AMBITION QUOTATIONS
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

Mark Twain

“It is a grand thing to rise in the world. The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth. It is the parent of all enterprise, and the cause of all improvement.”

Anthony Trollope

“Your ambition should be to get as much life out of living as you possibly can, as much enjoyment, as much interest, as much experience, as much understanding. Not simply be what is generally called a ‘success.’”

Eleanor Roosevelt

“The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.”

William Shakespeare

“Take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly, and try another. But by all means, try something.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.”

Salvador Dali

“Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine.”

Elvis Presley

“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”

Thomas Edison

“What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn't have any doubt - it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn't want to go anywhere else.”

Hal Boyle

“You may be whatever you resolve to be. Determine to be something in the world and you will be something. “I cannot,” never accomplished anything; "I will try,” has wrought wonders.”

J. Hawes

“Don’t be afraid to be ambitious about your goals. Hard work never stops. Neither should your dreams.”

Dwayne Johnson

“There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world. It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.”

Henry van Dyke
