Olivia De Havilland
My sports were team sports: ice hockey and baseball. The whole team dynamic is similar in business. Leadership is earned - the captain earns that role; it's not because he's the coach's son. These are all things we know, but in today's world, it's not a bad idea to remind ourselves.

It has its own momentum and it keeps on going, and I'm very flattered that people are still finding me useful.
William Arthur Ward
Martin Luther King, Jr.
