    (1) Napoleon Bonaparte

    (2) “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he

    Book of Proverbs can’t give chapter and verse off the top of my head

    (3) Leadership – from interpretation of the Spanish and looking at the theme, the Italian might be ambiguous as to what is sought my initial reaction to that was was guide or guidebook

    (4) Andrew Carnegie

    (5) Strength of Character
    Empathy
    Humility

    1. Napoleon Bonaparte
    2. The Bible is the best I can do
    Remember how at school if you didn’t know the source of a quotation you use to choose at random from Shakespeare, The Bible or Anonymous?
    3. Not fair. I only know French. From the tone of the questions I will assume leader.
    4. Dale Carnegie
    5. Integrity, Consistency, Fairness

  3. J Bloggs says:

    1) Bonaparte
    2) Somewhere in the bible, I guess
    3) Leadership
    4) pass
    5)
    Vision – a plan with a goal, articulated clearly
    Adaptability – for when the plan hits the unexpected.
    I struggle with naming the last quality – integrity/ trustworthiness/ fair dealing/ honest /ethical / true to thier word – all circle around what I want to say without any one of those phrases capturing the exact sense of it. Integrity is probably the closest.

    3. Leadership or similar.
    4. Dale Carnegie
    5. Integrity
    Humility
    Knowledge – especially in knowing when to resign and pass the poisoned chalice on.
