ON CONTENTMENT AND AMBITION

Hence, life attains perfection through ambition. Ambition in life in its multitudinous sectors should pervade to protect it from the pernicious demons of 'Inertia' and Passivity'. Ambition sets the ball of life in motion. Action springs form it and begins rolling not on its wheels, but by that of the former. If once ambition goes out of gear, or groove, danger pounces upon the owner. It must be carefully harnessed, controlled and brought under the thumb always. As long as if sails on the high seas of virtue, driven by the gentle breeze of 'justice', its safety is ensured. The high seas, though turbulent permit it a smooth sail, as long as it remains, indoors like a sweet sixteen. When once it peeps slowly and makes an exit deliberately throwing the canons of decency to winds, the seas grow fierce and swallow it without loss of time will not the fragrance  of the sweet sixteen get inhaled by the sundry, if she dares roaming about the thorough-fares casting amorous glances at the on-lookers. Consequently, she falls, sere and scent-lost. And she will be deemed fit then to reach the bottom of the dust-bin. Hence, keeping restraints on it is of paramount importance.
