A Quote by Orison Swett Marden on goals, ambitions, desires, and accomplishments

All who have accomplished great things have had great aim; have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high; one which sometimes seemed impossible.

A Quote by John Ernst Steinbeck on story, world, humans, caught, life, lives, thoughts, hungers, ambitions, avarice, cruelty, kindness, generosity, good, evil, well, and ill

"I believe that there is only one story in the world...Humans are caught--in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too--in a net of good and evil...A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean question: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well--or ill?"

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, words, understanding, expectations, contain, ambitions, mysterious, darkness heaven, concepts, earth, ten thousand things, names, boundaries, subtle, and heart

Tao is beyond words and beyond understanding. Words may be used to speak of it, but they cannot contain it. Tao existed before words and names, before heaven and earth, before the ten thousand things. It is the unlimited father and mother of all limited things. Therefore, to see beyond boundaries to the subtle heart of things, dispense with names, with concepts, with expectations and ambitions and differences. Tao and its many manifestations arise from the same source: subtle wonder within mysterious darkness. This is the beginning of all understanding.

A Quote by Mark Twain on ambitions, destiny, and small minds

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
