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
