Quotes about Control

You can’t hold a man down without staying down with him.
Booker T Washington, US reformer, teacher (1856-1915)

Booker T Washington

You do not lead by hitting people over the head – that’s assault, not leadership.
Dwight D Eisenhower, US President, general (1890-1969)

Those who can command themselves, command others.
William Hazlitt, British journalist, essayist (1778-1830)

People have changed. They know more, they want to know more, they expect more, they want to be more, they want to fill up their lives with work that has meaning. There’s no time to worry about keeping everybody in line. Control is an illusion only achieved when people are controlling themselves.
David Firth, British management author (b. 1949)
