Ambition quotes
Ambition
It is the constant fault and inseparable evil quality of ambition, that it never looks behind it.

- Seneca
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. Having been alive, it won't be so hard in the end to lie down and rest.

- Pearl Bailey
When I was young, my ambition was to be one of the people who made a difference in this world. My hope still is to leave the world a little bit better for my having been here. It's a wonderful life and I love it.

- Jim Henson
Ambition is a Dead Sea fruit, and the greatest peril to the soul is that one is likely to get precisely what he is seeking.

- Dahlberg, Edward
That's a hell of an ambition, to be mellow. It's like wanting to be senile.

- Randy Newman on middle of the road music
One cannot but wonder at this constantly recurring phrase getting something for nothing, as if it were the peculiar and perverse ambition of disturbers of society. Except for our animal outfit, practically all we have is handed us gratis. Can the most complacent reactionary flatter himself that he invented the art of writing or the printing press, or discovered his religious, economic, and moral convictions, or any of the devices which supply him with meat and raiment or any of the sources of such pleasure as he may derive from literature or the fine arts? In short, civilization is little else than getting something for nothing.

- Robinson, James H.
Men are more often bribed by their loyalties and ambitions than by money.

- Robert Jackson
Ambition breaks the ties of blood, and forgets the obligations of gratitude.

- Scott, Sir Walter
He who sacrifices his conscience to ambition burns a picture to obtain the ashes.

- Proverb, Chinese
Ambition never comes to an end.

- Kenko, Yoshida
Very few people are ambitious in the sense of having a specific image of what they want to achieve.Most people's sights are only toward the next run, the next increment of money.

- Bardwick, Judith M.
The aphorism in which I am the first master among Germans, are the forms of eternity; my ambition is to say in ten sentences what everyone else says in a book -- what everyone else does not say in a book.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
All ambitions are lawful except those that climb upward on the miseries or credulities of mankind.

- Joseph Conrad
It is a good idea to be ambitious, to have goals, to want to be good at what you do, but it is a terrible mistake to let drive and ambition get in the way of treating people with kindness and decency. The point is no that they will then be nice to you. It is that you will feel better about yourself.

- Robert Solow
Every man of ambition has to fight his century with its own weapons. What this century worships is wealth. The God of this century is wealth. To succeed one must have wealth. At all costs one must have wealth.

- Wilde, Oscar
Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.

- Danielson, C. Archie
To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition, the end to which every enterprise and labor tends, and of which every desire prompts the prosecution.

- Johnson, Samuel
He who blinded by ambition, raises himself to a position whence he cannot mount higher, must thereafter fall with the greatest loss.

- Niccolo Machiavelli
What seems to be generosity is often no more than disguised ambition, which overlooks a small interest in order to secure a great one.

- Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Failure is only postponed success as long as courage coaches ambition. The habit of persistence is the habit of victory.

- Kaufman, Herbert
