The men and women who make the best boon companions seem to have given up hope of doing something else .....
some defect of talent or opportunity has cut them off from their pet ambition
and has thus left them with leisure to take an interest in the lives of others.
Your ambitious man is selfish.

No matter how secret his ambition may be, it makes him keep his thoughts at home.
But the heartbroken people ...
if I may use the world in a mild, benevolent sense ...
the people whose wills are subdued to fate, give us consolation, recognition, and welcome.

(John Chapman, American Author, 1775-1845)
