Proper Behavior for a Leader

When a Krishna Conscious person is elevated to a responsible position, he never becomes puffed up. Just like a tree, when over-laden with fruits, becomes humble and lower down ; similarly, a great soul in Krishna Consciousness becomes humbler than the grass and bow down like the fruitful trees because a Krishna Conscious person acts as the agent of Krishna, therefore he discharges his duty with great responsibility.

- Srila Prabhupada in his Letter to Gajendra -- Los Angeles, 27 January, 1970
