“One Million Dollars…”

Posted on May 26, 2009


I love quotes. Short, concise, and straight to the point. It’s amazing to me how much can be said with so little. And it’s even more amazing that the right quote can immortalize you in history. Quotes have the power to inspire a movement, change lives, or start revolutions. Here are some of my favorte quotes in regards to Creative Leadership

The theme for this post is on ‘servanthood’:

“A person who is worthy of being a leader wants power not for himself, but in order to be of service.” ~ US Senator Sam J. Ervin, Jr.

“There is no more noble occupation in the world than to assist another human being to help someone succeed.” ~ Alan Loy McGinnis

“Use power to help people. For we are given power not to advance our own purposes nor to make a great show in the world, not a name. There is but one just use of power and it is to serve people.” ~ US President George Bush

“A Godly Leader finds strength by realizing his weakness, finds authority by being under authority, finds direction by laying down his own plans, finds vision by seeing the needs of others, finds credibility by being an example, finds loyalty by expressing compassion, finds honor by being faithful, finds greatness by being a servant.” ~ Roy Lessin

“Few things will pay you bigger dividends than the time and trouble you take to understand people. Almost nothing will add more to your stature as an executive and a person. Nothing will give you greater satisfaction or bring you more happiness.” ~ Kienzle and Dare In Climbing the Executive Ladder
