So many people have written or spoken about the qualities of leadership over the centuries. These are quotes that inspire us to reach higher, to persist despite obstacles, or even to be kinder, gentler people. To one degree or another, we all stand on the backs of giants. Our high standard of living is the result of the hard work and difficult study of generations before us.

So – what is your favorite quote about leadership? What inspires you to get up and do your part? To persist despite reasons not to? Email your response. I’ll discuss some in a future post, along with the quotes that inspire me.
