Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.
Salvador Dali

actually , i wanted to become a doc. since i was 4 years grandfather was a landlord. i always used to ask him `when i become a doc. will u give me some of your land to construct my clinic?` he used to smile and say`why not dear.` then i would say `grandpa then i will certainly treat you after i become a doc. and i will not charge you a single penny` and he used to enjoy this childish talk with me.however i and my grandpa were soon parted due to my dad`s job . we moved away from the village till 3 years . we returned only after grandpa`s death. now i am in 9th. and sad to say now i have become a brutally ambitious person. i have had many sad things happen in my life(enough to distract me of my studies)i think peer pressure was the most worst thing that influenced me.but i am trying to do my best now and i am sure i will achieve my goal. :-) Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. Helen Keller

We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own. Cesar Chavez
