Famous Christian Quotes About Leadership, Mentoring

Nothing More Dangerous Than Leading Change

Let it be noted that there is no more delicate matter to take in hand, nor more dangerous to conduct, nor more doubtful in its success, than to set up as a leader in the introduction of changes. For he who innovates will have for his enemies all those who are well off under the existing order of things, and only lukewarm supporters in those who might be better off under the new. This lukewarm temper arises partly from the fear of adversaries who have the laws on their side, and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who will never admit the merit of anything new, until they have seen it proved by the event.

Niccolò Machiavelli

Leadership and Washing Feet

Let those who are set above others glory in this superiority only as much as if they had been deputed to wash the feet of the brothers; and if they are more perturbed by the loss of their superiorship than they would be by losing the office of washing feet, so much the more do they lay up treasures to the peril of their own soul.

Francis of Assisi

Bend Difficulties with Sweetness

When you encounter difficulties and contradictions, do not try to break them, but prudently let them pass, and bend them with sweetness and time. If all do not show themselves disposed, have patience, and advance as far as you can with the rest.
