David Foster Wallace on Leadership


“A leader’s real “authority” is a power you voluntarily give him, and you grant him this authority not with resentment or resignation but happily.”

Love this felt-on-felt typographic illustration by Debbie Millman of David Foster Wallace’s timeless wisdom. The artwork is available as a print, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
