If you ever catch a great boss, it's just such a rare thing, and it's amazing.
James L. Brooks
I'm a big believer in picking your boss, not the job. Great people create great jobs.
As a villain or a superhero, as a good guy or a bad guy, I think I can do, at this point, 'Okay, whatever you need boss. Is this what you need? Great, I will grab the brass ring doing it.'
Next to excellence is the appreciation of it.
William Makepeace Thackeray
I awoke this morning with devout thanksgiving for my friends, the old and new.
When I'm not thank'd at all, I'm thank'd enough. I've done my duty, and I've done no more.
Whatever action is performed by a great man, common men follow in his footsteps, and whatever standards he sets by exemplary acts, all the world pursues.
A really great man is known by three signs—generosity in the design, humanity in the execution, moderation in success.
Otto von Bismarck
A good man likes a hard boss. I don't mean a nagging boss or a grouchy boss. I mean a boss who insists on things being done right and on time; a boss who is watching things closely enough so that he knows a good job from a poor one.

Robert Louis Stevenson
Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so.
Robert G. Ingersoll
The boss drives his men; the leader coaches them. / The boss depends upon authority; the leader on goodwill. / The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm. / The boss says "I": the leader "we." / The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown. / The boss says "go"; the leader says "let's go!"
Two managers were always arguing, blaming each other if anything went wrong. It got so bad that their boss finally called them in to talk about it. They started arguing as soon as they got into his office. The boss stopped them and said, "Let's get one thing straight here—I'm the one who is at fault. I hired both of you."
For a real quick energy boost, nothing beats having the boss walk in.
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things.
If it wasn't for bad bosses, I wouldn't know what a good one was like.
Yeah. You know what they say. "Happy captain, happy ship."
A good manager is a man who isn’t worried about his own career but rather the careers of those who work for him.
Feeling like a boss, and / Staring at the stars, it / Doesn't matter the cost, 'cause / Everybody wants to be famous / I'm calling the shots, so / See you over at Mars, it / Doesn't matter the cost, seems like / Everybody wants to be
I've half a hundred men to boss, / And take my job to heart; / You'll never find me at a loss, / So well I play my part. / My voice is hard, my eye is cold, / My mouth is grimly set; / They all consider me, I'm told, / A "bloody martinet."
Robert William Service

The best leader is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
By working faithfully eight hours a day you may eventually get to be boss and work twelve hours a day.
With power comes the abuse of power. And where there are bosses, there are crazy bosses. It's nothing new.
Don't blame the boss. He has enough problems.
