Growing up under my father's tutelage, he constantly tells me this, "One man's meat is another's poison."
Here's what I came across today from 2 popular sources - Forbes.com & Time Magazine:
"When you jump for joy, beware that no one moves the ground from beneath your feet." - Stanislaus Lec
"For me, ambition has become a dirty word. I prefer hunger." - Johnny Depp
"Ambition makes you look pretty ugly." - Radiohead
Now, those are their takes. Mine's contradictory. Already, I'm laughing myself silly at the first quote by Stanislaus Lec. I reserve my rights. I'm sure you do yours.
So, my dad's right. As he always is.
