Page Thirty-two THE ORIOLE
MBITION, the desire for superiority, power or attainment,
which nestles in the mind of a meek child and urges him to at-
tain that which is great. There is no doubt that there is in
every child's mind some ambition, some desire to become as
great as, or even greater, than some man or woman who has reached the
height of success in some varied field.
Ambition does not stop at childhood, but broadens out during school
life and not only determines the success of education but brings to the mind
of every individual a mental picture of his or her life's work. A man's life
leads to and radiates around his ambition. If one's ambition is to make
brick laying his life's work, it is doubtless true that a brick layer he will
some day be. If one's ambition is to become a lawyer, it is in this field he
will reach success.
Ambition is that which makes men of children. Men-yes, men. Not
only a physically strong individual, able to reach down and muscle a heavy
weight, but a man strong of characteraa man who sees in the distant
shadows a golden goal and is on the upward climb reaching on and on to
attain that height of success created by ambition.
The vapor of ambition is not diffused only from the costly mansion but
from the peasant hut as well. Have not some of the really great men in the
history of our country arisen from log cabins? For instance take the com-
mon rail splitter, no more than a ragged, barefooted lad. But in this boy's
veins lurked an ambition to rise from a common lad to a great man in the
service of his country. It led him to work hard and to strive for an educa-
tion, reading by Hrelight and writing with charcoal and shovel. This am-
bition carried him, step by step, until he reached the greatest honor a man
can attain, which is that of being President of the United States. He did
not cast ambition aside there and bear his burden alone, but preserved it to
urge him on successfully through one of the greatest eras in our history-the
Civil War. Does this not prove ambition to be essential to success? With-
out this desire you can do nothing. It is true that every one cannot be
President, but one can ever struggle to a greater goal than one has yet reach-
ed. Ambition is essential to success in any held one may choose. It is
ambition that takes a helpless child and builds him into a strong and power-
ful athlete. It keeps him on the field practicing from day to day in order
that he may reach his goal.
