Dwight D Eisenhower: Don’t join book burners

“Don’t join the book burners. Don’t think you’re going to conceal faults by concealing evidence that they ever existed. Don’t be afraid to go in your library and read every book…”

—Dwight D Eisenhower.

Dwight D Eisenhower: Followers

“In order to be a leader, a man (or woman) must have followers. And to have followers a man (or woman) must have their confidence. Hence, the supreme quality of a leader is unquestionably integrity. without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. If a man’s associates find him guilty of being phony, if they find that he lacks forthright integrity, he will fail. His teachings and actions must square with each other. The first great need, therefore, is integrity and high purpose.”
― Dwight D. Eisenhower.

Dwight D Eisenhower: Middle of the road

“People talk about the middle of the road as though it were unacceptable. Actually, all human problems, excepting morals, come into the gray areas. Things are not all black and white. There have to be compromises. The middle of the road is all of the usable surface. The extremes, right and left, are in the gutters.”

—Dwight D Eisenhower.
