Quote of The Week

"It is never the duty of the leader to struggle for someone else; a leader must encourage others to struggle and assure them that the struggles are worthwhile." -- anon

The best and most charismatic leaders lead by example. A leader encouraging someone else to struggle, while enjoying the fruits of that struggle without participation, is in reality a parasite. :)

Hum, maybe that's why I'm no big on leaders.

Virginia Lady,

Just the other day I was thinking about historical leaders that I consider great- Hannibal, King Harald of Norway, Attila, Alexander, Ghengis Khan...and they all actually went into battle, unlike many leaders even back in those ancient days. It's too easy to send men to their potential ends, but to lead them into the fray...that's a true leader.
