One of his favourite quotes: “The leader teaches more through Being than through doing.
The quality of one's silence conveys more than long speeches.” – John Heider
“I have often thought that the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which, when it came upon him, felt himself deeply and intensively active and alive. At such moments, there is a voice inside which speaks and says, „This is the real me.‟” "– William James
