Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep and you weep alone; For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own. (- Ella Wheeler Wilcox)

"Control is not leadership; management is not leadership; leadership is leadership. If you seek to lead, invest at least 50% of your time in leading yourself—your own purpose, ethics, principles, motivation, conduct. Invest at least 20% leading those with authority over you and 15% leading your peers."

Great quotes Whisper...I just discovered a treasure of quotes from Andre de Guillames new book:

How to rule the world: A Handbook for the aspiring dictator: In it is a questionaire that will indicate whether you have the right personality to become a great leader (DICTATOR)

1. You are quick to settle into a new workplace, reorganizing labor and appointing a network of informers. YES/NO

2. You do your best to complete a task on time, even if you have to break a few heads to get it done. YES/NO

3. You like giving instructions in a loud voice. YES/NO

4. You are always looking for opportunities to undermine. YES/NO

5. You prefer meeting in small conspiratorial groups to interaction with lots of people. YES/NO

6. You find it difficult to suppress a smirk when talking about your feelings. YES/NO

7. After prolonged socializing you feel to take from others by force. YES/NO

8. The more people you address at one gathering, the better you feel. YES/NO

9. You are most at ease in a crowd that is chanting your name and saluting you. YES/NO

10. You have Citizen Kane on DVD. YES/NO



On achieving any goal, every sacrifice will seem justified, so do not fear to make them. "Greater love hath no man than this, to lay down his friends for his life'

Also you may find it useful to take counsel from Machiavelli, who wrote: "because people are wretched creatures who would not keep their word to you, you need not keep your word to them'

If it were easy to obtain power, would those who have it protect it as vehemently as they do? No, there are undoubtedly dangers along the way, and you will need all the cunning and perserverance you can muster in order to succeed. Major pitfalls and challenges are outlined where you will learn to watch your own back while stabbing someone elses and how to develop the alliances you need to secure a place at the top.

AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ FOR THE ASPIRING DICTATOR...available at Amazon.com

Self-absorption in all its forms kills empathy, let alone compassion. When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large. But when we focus on others, our world expands. Our own problems drift to the periphery of the mind and so seem smaller, and we increase our capacity for connection -- or compassionate action.

- Daniel Goleman

Where love rules, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other.

The whole educational and professional training system is a very elaborate filter, which just weeds out people who are too independent, and who think for themselves, and who don't know how to be submissive, and so on -- because they're dysfunctional to the institutions.

You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; and just so, you learn to love by loving. All those who think to learn in any other way deceive themselves.

Truth: the most deadly weapon ever discovered by humanity. Capable of destroying entire perceptual sets, cultures, and realities. Outlawed by all governments everywhere. Possession is normally punishable by death.-- John Gilmore

We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
