"There goes my people. I must follow them, for I am their leader." Mahatma Gandhi

“The main reason why great leaders are rare is because books on leadership far outsell those on followership.” Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“Followership is a discipline of supporting leaders and helping them to lead well. It is not submission, but the wise and good care of leaders, done out of a sense of gratitude for their willingness to take on the responsibilities of leadership, and a sense of hope and faith in their abilities and potential.” Rev.  Paul Beedle

"Followers and leaders both orbit around the purpose; followers do not orbit around the leader."Ira Chaleff

“I’m not a follower of this or that religious leader. More wars are started because of religious leaders, and people are following and they don’t know why…That is religiosity. That is what turns people into robots.” Kathy G.
