“Leaders, we must not forget, do not make themselves. They are made instead by
the people they lead, by the people who believe in them and by the people who are
prepared to follow them not out of fear, or because it may be the in-thing to do, or
because of some hypnotic spell, but because deep down there is a faith that moves them to lift us up to a height above their own in the hope that, from the lofty perch to which they have raised us, we can see what they cannot and, that having seen, we, as their leaders, can point the way forward into the tomorrows that await us all.
