“A stockbroker urged me to buy a stock that would triple its value every year. I told him, 'At my age... I don't even buy green bananas' " ~ Happy FRISKY Friday ~

~ Claude Pepper ~ Claude Denson Pepper (September 8, 1900 – May 30, 1989) was an American politician of the Democratic Party, and a spokesman for left-liberalism and the elderly. In foreign policy he shifted from pro-Soviet in the 1940s to anti-Communist in the 1950s. He represented Florida in the United States Senate from November 4, 1936, to January 3, 1951, and the Miami area in the United States House of Representatives from January 3, 1963 until his death on May 30, 1989.

In 2000, the United States Postal Service issued a 33¢ Distinguished Americans series postage stamp honoring Pepper.

Leadership has to do with direction.

Management has to do with the speed, coordination and logistics in going in that direction.

The WORKERS are chopping their way through the jungle.

The MANAGERS are coordinating, making sure the tools are sharp, etc.

The LEADERS climb a tree and shout, "Wrong jungle!!"

The MANAGERS shout back... "Be quiet... we're making progress!”
