Men welcome leadership. They like action and they relish accomplishment. Speculation, knowledge, is not the chief aim of men – it is action. All mankind feel themselves weak, beset with infirmities, and surrounded with danger. They want above all things a leader with the boldness, decision, and energy that, with shame, they do not find in themselves.
He then who would command among his fellows must tell them more in energy of will than in power of intellect.
He has to have both, but energy of will is more important.”
General Westmoreland US Army, Superintendent Westpoint Military Academy 1964
