Leadership Books quotes by Paul Gibbons
#2. I decided to write Leadership BS because I was irritated by the hypocrisy in the leadership literature and the fact that many of the people writing leadership books exhibited behavior that was precisely the opposite of what they advocated and also what they claimed they did. Stories did not seem to be a good foundation on which to build a science of leadership. - Author: Jeffrey Pfeffer
Leadership Books quotes by Jeffrey Pfeffer

#19. In the summer of 2007, I was sitting in a studio in Dublin, debating with a lay spokesman of the Roman Catholic Church who turned out to be the only believing Christian on a discussion panel of five people. He was a perfectly nice and rather modest logic-chopping polemicist, happy enough to go for a glass of refreshment after the program, and I suddenly felt a piercing stab of pity for him. A generation ago in Ireland, the Church did not have to lower itself in this way. It raised its voice only slightly, and was instantly obeyed by the Parliament, the schools, and the media. It could and did forbid divorce, contraception, the publication of certain books, and the utterance of certain opinions. Now it is discredited and in decline. Its once-absolute doctrines appear ridiculous: - Author: Christopher Hitchens
Leadership Books quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#20. A man is like a two-story house. The first floor is equipped with an entrance and a living room. On the second floor is every family member's room. They enjoy listening to music and reading books. On the first underground floor is the ruin of people's memories. The room filled with darkness is the second underground floor. How deep is it? Nobody knows. Going down to the first underground floor, people can write novels and music. However, I believe that such works cannot move people's hearts. - Author: Haruki Murakami
Leadership Books quotes by Haruki Murakami
#21. Is anything illegal here?' Addison asked.
'Library late fines are stiff. Ten lashes a day, and that's just for paperbacks.
'There's a library?'
'Two. Though one won't lend because all the books are bound in human skin and quite valuable. - Author: Ransom Riggs
Leadership Books quotes by Ransom Riggs
#22. Despite some initial reluctance to spend a whole book's worth of time with a man who flirted with misogyny, I took the plunge. Wolfe, after all, had the good sense to live in Manhattan, and besides, you had to like a man who surrounded himself with exotic tropical plants, consumed epicurean meals, and had the chutzpah to make the universe conform to his rules. And when I met Archie Goodwin, his ebullience and his earthy, rakish charm won me over. - Author: Rex Stout
Leadership Books quotes by Rex Stout
#23. A program of active reading and writing might be the hardest form of thinking, but it is also the most organized methodology of self-education. Reading exposes the mind to a world of ideas heretofore unimaginable and encourages the novice learner to write. Reading is a form a joint mediation and writing represents the product of several authors' collective and collaborative minds at work. - Author: Kilroy J. Oldster
Leadership Books quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#24. Whatever books you may read, you cannot realize the Divine merely by intellectual effort. Oneness can only be promoted by the practice of love. - Author: Sathya Sai Baba
Leadership Books quotes by Sathya Sai Baba
#25. Just stamping out anti-science and bad science will eliminate an enormous amount of business waste - Author: Paul Gibbons
Leadership Books quotes by Paul Gibbons
#26. By then, [1737]...the French were taking advantage of the new "reading rooms" created by architects such as Blondel and of new seat furniture and had begun a practice we now call curling up with a good book. - Author: Joan DeJean
Leadership Books quotes by Joan DeJean
#27. The depressed don't write books. People who are happy write, people who travel, are in love, and talk and talk with the conviction that, one way or another, their words always go to the right place."
"Isn't that how it is?"
No, words rarely go to the right place, and if they do, it's only for a very brief time. Otherwise they're useful for speaking nonsense, as now. Or for pretending that everything is under control. - Author: Elena Ferrante
Leadership Books quotes by Elena Ferrante
#28. I want children to be glued to interactive books that encourage singing and dancing. I feel when kids work together it brings about a different energy. - Author: Lisa Loeb
Leadership Books quotes by Lisa Loeb
#29. Many men may see the King in a Kid but it takes a true leader to nurture it - Author: Bernard Kelvin Clive
Leadership Books quotes by Bernard Kelvin Clive
#30. Life is wonderful and strange...and it's also absolutely mundane and tiresome. It's hilarious and it's deadening. It's a big, screwed-up morass of beauty and change and fear and all our lives we oscillate between awe and tedium. I think stories are the place to explore that inherent weirdness; that movement from the fantastic to the prosaic that is life....

What interests me - and interests me totally - is how we as living human beings can balance the brief, warm, intensely complicated fingersnap of our lives against the colossal, indifferent, and desolate scales of the universe. Earth is four-and-a-half billion years old. Rocks in your backyard are moving if you could only stand still enough to watch. You get hernias because, eons ago, you used to be a fish. So how in the world are we supposed to measure our lives - which involve things like opening birthday cards, stepping on our kids' LEGOs, and buying toilet paper at Safeway - against the absolutely incomprehensible vastness of the universe?

How? We stare into the fire. We turn to friends, bartenders, lovers, priests, drug-dealers, painters, writers. Isn't that why we seek each other out, why people go to churches and temples, why we read books? So that we can find out if life occasionally sets other people trembling, too? - Author: Anthony Doerr
Leadership Books quotes by Anthony Doerr
#31. Books were my pass to personal freedom. I learned to read at age three, and there discovered was a whole world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi. - Author: Oprah Winfrey
Leadership Books quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#32. Youth are the leaders of tomorrow. Those who practice the Spiritual Exercises of Eck will know how to lead by the example of love instead of the methods of force and lies, which are the standards of leaders under the spell of the negative force. - Author: Harold Klemp
Leadership Books quotes by Harold Klemp
#33. In the beginning - not now, thank God - Patty was always sharing the important books of her life with him, like Black Elk Speaks, The Golden Bough, and Hero with a Thousand Faces. - Author: Richard Price
Leadership Books quotes by Richard Price
#34. I once heard a writer say, 'It's easy to write a novel, you just slit your wrist and let it bleed on the pages.' She was right...Sophocles and Freud believed that we are defined by our fears. There's a lot of truth to that. When you share your greatest fears, your vulnerability, we bond in that honesty. We connect with each other and we don't feel so alone. And that's what books are really about. Connecting. - Author: Richard Paul Evans
Leadership Books quotes by Richard Paul Evans
#35. Entrepreneurial Leadership is where your vision, influence and creativity converge; it is where opportunities become limitless and your capabilities boundless. - Author: Farshad Asl
Leadership Books quotes by Farshad Asl
#36. Well… Actually, just read any books you find interesting will do. Even books that seem boring aren't actually that dull. It's just that the reader couldn't find the interesting parts. - Author: Yukiya Murasaki
Leadership Books quotes by Yukiya Murasaki
#37. I am a product of long corridors, empty sunlit rooms, upstairs indoor silences, attics explored in solitude, distant noises of gurgling cisterns and pipes, and the noise of wind under the tiles. Also, of endless books. - Author: C.S. Lewis
Leadership Books quotes by C.S. Lewis
#38. That time
I thought I could not
go any closer to grief
without dying

I went closer,
and I did not die.
Surely God
had his hand in this,

as well as friends.
Still, I was bent,
and my laughter,
as the poet said,

was nowhere to be found.
Then said my friend Daniel,
(brave even among lions),
"It's not the weight you carry

but how you carry it -
books, bricks, grief -
it's all in the way
you embrace it, balance it, carry it

when you cannot, and would not,
put it down."
So I went practicing.
Have you noticed?

Have you heard
the laughter
that comes, now and again,
out of my startled mouth?

How I linger
to admire, admire, admire
the things of this world
that are kind, and maybe

also troubled -
roses in the wind,
the sea geese on the steep waves,
a love
to which there is no reply? - Author: Mary Oliver
Leadership Books quotes by Mary Oliver
#39. The truth that writers secretly harbor is that all books are failures. We try to do something that can't be done. Words. Is that all we rely on? Smudgy ink marks on a page? Pallid wisps and blotches? Text as scaffolding trying to hold up worlds? Actually, no, it's not all we rely on. What's worse is our reliance on the reader. A writer is forever locked in an interdependent relationship. It's like building a bridge from opposite sides of a river - our flimsy words and their frail, overreaching imaginations. The bridge will never meet in the middle. It's not possible. Sometimes you haven't even decided on the same river. The Gateway Arch in Saint Louis missed in the middle by a matter of inches the first time around. They tried again and made it. Writers know we never will. - Author: Julianna Baggott
Leadership Books quotes by Julianna Baggott

#42. Every physician must be rich in knowledge, and not only of that which is written in books; his patients should be his book, they will never mislead him. - Author: Paracelsus
Leadership Books quotes by Paracelsus
#43. Service-based leadership is a mindset: you work for your people. It is not complex; often it's the small acts of service that have the greatest impact on morale and camaraderie. - Author: Courtney Lynch
Leadership Books quotes by Courtney Lynch
#44. Emery cut in impatiantly, "For crying out loud. Who do you think you are, Nancy Drew?"
Hey," I snapped, because no one sniped at my sister but me, and Mark echoed with a stern "Chill, dude."
Phin was unperturbed. "Those books were highly unrealistic. Do you have any idea how much brain damage a person would have if she were hit on the head and drugged with chloroform that often? - Author: Rosemary Clement-Moore
Leadership Books quotes by Rosemary Clement-Moore
#45. When the sun shall be folded up; and when the stars shall fall; and when the mountains shall be made to pass away; and when the camels ten months gone with young shall be neglected; and when the seas shall boil; and when the souls shall be joined again to their bodies; and when the girl who hath been buried alive shall be asked for what crime she was put to death; and when the books shall be laid open; and when the heavens shall be removed; and when hell shall burn fiercely; and when paradise shall be brought near: every soul shall know what it hath wrought. - Author: Anonymous
Leadership Books quotes by Anonymous
#46. That's the thing with reality, he said, you can't repeat it to order, you can't correct it. Perhaps we should read more books. - Author: Peter Stamm
Leadership Books quotes by Peter Stamm
#47. Our present work sets forth mathematical principles of philosophy. For the basic problem of philosophy seems to be to discover the forces of nature from the phenomena of motions and then to demonstrate the other phenomena from these forces. It is to these ends that the general propositions in books 1 and 2 are directed, while in book 3 our explanation of the system of the world illustrates these propositions. - Author: Isaac Newton
Leadership Books quotes by Isaac Newton
#48. Being a good leader today doesn't mean you'll be a good leader 10 years from now. You have to adapt to the times. - Author: Ziad K. Abdelnour
