My top 2 favorite quotes:

If I try to be like him, who will be like me? - Santiago, 'The Alchemist'

Go to the people. Live with them; learn from them; love them. Start with what they know, build on what they have. But the best of leaders, when the job is done, the task accomplished, the people will say: 'We have done it ourselves.' - Lao Tzu
