Quotations from the book
“On that long road to success, and I emphasize the word long, you will stumble. You have the choice of remaining on the ground or you can pick yourself up, and struggle again on that path that you hope will take you to the career or the success that you have dreamed of. Don’t give up, just persevere.”
~Justice Joyce Kennard
Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court
“The purpose of leadership isn’t to put money in your pocket or to acquire fame. The purpose of leadership is to improve the
future. It’s to improve the lives of others for the future.”
Panetta Institute for Public Policy
“Lawyers are taught to be very powerful analytically, but they are not always taught to ask large questions and then to understand what tools are necessary to answer those questions… My view of leadership is broad. It is not just “legal leadership,” it is leadership in a variety of different settings, whether it is intellectual, non-profit, forprofit, executive branch or legislative leadership.”
~Ben Heineman, Jr.
Former General Counsel for General Electric
