'You do not lead by hitting people over the head—that’s assault, not leadership.' — Dwight D. Eisenhower

What would George Washington think of today’s 24-hour news cycle? While the Founding Fathers were strong proponents of a free press, they may have been unnerved at seeing their every gaffe mocked on Twitter. Why not take a break from breaking news and spend a moment revisiting the words of some of the greatest leaders the world has known?

The Essential Wisdom of the World’s Greatest Leaders gathers hundreds of quotations from more than two hundred leaders. Within these pages you’ll find presidents, scholars, and philanthropists; jurists, generals, and activists; saints, scientists, and students. The selections are arranged thematically and illuminate the intellect, character, determination, and particular genius of these remarkable men and women.

In this book:

  • Abraham Lincoln extols the value of freedom and truth.
  • Winston Churchill ponders the strength that comes from suffering.
  • Frederick Douglass speaks passionately about the evils of inequality.
  • Hillary Clinton advocates for the primacy of human rights.
  • Malala Yousafzai offers insight into the precious gift of education.
The Essential Wisdom of the World’s Greatest Leaders is a powerful and thought-provoking collection that invites us to put down our phones and spend some quality time with the extraordinary women and men who have each left an indelible mark on our world.
