A Quote by Kent Nerburn on leadership, power, selfishness, and politics

… Good leaders wait to be called and they give up their power when they are no longer needed.  Selfish men and fools put themselves first and keep their power until someone throws them out.  It is no good to have a way where selfish men and fools fight with each other to be leaders, while the good ones watch.
