Blood, Imagination and Intellect

Posted on Sunday, July 17, 2011 in Imagination, Leadership

“It is blood, imagination, intellect running together . . . . it bids us touch and taste and hear and see the world, and shrink from all that is of the brain only.”

-William Butler Yeats

Was Yeats talking about poetry or leadership?

He was referring to poetry, but he could have been talking about leadership.

The work of leadership is more than of the brain.

It is of the heart, spirit and soul too.
