Without ambition, no conquests are made, no lands discovered, no businesses created
Ambition is the root of all achievement
Talent hits a target no one else can hit; genius hits a target no one else can see
See what others don't
It takes a strong character and a lot of willpower to hold onto a dream under adverse circumstances
Follow a steadfast path
Opportunity knocks with all the temerity of a brown trout hiding in an overfished stream
Seize the moment
History is a long list of warnings about the folly of overreaching
Temper ambition
Greatness must be driven by a purpose beyond money
Inspire with a greater purpose
Compromise is bad for ambition
Never violate values
Power comes from other people
Keep control by giving it up
Reinvention is the key to longevity
Change or die
The dead can't lead the living
Leave gracefully
