A Quote from Admiral Rickover…
Rickover’s picture in the Naval Academy Yearbook…
“Responsibility is a unique concept,
it can only reside and inhere in a single individual.
You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished.
You may delegate it, but it is still with you.
You may disclaim it, but you cannot divest yourself of it.
Even if you do not recognize it or admit is presence, you cannot escape it.
If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance,
or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else.
Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something
goes wrong, then you never had anyone really responsible.”
