Explore the value of Ambition
Faith is daring to put your dream to the test. It is better to try to do something and fail than to try to do nothing and succeed.
Robert H. Schuller
It is a grand thing to rise in the world. The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth. It is the parent of all enterprise, and the cause of all improvement.
This fork in the road happens over a hundred times a day, and it's the choices that you make that will determine the shape of your life.
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
e. e. cummings
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.
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.
Emptiness is a symptom that you are not living creatively. You either have not goal that is important enough to you, or you are not using your talents and efforts in a striving toward an important goal.
Moderation is the feebleness and sloth of the soul, whereas ambition is the warmth and activity of it.
François Duc De La Rochefoucauld

At the age of 25, she had a massive stroke. The doctors had told her family that she may not ever walk again. The stroke left her brain 80% destroyed. Two years later she is able to walk. She has worked very hard to regain what the stroke had taken away. She is a hero in my eyes.
