Michel à New York #14

« I mean, a man whose hopes and aims may sometimes lie (as most men’s sometimes do, I dare say) above the ordinary level, but to whom the ordinary level will be high enough after all, if it should prove to be a way of usefulness and good service leading to no other. All generous spirits are ambitious, I suppose; but the ambition that calmly trusts itself to such a road, instead of spamsmodically trying to fly over it, is of the kind I care for. »
Charles Dickens, Bleak House
