“Are you a good leader? Are you worthy to lead men? Have you considered what war may require of you? Have you confidence in your men? Have your men faith in you?–are some of the questions you must ask yourselves, and until you can answer them in the affirmative you cannot claim to be a leader.”

J.F.C. Fuller (1878 to 1966), Moral, Instruction and Leadership, Journal of the Royal United Services Institution, Vol.LXV, February to November, 1920
