Others follow you for what you are, because they believe in you and what you do. You look in a mirror to see how you look. You look in the faces of others to know what you are.Earlier this year, the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies published a great compilation of leadership thoughts and quotes from our 29th Commandant. From Dr. Paul Otte's introduction:
Always more willing to talk about others than himself, we ... sat for over forty hours as General Gray spoke without notes, but with powerful emotions about the Corps and the Marines he continues to serve even today. We were able to gain greater insight into this very special Marine who "took what he got, and made what he wanted." This book is a compilation of the many sayings we have heard and heard repeated, as they have been shared from one Marine to another.Grayisms can be viewed and downloaded here.
