  • Question:-What are some quotes on ambition leading to poor consquences?
    I need quotes about ambition having negative affects or ambition for bad things just as ambition for pay back. Need for a Macbeth essay.

    “He may prove to be totally innocent, but this is a negative -- a big distraction -- for his presidential ambitions and management of the Senate.” - Ethan Siegal

    “Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great.” - Mark Twain

    “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” - Albert Einstein

    “It's a funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it.” - William Somerset Maugham

    “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” - Thomas Jefferson

    “Our ambition should be to rule ourselves, the true kingdom for each one of us; and true progress is to know more, and be more, and to do more.” - Oscar Wilde

  • Question:-“Ambition must be made to counteract ambition…”How do these words fit into the Constitutional frameworkthat wa?
    Evaluate Madison’s words: “Ambition must be made to counteract ambition…”How do these words fit into the Constitutional frameworkthat was adopted? How well do these words reflect the needs of the 21st century?

    Answer:-Ambition is viewed as a quality that can be both a positive and a negative, depending on the situation and other attributes the person possesses. In terms of the Constitution, it can be seen as a reference to the "checks and balances" system in place for congress and the President (majority votes, laws passing both houses, and veto power), to help stop unfair laws from being passed that clearly work to th favor of one group. Of course the issue that comes up is when one political party is in the White House and also control both the House and Senate. These days, more than ever, it seems that voters will blindly vote for their political party without being sure of what the vote is even for. I'm not sure if that answers your home work question, or not :)
  • Question:-What are some examples of how ambition can lead to corruption?
    I have Macbeth, Bernie Madoff, and Joe Cassano. What are some other books or movies or people that display this theme of unchecked ambition leading to corruption and loss of morals?

    Answer:-Several Republicans are good examples of ambition leading to corruption. Richard Nixon comes to mind as an example.
  • Question:-How does studying International law affect my Military career ambition?
    I am planning on studying international law at one of my country's university because i couldn't get to study Military law that could have been the most suitable for my career ambition. Does studying International Law have any relevance to my Military career-ambition? I mean will it be relevant to any part of the Military especially the Army?

    Answer:-There is some relevance but the law is quite different./
  • Question:-What the difference between pride and ambition?
    I was reading something online and it said something was done out of pride rather than ambition? What's the difference?

    Answer:-Pride is when you are proud of yourself for accomplishing something. Ambition is to have the drive and really want to accomplish something. If you do something out of pride rather than ambition it means you dont really care about doing something but you know you can and you are proud of it.
  • Question:-How do you strike a balance between ambition and comformity?
    There are days when I ambition so much that I live bitterly, always thinking I do not have enough. Always jealous of people that are higher up.

    Other times, I say enough is enough.. I live happy, without worries, being myself, but I fear that I'll stay in the same place my entire life without any advancement.

    How do you find a balance?


    Answer:-Learn to overcome your perfectionism.

  • Question:-Should two people have the same work ethics or level of ambition ?
    Can a relationship work if two people have very different outlook on work and ambition ?

    If one is carefree and the other is super ambitious and is very unhappy with that person's lassiez faire attitude. Will this cause problems ?

    Answer:-I can tell you from personal experience the answer is yes. that was ultimately the reason we broke up. my current girlfriend is much more similar to me and I'm much happier with her
  • Question:-How does the theme of ambition surface in the text of Macbeth?
    I'm writing a two page essay for English on how the theme of ambition surfaces in the text Macbeth, and I need quotes, and whatnot. I'm so confused, I just need help haha

    Answer:-There's ambition in the sense that Macbeth wants to revenge his father by killing Claudius, and he wants to kill Laertes.
    Contrarily, there is ambition from Laertes and Claudius to kill Macbeth.
  • Question:-What are the effects of having too much power and even more ambition?
    I am doing a powerpoint presentation in which I am comparing Adolf Hitler and Lady Macbeth and both of them having too much power and even more ambition to come out on top. Also, what could be the purpose of my presentation? Please Help!

    Answer:-Well I'm no scholar or anything. But power more often than not tends to corrupt a person as they become aware of the fact that they solely decide their circumstances, and the circumstances of others. Ambition can be good so long as it doesn't get too far out of hand. I remember a quote....and I actually think it's from The Simpsons', " One person may be able to change the world, but they probably shouldn't. " Basically meaning, why should one person get to decide the fate of others? I don't know much about Macbeth, but Hitlers' ambition caused him to impact the fate of millions, if not billions of people. The purpose of your presentation could be to show that the winners are the one's that write the history books, the losers are the villains, and because they lost, they have no say in the matter.
