A Quote by J. (Jiddu) Krishnamurti on authenticity, love, truth, knowledge, ambition, wisdom, change, fear, desire success, and seriousness

You haven't changed. You may say: 'I'm full of love, I'm full of truth, I'm full of knowledge, I'm full of wisdom.' I say: 'That's all nonsense. Do you behave? Are you free of fear? Are you free of ambition, greed, envy and the desire to achieve success in every field? If not, you are just playing a game. You are not serious.'

J. Krishnamurti (1895 - 1986)

A Quote by Jim Collins on ambition, level 5 leaders, self-interest, and ego

Level 5 leaders channel their ego needs away from themselves and into the larger goal of building a great company. It's not that Level 5 leaders have no ego or self-interest. Indeed, they are incredibly ambitious--but their ambition is first and foremost for the institution, not themselves.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on ambition, decisions, fear, heart, mind, questions, and path

Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore, a warrior must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if he feels that he should not follow it, he must not stay with it under any conditions. His decision to keep on that path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition. He must look at every path closely and deliberately. There is a question that a warrior has to ask, mandatorily: 'Does this path have a heart?'

Carlos Castaneda (1931 -)

A Quote by Zimmermann on ambition, egotism, good, imagination, indolence, luxury, nature, pride, principles, and rest

If you ask me which is the real hereditary sin of human nature, do you imagine I shall answer pride, or luxury, or ambition, or egotism? No; I shall say indolence. Who conquers indolence will conquer all the rest. Indeed all good principles must stagnate without mental activity.
