Ambition Quotes A-Z by Author|
wanted to be the exception to the other kids, but in the right way. We have a
lot of suffering in our part of the world, but that suffering is, in a way, a
blessing. Obviously, I could not afford to go to school without a scholarship,
so that meant I had to excel in order to get one.
Abu-Ghazaleh - Inspirational

It is hope in this wider sense which enabled my father to build, from scratch,
one of India's largest modern enterprises. His was an undertaking powered by hard
work, initiative, self-belief but, above all else, the capacity, as he would often
say, "to dream with your eyes wide open".
Ambani - Ambition
I think that our fundamental belief is that for us growth is a way of life
and we have to grow at all times.
Ambani - Ambition
The organizational architecture is really that a centipede
walks on hundred legs and one or two dont count. So if I lose one or two
legs, the process will go on, the organization will go on, the growth will go
Ambani - Ambition
Dont limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to
what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you
believe, remember, you can achieve.
Kay Ash - Belief
We must have a theme, a goal, a purpose in our lives. If you dont know
where youre aiming, you dont have a goal. My goal is to live my life
in such a way that when I die, someone can say, she cared.
Kay Ash - Ambition
We're going to try and recruit the very best people we can and produce the
best papers we can, and publish them to the highest standards we can.
Black - Ambition
Don't quack like a duck.. soar like an eagle.
Blanchard - Ambition
We must have an expansionary vision, one that captures the imagination and
diversity of the whole community, one which befits a nation which has moved beyond
the basics of literacy and numeracy and which wants to develop a learning culture,
to affirm its democratic traditions and give expression to the diversity and vibrance
of its community through its public education system. Putting optimism for everyone
back into Australias future depends on it.
Brown - Learning
The Greens will continue to champion a fairer society rather than simply
the economy and to champion the parliament rather than simply the stock exchange.
Brown - Politicians
Market - Economy
I'm probably never going to be satisfied
with anything we do. I think there's always
the possibility of doing better. And I'd
say we're doing better than we were a year
ago, in terms of delivery and quality of
service, but nowhere near what we should
Case - Ambition
If you believe that some day it's going
to happen, some day it probably will happen.
You just have to make sure you're there
when it's happening, and ideally you're
at the front of the parade, and the principle
beneficiary of when it happens, but it's
not a kind of thing where you just sort
of sit back and wait.
Case - Belief
I like to build things, I like to do things.
I am having a lot of fun.
Chrysler - Inspirational
To succeed in life in today's world, you
must have the will and tenacity to finish
Chu - Ambition
A nation can survive its fools, and even
the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason
from within. An enemy at the gates is less
formidable, for he is known and carries
his banner openly. But the traitor moves
amongst those within the gate freely, his
sly whispers rustling through all the alleys,
heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he
speaks in accents familiar to his victims,
and he wears their face and their arguments,
he appeals to the baseness that lies deep
in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul
of a nation, he works secretly and unknown
in the night to undermine the pillars of
the city, he infects the body politic so
that it can no longer resist. A murderer
is less to fear.
Tullius Cicero - Fool
I'd always had a childhood ambition to go
into the investment capital business, and
spent twenty-odd years in it. But the thought
of spending the second half of my career
in the same business was boring, so I looked
around for other opportunities.
Corrigan - Business
What great changes have not been ambitious?
Gates - Ambition
In the realm of ideas everything depends on enthusiasm.. in the real world
all rests on perseverance.
Wolfgang von Goethe - Ideas
Businesses are made by people. We've proven time and time again that you
can have wonderful shop, and put a bloke in there who's no good, and he'll stuff
it up. Put a good bloke in, and it just turns around like that.
Harvey - Companies
I went to the brink many times. A couple of times I thought "I'm gone..
This is it." But then you would just keep working. I think if you're close
to the brink and just make sure that you work twice as hard and put twice as much
effort into everything and the people around you and everything, you should come
Harvey - Management
Well I DO want to go up into space, but more than that, I'm dissatisfied
with the fact that humans have only gone to the moon. I want to go to Mars! I
want to eventually go beyond the solar system!
Horie - Ambition
It was our duty to expand. Those who cannot or will not join us are to be
pitied. What we want to do, we can do and will do, together. A glorious future!
Kamprad - Growth
When you're a self-made man you start very early in life. In my case it was
at nine years old when I started bringing income into the family. You get a drive
that's a little different, maybe a little stronger, than somebody who inherited.
Kerkorian - Motivational

our emissions steady as our businesses continue
to grow. But that doesn't seem to be enough:

I was just pursuing what I enjoyed doing.
I mean, I was pursuing my passion.
Omidyar - Passions
We have always wanted Google to be a company
that is deserving of great love. But we
recognize this is an ambitious goal because
most large companies are not well-loved,
or even seemingly set up with that in mind.
Were lucky to have a very direct relationship
with our users, which creates a strong incentive
for us to do the right thing.

Like most business people, I want every
aspect of my business to be perfect. I know

nevertheless what I strive to achieve.

companies in the world.

his beloved north, and West Australia and he wanted to see Australia become a
stronger economy benefiting from the development of our north. His life was spent
pursuing that vision.
Rinehart - Economy
I never expected to be in the papers. I personally never expected to be in
the papers. The height of my ambition for these books was, well frankly, to get
reviewed. A lot of children's books don't even get reviewed.. forget good review,
bad review. Personally, no, I never expected to be in the papers so it's an odd
experience when it happens to you.
K. Rowling - Success
do not know whether I will be in this place for a short or a long time. That is
for others to decide. But what I do know is that I have no intention of being
here for the sake of just being here. Together with my colleagues it is my intention
to make a difference.
Rudd - Politicians
Lots of ambitious work by young artists ends up in a dumpster after its warehouse
debut. So an unknown artist's big glass vitrine holding a rotting cow's head covered
by maggots and swarms of buzzing flies may be pretty unsellable. Until the artist
becomes a star. Then he can sell anything he touches.
Saatchi - Art
Collecting - Ambition

I was determined. It is easy to promise but action is different.

I tell you that as long as I can conceive something better than myself I
cannot be easy unless I am striving to bring it into existence or clearing the
way for it.
Bernard Shaw - Ambition
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world. The unreasonable man persists
in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the
Bernard Shaw - Ambition
As long as I have a want, I have a reason for living. Satisfaction is death.
Bernard Shaw - Life
We are taking an aggressive stance looking at the future of Percept,
not just in numbers, but in terms of market share and size. The challenge is to
continuously sustain our growth on a year-on-year basis. The 2010 figure of US$1
billion is just a benchmark figure. Looking at the market opportunities and our
strengths, I am sure we will be well past this figure, come 2010.
