The Baker and the Farmer
A baker in a little country town bought the butter he used from a nearby farmer. One day he suspected that the bricks of butter were not full pounds, and for several days he weighed them.
He was right. They were short weight, and he had the farmer arrested.
At the trial the judge said to the farmer, "I presume you have scales?"
"No, your honor."
"Then how do you manage to weigh the butter you sell?" inquired the judge.
The farmer replied, "That's easily explained, your honor. I have balances and for a weight I use a one-pound loaf I buy from the baker."

My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
