The role of statesman in society

SHAFAQNA – Imam Ali (AS) said: The statesman is like a large river which small rivers flow from it; so if the water in that large river is pleasant, the water in small rivers will also be pleasant, and if the water in the large river is salty, the water in smaller rivers will be salty [1].
