Elbert Hubbard Quote

“The man who craves disciples and wants followers is always more or less of a charlatan. The man of genuine worth and insight wants to be himself; and he wants others to be themselves, also.”

Great. A true leader never makes followers. He makes leader and become leader to the leaders. It is the follower who makes follower and become a follower to the follower. Venu Bhagavan, An Indian self help author

Funny a Hubbard that contradicts a more known Hubbard (these days), sadly. L Ron vs. Elber(t).

I suspect that one of genuine worth & insight really wants folks (self included) to be a better self...

I agree with one significant human exception.

Any human or divine one that "craves" disciples and wants followers meets this criteria, too, in my opinion. There is no need for the divine to crave anything -- otherwise no divinity. Craving and desire is absolutely NOT a character of divinity -- wholeness is 'holy.'
