If ambition is akin to pride, and therefore to folly, it is none the less a mighty spur to noble action; and where it is not found in youth, budding and blossoming like the leaves and flowers in spring, what promise is there of the ripe fruit which nourishes life? The love of excellence bears us up on the swift wing and plumes of high desire,-- CHAPTER VI. 41 Without which whosoe'er consumes his days, Leaveth such vestige of himself on earth As smoke in air or foam upon the wave. Do not place before your eyes the standard of vulgar success.

The gas jets grow into suns, blazing since innumerable ages with unendurable light, and binding whole planetary systems into harmony and life.
