I would rather feel compassion than know the meaning of it.
-- Thomas Aquinas


Thursday, May 30, 1996


Leadership demands a quality and strength of character that is, by definition, uncommon and exemplary. Jim Rohn calls leadership life’s greatest challenge, and one that demands constant refinement.

Leaders must learn to be strong without being rude.

Leaders are kind but not weak.

Leaders must be bold without being a bully.

Leaders are humble but not timid.

Leaders are proud but not arrogant.

And leaders are fun but not foolish.

Each of us has the potential for leadership: in our family, our community, our company. Leaders are the people who make something of themselves, and who bring out the best in others. When all is said and done, there are few things that can be more rewarding than to be an effective leader.

— Ralph Marston
