Historical Leadership Quotes 2021

by | Aug 12, 2021 | Quotes

I have always believed leadership is a learnable skill. It is something you work at every day, rather than natural god-given talent. As we all navigate our leadership journey it is helpful to take inspiration and guidance from the great leaders before us. I have comprised a list of some historical quotes that have given me guidance over the years.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world?” 
Anne Frank

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” 

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” 

John Quincy Adams

A leader is a dealer in hope.”
Napoléon Bonaparte

“The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.”

Theodore Roosevelt

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.”
Lao Tzu

“It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.”
Nelson Mandela
