Quote of the day: Leadership

When I made my presentation for Leadership Gala 2009, I quickly looked for a quote on leadership to support it. I always admired the inspiring quotes from the "cool" Alumni, so I felt that it was my turn and I chose:

Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation.William Arthur Wood

It's funny how sometimes the little dots in your life connect: under the warm summer sun, on a beach in the Danube Delta, my cousin's girlfriend was reading a book that I found interesting, and today I discover a quote - on leadership - that shares the same author with the aforementioned book:

Those who cannot think or take responsibility for themselves need, and clamor for, a leader. Hermann Hesse

What is the quote on leadership that you like most? How does it sound?

"Leadership is when you know how to follow and how to make people to follow you". Or something like that
