On Leadership

  1. On Leadership.  Ruin comes when the trader, whose heart is lifted up by wealth, becomes ruler; or when the general uses his army to establish a military dictatorship.  The producer is good at the economic field, the warrior is at best in battle; they are both worst in public office; and their crude hands politics submerges statesmanship.  For statesmanship is a science and an art; one must have lived for it and been long prepared.
