Plura sunt quæ nos terrent, quam quæ premunt; et sæpius opinione quam re laboramus — “There are more things to alarm than to harm us, and we suffer much oftener in apprehension than reality.” – Horace

Leadership requires a steadiness in the face of alarm, the ability to reassure in times of uncertainty and the courage to continue to apply unifying wisdom when others retreat fearfully to divisive opinions.
