexander
#123. Great leaders do not see people for who they are, but who than can become. Further, the great leader compels those that follow them to become that man or woman of the future, likely exceeding the expectations of both. #Quote by Chris Alexander

#126. I strongly believe that leadership is an art, not a science. I've learned that leadership can be innate or it can be learned. However, I don't believe anyone was truly born to be a great leader. Great leaders are formed over a long period of time through a series of opportunities and experiences. Without opportunities, even the greatest natural leader among us may never become known for great leadership. #Quote by Scott H. Dearduff

Great Leaders quotes by Chris Cannon

Great Leaders quotes by Phil Mitchell
#135. If you encountered God as a real person, would you be the same person afterwards? Probably not, people of faith are not always your great leaders or folks with worldly confidence. They are often the glue that keeps things together.They are helping folks out because God is with them. When you take them out, everything falls apart. #Quote by Phil Mitchell

Great Leaders quotes by Adam Grant
#149. Most people believe that great leaders are distinguished by their ability to give compelling answers. This profound book shatters that assumption, showing that the more vital skill is asking the right questions ... . Berger poses many fascinating questions, including this one: What if companies had mission questions rather than mission statements? This is a book everyone ought to read - without question. #Quote by Adam Grant

Great Leaders quotes by Werner Erhard
#152. The problems we have now in communities and societies are going to be resolved only when we are brought together by a common sense that each of us is a visionary. Each of us must come to the realization that we can function and live at the level of vision rather than following some great leader's vision. Instead of looking for a great leader, we are in an era where each of us needs to find the great leader in ourselves. #Quote by Werner Erhard
Great Leaders quotes by Simon Sinek

Great Leaders quotes by Ian Fleming
#156. And what an honour to have been chosen. How silly to have been so frightened! Naturally the great leaders of the State would not allow harm to come to an innocent citizen who worked hard and had no black marks on her zapiska. Suddenly she felt immensely grateful to the father-figure that was the State, and proud that she would now have a chance to repay some of her debt. Even the Klebb woman wasn't really so bad after all. #Quote by Ian Fleming
Great Leaders quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#157. No successful political transition can take place without leaders and movements that demand and press for freedom. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria
Great Leaders quotes by Imre Kertesz
#158. On one occasion she had spoken heatedly about the French Revolution, saying it had been little better than the Nazis. Her great-aunt responded by saying that she, being a Jew, had no right to talk about the French Revolution in that way, because had there been no French Revolution the Jews would still be living in ghettos today. After this rebuke from the great-aunt, so my wife remembered, she had not spoken a word at home for days or maybe even weeks. She had felt that she herself no longer existed, that she had no right at all to lay claim to her own feelings or thoughts, that solely because she had been born a Jew she could have only Jewish feelings and Jewish thoughts. #Quote by Imre Kertesz
Great Leaders quotes by Herman Wouk
#159. Every hour spent on the Caine was a great hour in all our lives-if you don't think so now you will later on, more and more. #Quote by Herman Wouk
Great Leaders quotes by Alex Pettyfer
#160. We live in a world where it's so accessible to date now, which is great. I don't judge that. We have so many ways of meeting people. I like to meet someone and have that chivalry, to take them out on a date and actually be a gentleman. I think that's becoming rarer and rarer. #Quote by Alex Pettyfer
Great Leaders quotes by Lisa Schroeder
#161. I swear he is there,
his arms outstretched,
the waterfall beneath him,
cascading into the
cool blue
water below.
Go on, Ava. It's going to be great!
It's not a dare.
Not this time.
But it's almost like I'm on that high dive again,
scared of what comes next,
yet knowing at the same time
it will all be okay. #Quote by Lisa Schroeder
Great Leaders quotes by Kate Beaton
#162. On The Great Gatsby: Fifteen-year-olds can really get behind an essay on what green light means, which is good, because they sure as heck won't relate to any of the characters, who are all huge jerks with enough money to be wasted most of the time on top of being miserable. #Quote by Kate Beaton
Great Leaders quotes by Christopher Wren
#163. In things to be seen at once, much variety makes confusion, another vice of beauty. In things that are not seen at once, and have no respect one to another, great variety is commendable, provided this variety transgress not the rules of optics and geometry. #Quote by Christopher Wren
Great Leaders quotes by Ursula Burns
#164. As I've progressed in my career, I've come to appreciate - and really value - the other attributes that define a company's success beyond the P&L: great leadership, long-term financial strength, ethical business practices, evolving business strategies, sound governance, powerful brands, values-based decision-making. #Quote by Ursula Burns
Great Leaders quotes by Hugh Leonard
#165. I went through life like an idiot for a great deal of the time, saying there's nothing I would change. That was a very arrogant thing to say. There's a lot I would change. There are people I would have steered clear of. #Quote by Hugh Leonard
Great Leaders quotes by William H. McRaven
#166. Our goal, which we believed to be honorable and noble, gave us courage. And courage is a remarkable quality. Nothing and nobody can stand in your way. Without it, others will define your path forward. Without it, you are at the mercy of life's temptations. Without courage, men will be ruled by tyrants and despots. Without courage, no great society can flourish. Without courage, the bullies of the world rise up. With it, you can accomplish any goal. With it, you can defy and defeat evil. #Quote by William H. McRaven
Great Leaders quotes by Kevin Fedarko
#167. We are three quarters of a mile in the depths of the earth, and the great river shrinks into insignificance, as it dashes its angry waves against the walls and cliffs, that rise to the world above; they are but puny ripples, and we but pigmies, running up and down the sands, or lost among the boulders. We have an unknown distance yet to run; an unknown river yet to explore. What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Powell wasn't overstating their ignorance. At this point, they had no clear idea how far they had come or how much canyon lay ahead of them. They did not know how many turns the river would make, how many rapids there might be, or whether their supplies would sustain them through the time it would take to negotiate these obstacles. And they had no way of knowing that their most serious challenges lay ahead. Just #Quote by Kevin Fedarko
Great Leaders quotes by Suzanne Farrell
#168. I set as my goal to be the best dancer I could be. Not the most famous, or the highest paid dancer, just the best I could be. Out of this discipline came great freedom and calm. #Quote by Suzanne Farrell
Great Leaders quotes by Elizabeth Banks
#169. I'm lucky to have worked with great actors, my whole career. #Quote by Elizabeth Banks
Great Leaders quotes by Mitt Romney
#170. I think the great majority of Republicans, mainstream Republicans from across the country, don't want to see Donald Trump as president of the United States either. They're concerned they'd see a recession and I think they are also concerned we'd see a more dangerous world. #Quote by Mitt Romney
Great Leaders quotes by William Shakespeare
#171. Upon the King! Let us our lives, our souls,
Our debts, our careful wives,
Our children, and our sins, lay on the King!
We must bear all. O hard condition,
Twin-born with greatness, subject to the breath
Of every fool, whose sense no more can feel
But his own wringing! What infinite heart's ease
Must kings neglect that private men enjoy!
And what have kings that privates have not too,
Save ceremony- save general ceremony?
And what art thou, thou idol Ceremony?
What kind of god art thou, that suffer'st more
Of mortal griefs than do thy worshippers?
What are thy rents? What are thy comings-in?
O Ceremony, show me but thy worth!
What is thy soul of adoration?
Art thou aught else but place, degree, and form,
Creating awe and fear in other men?
Wherein thou art less happy being fear'd
Than they in fearing.
What drink'st thou oft, instead of homage sweet,
But poison'd flattery? O, be sick, great greatness,
And bid thy ceremony give thee cure!
Thinks thou the fiery fever will go out
With titles blown from adulation?
Will it give place to flexure and low bending?
Canst thou, when thou command'st the beggar's knee,
Command the health of it? No, thou proud dream,
That play'st so subtly with a king's repose.
I am a king that find thee; and I know
'Tis not the balm, the sceptre, and the ball,
The sword, the #Quote by William Shakespeare
Great Leaders quotes by Jen DeLuca
#173. We have in our midst a woman named Emma. She is a tavern wench of great beauty, whose smile lights up the day like the sun, and the night like the moon. She has absolutely stolen my heart, but I do not mind in the least. In fact, if she would agree to keep my heart and take good care of it, I would never want it back. #Quote by Jen DeLuca

Great Leaders quotes by Jules Verne
#176. The Nautilus was piercing the water with its sharp spur, after having accomplished nearly ten thousand leagues in three months and a half, a distance greater than the great circle of the earth. Where were we going now, and what was reserved for the future? #Quote by Jules Verne
Great Leaders quotes by Robbie Williams
#177. I spent a lot of my twenties wanting a maid, really. I thought I wanted a relationship, but I just wanted somebody to fix and nurse me, and I'd take her hostage for six months. When you're 23, 24, you want to be in a relationship because they look brilliant - you've heard all the songs about it and seen all the movies and it looks great. #Quote by Robbie Williams

Great Leaders quotes by Harold Holzer
#181. To Lincoln, words always mattered most. Newspaper stories lived but a single day, caricatures flamed into view and just as quickly faded, and even the most flattering photographs inevitably receded behind the thick covers of family albums. But words lived forever. Writing, Lincoln believed, was "the great invention of the world. #Quote by Harold Holzer
Great Leaders quotes by Warren Littlefield
#182. 'A Different World' didn't have the blazing success that 'Cosby' had, but it was on for seven seasons, and we got a lot of awards, and a lot of faces came out of that show and have had great careers. #Quote by Warren Littlefield

Great Leaders quotes by Will Durant
#185. Stricken down with consumption in 1819, Keats, after weeks in bed, wrote to Fanny Brawne: "Now I have had opportunities of passing nights anxious and awake, I have found thoughts obtrude upon me.'If I should die,' said I to myself,'I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have loved the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remembered.'" "If I had had time" - this is the tragedy of all great men. Keats never wrote anything of importance after that; nevertheless, his friends are remembered because of him, and he has left behind him poems as immortal as English, and more perfect than Shakespeare.We #Quote by Will Durant
Great Leaders quotes by Johan Huizinga

Great Leaders quotes by Errol Barrow
#190. We will not regard any great power as necessarily right in a given dispute unless we are convinced of this, yet at the same time we will not view the great powers with perennial suspicion merely on account of their size, their wealth, or their nuclear potential. We will be friends of all, satellites of none. #Quote by Errol Barrow
Great Leaders quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#191. Any great director is also someone who is incredibly intelligent about whom they hire around them. #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
