Quote – “The Difference Between Capability and Ambition” – 8/6/2020

“Some will argue that their way to be ‘able’ in this world, is being drowned out. Yet, in the form that ambition takes, something far greater always emerges.

For to be capable simply refers to being able to lift the brick, to place it in another location. To be ambitious means to envision an entire empire constructed from those same bricks. The worker is the capable one. The leader, to the project, is ambitious.

How is it that capability could be drowned out, restricted of one’s rights for it, when workers and builders, whether literal or figurative, are always needed?

The ambitious one will always out-task the capable one.”

– Modern Romanticism
