Ambition Quotes

Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.

Bill Bradley

A man's worth is no greater than the worth of his ambitions

Marcus Aurelius

The tragedy is that so many have ambition and so few have ability

William Feather

A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires.

Henry Ward Beecher

Ambition often puts men upon doing the meanest offices; so climbing is performed in the same posture with creeping.

Jonathan Swift

Ambition is like love, impatient both of delays and rivals.

Buddha

When ambition ends, happiness begins.

Thomas Merton

Ambition is like a frog sitting on a Venus Flytrap. The flytrap can bite and bite, but it won't bother the frog because it only has little tiny plant teeth. But some other stuff could happen and it could be like ambition.

Jack Handy

To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition.

Samuel Johnson

Most people would succeed in small things if they were not troubled with great ambitions.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.

Salvador DalĖ

Ambition is enthusiasm with a purpose

Frank Tyger

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.

Pearl Bailey

Nothing arouses ambition so much in the heart as the trumpet-clang of another's fame.

Baltasar Gracian

Ambition is a vice, but it may be the father of virtue

Quintilian

Love, a pleasant folly; ambition, a serious stupidity.

Nicolas Chamfort

The dearest ambition of a slave is not liberty but to have a slave of his own.

Sir Richard Francis Burton

Ambition is a drug that makes its addicts potential madmen.

Emil Cioran

It is the nature of ambition to make men liars and cheats, to hide the truth in their breasts, and show, like jugglers, another thing in their mouths, to cut all friendships and enmities to the measure of their own interest, and to make a good countenance without the help of good will.

Unknown

Wisdom alone is true ambition's aim, wisdom is the source of virtue and of fame; obtained with labour, for mankind employed, and then, when most you share it, best enjoyed.

Alfred North Whitehead

The Macedonians are a newly emergent people in search of a past to help legitimize their precarious present as they attempt to establish their singular identity in a Slavic world dominated historically by Serbs and Bulgarians. One need understand only a single geopolitical fact: As one measures conflicting Serb and Bulgarian claims over the past nine centuries, they intersect in Macedonia. Macedonia is where the historical Serb thrust to the south and the historical thrust to the west meet. This is not to say that present Serb and Bulgarian ambitions, where the past has precedence over the present and future.

Eugene N. Borza

Putting people into homes, though a desirable goal, shouldnt be our countrys primary objective. Keeping them in their homes should be the ambition.

Warren Edward Buffett

Weve gotta roll with the punches Learn to play all of our hunches. Makin the best of whatever comes your way. Forget that blind ambition And learn to trust your intuition. Plowin straight ahead come what may.

James William "Jimmy" Buffett

Ambition displeases when it has been sated... Having reached the peak, it aspires to descend.

Pierre Corneille

You Can't Manage Stress Unless You Do These Three Things
