Why don't you come up sometime and see me ?
Lady Lou, She Done Him Wrong (1933)
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.

All of the most successful human beings I've know were inwardly at war with themselves. Their turmoil was at least as great as our own, and sometimes greater.

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_ , a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
There was no hope on earth, and god seemed to have forgotten us. Some said they saw the son of god, others did not see him. If he had come, he would do some great things as he had done before. We doubted it because we had seen neither him nor his works.

Yippie-ki-yay, motherfucker !
John McClane, Die Hard (1988)

Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell.
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
There is no real excellence in all this world which can be separated from right living.
David Starr Jordan
We've got this gift of love, but love is like a precious plant. You can't just accept it and leave it in the cupboard or just think it's going to get on by itself. You've got to keep watering it. You've got to really look after it and nurture it.
