Leader

Famous quotes containing the word leader:

    The exile is a singular, whereas refugees tend to be thought of in the mass. Armenian refugees, Jewish refugees, refugees from Franco Spain. But a political leader or artistic figure is an exile. Thomas Mann yesterday, Theodorakis today. Exile is the noble and dignified term, while a refugee is more hapless.... What is implied in these nuances of social standing is the respect we pay to choice. The exile appears to have made a decision, while the refugee is the very image of helplessness.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)

    The intelligent employer encourages challenge, questioning—not blind acceptance and “our Leader knows best” acclaim.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)

    I am a leader by default, only because nature does not allow a vacuum.
    Desmond Tutu (b. 1931)
