- The American Scholar: Solitude and Leadership – William Deresiewicz
Quote: "But it seems to me that solitude is the very essence of leadership. The position of the leader is ultimately an intensely solitary, even intensely lonely one. However many people you may consult, you are the one who has to make the hard decisions. And at such moments, all you really have is yourself." Epic essay, well worth the time.
