Thought for the day

'I think it's better to be overly ambitious and fail than to be underambitious and succeed in a mundane way' - Francis Ford Coppola in today's Independent.


  1. 'i think it better to be over ambitious and succeed than be underambitious and fail in a mundane way' Simon Key in today's Crockatt and Powell blog

  2. "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by sweat and blood...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and ...if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who [know neither] victory or defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

    This one trips off the tongue in the morning, I can tell you...
