Leadership Quotes that Inspire

nighttimestar2Quotes are awesome!  I just love them.  If I’m having a “bad day”, I sometimes open up my Twitter app and find a few good quotes.   I am sure to be moved by one of them (or all of them).  We all have a favorite set of quotes or favorite iconic person that we just love reading quotes from.  At least once a week I come across a quote that I have read for the first time.  And at least once a week I come across a quote that I’ve read before, but it hits me a little bit differently based on my state of mind.  This is one of the aspects of reading quotes and following quotes that I find so fascinating.  They always seem to move you in a slightly different way – no matter how many times you’ve seen it before.  Here are some of my favorite quotes related to leadership.  I hope they inspire you, get you moving in the right direction or change your mood (if need be).
