Ambition Toasts

Here's to great ambition,
About which people rant. It makes you want to do the things
That everyone knows you can't.

To a man who is a true inspiration to the rest of us. If you can make it, surely we can, too.

Good, better, best;
Never let it rest,
Till your good is better,
And your better best.

To the desire to triumph. In the words of Vince Lombardi, "Winning isn't everything-but wanting to win is."

Here's to our trying. As the saying goes, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."

To giant steps, because, as David Lloyd George said, "The most dangerous thing in the world is to leap a chasm in two jumps. "

To our daring. As they say, "No guts, no glory."
