Kahlil Gibran Quotes : No one believes the sincere except the honest. | Developing 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
A very good collection of Kahlil Gibran Quotes.

 

Kahlil Gibran was a Lebanese artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in the north of modern-day Lebanon, as a young man he immigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic.
Born: January 6, 1883, Bsharri

Full name: Jubran Khalil Jubran

 

 

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.

To understand the heart and mind of a person,look not at what he has already achieved,but at what he aspires to.

In the depth of my soul there is a wordless song.

Life without love is like a tree without blossom and fruit.

To be able to look back upon ones life in satisfaction, is to live twice.

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.

Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life & share with the people the same happiness.

Mike Harrison's curator insight, March 20, 2013 4:04 AM

The Government Procurement Service (GPS) has awarded the contract to develop the Single Supplier Registration platform, which will mean suppliers need only register once to bid for government IT contracts.

 

Government hopes this will help it increase the proportion of products and services it buys from SMEs.

The Importance of Integrity in Leadership

The Importance of Integrity in Leadership | Developing 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

In today’s world, we often look for faster ways of getting things done.  The magic of technology makes this possible.  And, there are all kinds of ways to cut through processes when they start getting in the way of progress.  One thing we can never afford to compromise however, is the integrity with which we conduct ourselves.  That’s what this post is about.

Trust is one of those things that often takes a long time to build but only a minute to destroy. As such, it is a thing to be treasured and protected. That’s where strength of character comes in, and where telling the truth and keeping promises become vital.

Okay, so we’re all human and who among us has never told a lie? But, the consequences of deception and lies often have a greater impact than we think when we first venture into the realm of the untruth. It is a lesson that most of us learn eventually.

There is a certain arrogance in believing that the rules of the universe apply to everyone but me. And, believe me, there have been times when I have been very arrogant indeed… always with a poor result.

(From the article): Skill and talent can take us only so far. To travel the rest of the way, we must make sure we bring with us a large measure of honourable intent, concern for the welfare of others and the willingness and courage to do what is right, even when it means giving up something we want very badly.  That’s what makes it so hard.
