AMBITION 


"For we pay a price for everything we get or take in this world,
and although ambitions are well worth having,
they are not to be cheaply won."
—Lucille Maud Montgomery

"You'd like to quantify me, Officer Starling.
You're so ambitious, aren't you?
Do you know what you look like to me,
with your good bag and your cheap shoes?
You look like a rube."
—Hannibal Lecter

"Keep away from people who belittle your ambitions.
Small people always do that, but the really great
make you feel that you, too, can become great."
—Mark Twain

WHAT MUSIC IS FOR ~ Bootsy Collins 



When I was coming up, we weren't trying to get a hit or to get paid, we were just trying to do our thing. Truth is, the only thing we really wanted was to get out there and get recognized for our originality.

After that happened, we said 'OK, all right, so now what? What's it really all about?' Well, at the end of the day, what it all boils down to is this: we're all riding on the same boat. And we have to learn how to deal with each other, to get along.

So that's what music is for — to bring us together.
