Harriet Rubin
  • “The new economy is a dangerous place. It is unforgiving, and it measures human life in dog years: Three years wasted on the wrong pursuits, or, just as bad, in avoiding the right ones, leaves you 21 years older and farther off track. There’s never a time for comfort. Now, can you act as though you know that? The interesting challenge is to know that if you don’t go far enough, you’ll never know how far you can go.”
heinrich con pierer former ceo of siemens ag

  • “We live in a global economy where the most important competition takes place in the competition of education systems and this is deciding whether you’ll be successful….”

  • The canal system of this country is being threatened by the spread of a new form of transportation known as “railroads” and the federal government must preserve the canals for the following reasons:
  • If canal boats are supplanted by “railroads,” serious unemployment will result. Captains, cooks, drivers, hostlers, repairman, and lock tenders will be left without means of livelihood, not to mention the numerous farmers now employed growing hay for the horses....

  • Canal boats are absolutely essential to the defense of the United States. In the event of the expected troubles with England, the Erie Canal would be the only means by which we could ever move the supplies so vital to waging a modern war....
cont d8
  • As you may well know, Mr. President, “railroad” carriages are pulled at the enormous speed of 15 miles per hour by “engines” which, in addition to endangering life and limb of passengers, roar and snort their way through the countryside, setting fire to crops, scaring the livestock and frightening women and children. The Almighty certainly never intended that people should travel at such breakneck speed.

Martin Van Buren, Governor of New York

  • “Recognize that every ‘out front’ maneuver you make is going to be lonely. If you feel entirely comfortable, then you’re not far enough ahead to do any good. That warm sense of everything going well is usually the body temperature at the center of the herd.”

  • “Only the paranoid survive.”
thomas c gibson

Barbara WaughWorldwide Personnel Manager, HP Labs
  • “I’m often introduced as being ‘in charge of change.’ I’m not in charge of anything. My role is to create mirrors that show the whole what the parts are doing—through coffee talks and small meetings, through building a network, through bringing people together who have similar or complimentary ideas. … You seek out the positive deviants and support them. You feed them; you give them resources and visibility.”
jack nichols
Jack Nichols
  • “Every person I work with knows something better than I. My job is to listen long enough to find it and use it.”
pope john xxiii
Pope John XXIII
  • “It often happens that I wake at night and begin to think about a serious problem and decide I must tell the Pope about it. Then I wake up completely and remember that I am the Pope.”

  • “We all make mistakes. But what really makes mistakes expensive is not admitting them right away. Business culture teaches us never to admit to our mistakes but to bury them instead or to blame someone else.”
robert townsend
Robert Townsend
  • “A good manager doesn't try to eliminate conflict; he tries to keep it from wasting the energies of his people…. If your people fight each other openly in your presence for what they believe in--that's healthy. But keep all the conflict eyeball to eyeball.”
charlie brown
Charlie Brown
  • “No problem is too big or so complicated that it cannot be run away from!”
That’s the way this job is, Bledsoe… interminable periods of boredom and brief moments of intense excitement!

  • “The leader’s most important role is to instill confidence in people. They must dare to take risks and responsibility. You must back them up if they make mistakes.”
david clarke
David Clarke
  • “Networks are very important, especially for building credibility. We have leaders, but they’re not appointed. You’re a leader by having followers. People have to be able to trust you, and networking becomes the way you build that trust. Once you have it, you can initiate change.”
abraham lincoln
Abraham Lincoln

“I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.”

newt hardie

  • “Our role as leaders is not to catch people doing things wrong but to create an environment in which people can become heroes.”
bear bryant
Bear Bryant
  • “I’m just a plowhand from Arkansas, but I have learned how to hold a team together. How to lift some men up, how to calm down the others, until finally they’ve got one heartbeat together, a team. There’s just three things I’d ever say: If anything goes bad, I did it. If anything goes semi-good, then we did it. If anything goes real good, then you did it. That’s all it takes to get people to win football games for you.”

“If you aren’t having fun in your work, fix the problem before it becomes serious; ask for help if you need it. If you can’t fix it and won’t ask for help, please go away before you spoil the fun for the rest of us.”

Vince Lombardi
