“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.

He is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for the letterpress printing cost. I am happy to see that he has already reached his goal, but there are still lots of fantastic rewards to be had. Go get yours!
