Ambition

They simply drift with the tide. If you ask one of them what he is going to do, what his ambition is, he will tell you he don't exactly know yet what he will do. He is simply waiting for a chance to take up something. How can a man who lives without a idea ever expect to arrive anywhere but in chaos and confusion? A clear-cut purpose has a powerful influence upon your life. It unifies our efforts and gives direction to our work, so that every effort counts. I have never known anyone who followed an indolent inclination ever to amount to much.
