I, Committee

    A leader is best

    when people barely know he exists,

    Not so good

    when people obey and acclaim him.

    Worse when they dispise him.

    But of a good leader

    who talks little

    when his work is done

    his aim fulfilled

    they will say:

    'We did it ourselves.'

    - Lao-tse (c.565 BC)
    This is my favourite statement on leadership.
