Ambition is the fond embrace of possession and expression.

Life is an ever-progressing reality. This is the firm conviction of ambition.

If your ambition is to achieve perfection, then do not destroy imperfection The destruction of imperfection can never be the way to perfection.

Ambition is an attempt at self-expression and self-extension. When it is based on the ego’s enlargement, we call it self-aggrandisement When it is based on the soul’s illumination, it ceases to be ambition and becomes a divine Mission.
