Always say less than necessary, because a leader who cannot control his words shows that he cannot control himself, and is unworthy of respect and fulfilment, but human tongue is a beast, that few can master, it strains constantly to break out of it’s cage, and if it is not tamed, it will run wild and cause grief.

Always to control the words that comes out of your mouth, because once they’re out you can’t take them back, always be careful with sacasm and momentary satisfaction.
Leadership itself is merely the opportunity to serve and power is a God given resource with which we are meant to change live for the better.

Following the successful inauguration/ swearing in of Gov.
