Explore the value of Ambition
Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition. Whether it be true or not, I can say for one that I have no other so great as that of being truly esteemed of my fellow men.
Moderation is the feebleness and sloth of the soul, whereas ambition is the warmth and activity of it.
François Duc De La Rochefoucauld
We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life.
What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn't have any doubt - it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn't want to go anywhere else.
A man without ambition is dead. A man with ambition but no love is dead. A man with ambition and love for his blessings here on earth is ever so alive.
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
Henry David Thoreau

On AmbitionSubmitted by Rosalie Cushman
It is an odd thing, to think you might have peaked in your life; to contemplate however briefly, that the very best, most productive years might be behind you. Odder still, is the acknowledgement that you simply do not operate from the same appetites that once propelled you. It feels strange to discover that just...
