All souls are ever free, and that is why all minds ever hanker for freedom. A true leader is he who never hampers that craving for attaining freedom, his only concern being to see to it that when the person concerned gets liberty, he does not misuse it.
— Swami Saradananda (Apos. p. 196, Glimpses p. 116)
Others will follow you if you love them and make them your own. A leader, in order to be a true leader, must necessarily be free from egoism.
— Swami Premananda (Prem. Teach. p. 21, 53)
