I was not a messiah, but an ordinary man who had become a leader because of extraordinary circumstances.
Great captains earned their reputation not just for laying brilliant plans, but for still being able to find victory after those plans began to fall apart.
A man does not become the leader of a flock through brute strength but through his ability to read situations correctly.
A leader… is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.
