“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” – Rumi

“One thing I’ve come to understand is how important listening is to leadership. When you’re listening, you’re getting information. You’re being given the gift of understanding where someone is, and leadership is about moving people from where they are to where you hope they’ll go.” – Drew Gilpin Faust, the first woman to serve as President of Harvard University
