Napoleon Bonaparte quote on interesting take on leadership from a historical perspective.

Picture of Confucian in typical welcoming pose for visitors outside Da Cheng Hall - Confucius (551–479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history. The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity.

This statue of Confucius stands outside the Suzhou Confucian Temple on the south bank of the Yangtze River, and now houses a collection of old stone steles which date back to the Song Dynasty.

Part II. Mencius (372-289 BC) was more of a storyteller. The collected sayings of Mencius, gathered by his disciples, made Confucian teachings gain a following and popularity, using clever dialogues, colorful anecdotes, and short parables. Mencius was an influential personage in his own time, more than Confucius had been. He justified social hierarchies that existed; maintained it was right that those who worked with their heads should rule those who worked with their hands.

"Ideal love is fostered only between two sincere, mature and independent people. Real love is not two people clinging to each other; it can only be fostered between two strong people secure in their individuality." ~Ikeda
