Personal beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of reference.
We grow small trying to be great.
Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it. The man who knows how will always have a job. The man who also knows why will always be his boss. As to methods there may be a million and then some, but principles are few. The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.
Big results require big ambitions.
The men who succeed are the efficient few. They are the few who have the ambition and will power to develop themselves.

When you're 50 you start thinking about things you haven't thought about before. I used to think getting old was about vanity -- but actually it's about losing people you love. Getting wrinkles is trivial.
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Ambition is pitiless. Any merit that it cannot use it finds despicable.
When you go in search of honey you must expect to be stung by bees.
Where ambition ends happiness begins.
Keep away from small people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
Keep your feet on the ground, but let your heart soar as high as it will. Refuse to be average or to surrender to the chill of your spiritual environment. [The Root Of The Righteous]
Where there are large powers with little ambition... nature may be said to have fallen short of her purposes.
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.
Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.
I had no ambition to make a fortune. Mere money-making has never been my goal, I had an ambition to build.

Our ambition should be to rule ourselves, the true kingdom for each one of us; and true progress is to know more, and be more, and to do more.

The first requisite for success is the ability to apply your physical and mental energies to one problem incessantly without growing weary.
