U.S. Presidents on Leadership

October 9, 2008

In this election season, I decided to share a few quotations from U.S. Presidents about leadership itself.

Here’s the one I shared with our Powerquotes list today:

“I would rather try to persuade a man to go along, because
once I have persuaded him he will stick. If I scare him, he
will stay as long as he is scared and then he is gone.”

— Dwight D. Eisenhower

And here are a couple more . . .

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only

to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”

— John F. Kennedy

“I not only use all the brains that I have, but all

that I can borrow.”

— Woodrow Wilson

“Patience and perseverance have a magical

affect before which difficulties disappear and

obstacles vanish.”

— John Quincy Adams

Make sure you vote for the best Leader among the Presidential candidates, you have until October 16th to cast your vote!
