    Courage is not the absence of fear.
    Be measured.
    Lead from the front.
    Look the part.
    Lead from the back.
    See the good in others.
    Keep your rivals close.
    Have a core principle.
    Know when to say no.
    Know your enemy.
    It’s always both.
    Love makes the difference.
    It’s a long game.
    Quitting is leading too.
    Find your own garden
