The older I grow, the more everything seems to me to lie in manliness. This is my new gospel.
Authentic leaders have absorbed the fundamental fact of existence -- that you can't get around life's inherent contradictions. The leadership mind is spacious. It has ample room for the ambiguities of the world, for conflicting feelings, and for contradictory ideas. I believe that the central leadership attribute is the ability to manage polarity.
That is a lesson for all life - face the terrible, face it boldly. Like the monkeys, the hardships of life fall back when we cease to flee before them.

The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human body, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.
Courage faces fear and thereby masters it.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Actions speak louder than words.
Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.
Pretty much everything will come to him who hustles while he waits. I believe that restlessness is discontent, and discontent is merely the first necessity of progress. Show me a thoroughly satisfied man and I will show you a failure.
To become a leader, then, you must become yourself, become the maker of your own life.

Charles M. Schwab
Sweet are the uses of adversity, Which like the toad, ugly and venomous, Wears yet a precious jewel in his head.
Shri Ramakrishna used to say, "As long as I live, so long do I learn". That man or that society which has nothing to learn is already in the jaws of death. Heart and core of everything here is good, that whatever may be the surface waves, deep down and underlying everything, there is an infinite basis of goodness and love.
What concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are.

Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never -- in nothing, great or small, large or petty -- never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.
Enthusiasm releases the drive to carry you over obstacles and adds significance to all you do.
Norman Vincent Peale

No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.
Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, and teachers.
This is as true in everyday life as it is in battle we are given one life and the decision is ours whether to wait for circumstances to make up our mind, or whether to act, and in acting, to live.
