Ambition’s a tricky thing to get right.
Not enough is a waste of time. Too much is a big mistake.
Psychologist Timothy Leary said “women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.” Beloved author Maya Angelou’s take on ambition was this: “The desire to reach the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise.”
Quip writer Cullen Hightower said “when performance exceeds ambition, the overlap is called success.” But according to a Hungarian proverb, “when ambition ends, happiness begins.”
