ideal leader

The greatest leader is unknown to the people,
a good leader is known and beloved,
an adequate leader is treated with respect,
a poor leader is treated with disdain.  
Trust in oneself is not sufficient.
Indeed, the leader is not worthy of such trust from others.
Self-effacing, the leader is careful with words.  
Fulfilling duties and accomplishing works for all people,
who then will say that they did it all themselves. 
– Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
