Leadership is motivating, whereas authority is brainwashing. Leadership serves a cause, authority serves the self. Leadership is altruistic, authority is egoistic; leadership springs from courage, authority from repressed fear. Leadership is self-overcoming; but authority is just self-assertion. Leadership is usurping; authority is stifling. Leadership comes from charisma, authority from imposing, and,while authority is repressive, leadership is inspiring. Authority wants to control, Leadership to excel. Authority is limitation, leadership is mystical.
