A Quote by Peter F. Drucker on flattery, friendship, justice, leadership, limitations, people, performance, personality, personality, and vision

Leadership is not magnetic personality - that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not "making friends and influencing people" - that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to high sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.

Peter F. Drucker (1909 - 2005)

A Quote by Orson Scott Card on computers, friendship, love, personality, personality, trying, and wives

Isn't it possible, he wondered, for one person to love another without trying to own each other? Or is that buried so deep in our genes that we can never get it out? Territoriality. My wife. My friend. My lover. My outrageous and annoying computer personality who's about to be shut off at the behest of a half-crazy girl with OCD on a planet that I never heard of and how will I live without [her] when she's gone?

A Quote by Ordway Tead on democracy, dictatorship, individuality, personality, personality, purpose, sacrifice, satisfaction, self-sacrifice, society, survival, value, and vision

Sooner or later a democracy which is to survive has to be able to rely upon that enlargement of vision and purpose of those individuals who compose it, which means that their craving for devotion and self-sacrifice is satisfied in a democratic society on a nobler level, and with a finer recognition of the value of individual personality than is true of a national purpose of a totalitarian state under a dictator.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on confusion, personality, personality, ugliness, and unity

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse. The true with the false and the false with the true.

Martin Luther King Jr (1929 - 1968)

If a man harbors any sort of fear, it percolates through all his thinking, damages his personality, makes him landlord to a ghost.

A Quote by Leo J. Muir on achievement, character, facts, failure, goals, men, nature, needs, nobility, personality, personality, principles, purpose, reading, reflection, strength, struggle, weakness, and wishes

Great men are those who have had noble purposes to achieve, great tasks to perform, or mighty causes to vindicate. A high expression of self-mastery is but the reflection of these great purposes upon personality and character. The demand upon character molds the essential self-mastery; the goal forges the strength needed to achieve it. . . . In your reading you have probably found the oft-repeated syllogism: 'Great minds have purposes, others have wishes.' . . . Great purposes demand and endow strong minds; wishes need only weak minds. The soundness of this principle is found in the fact that men are not great until they have achieved great things. The strength is the product of the struggle; the endowment follows the achievement. Nature never pays an unearned account; and she never fails to pay one that is earned. In fact, earning is possessing; the two processes are simultaneous.

Leo J. Muir
