Explore the value of Ambition
Moderation is the feebleness and sloth of the soul, whereas ambition is the warmth and activity of it.
François Duc De La Rochefoucauld
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.

Robert H. Schuller
Wilferd A. Peterson

e. e. cummings
Henry David Thoreau
