Booker T. Washington quotes

“There are two ways of exerting one’s strength: one is pushing down, the other is pulling up.”

“Most leaders spend time trying to get others to think highly of them, when instead they should try to get their people to think more highly of themselves. It’s wonderful when the people believe in their leader. It’s more wonderful when the leader believes in their people! You can’t hold a man down without staying down with him.

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life… as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”

“Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way.”

Booker T. Washington (American educator and reformer, first developer of Tuskegee Normal, 1856-1915)
