How like a mounting devil in the heart
  Rules the unreined ambition!
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis, Parrhasius

Ambition has but one reward for all:
  A little power, a little transient fame,
    A grave to rest in, and a fading name!
      - William Winter, The Queen's Domain (l. 90)

Nor strive to wind ourselves too high
  For sinful man beneath the sky.
      - Christian Year, Morning

Talents angel-bright,
  If wanting worth are shining instruments
    In false ambition's hand, to finish faults
      Illustrious, and give infamy renown.
      - Edward Young

Too low they build who build beneath the stars.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VIII, l. 225)
