Ambitions

“Driven by the hunger for fame and originality, we are like these monkeys, thinking that we are so clever in discovering things and convincing our fellow humans to see what we see, think what we think, driven by ambition to be the savior, the clever one, the seer of all. We have all kinds of small ambitions, such as impressing a girl, or big ambitions, such as landing on Mars.”  ~Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche (via)

I don’t know if it’s all bad.

Wanting to impress the girl has made me a better person.
