Ambition and the Dance

Sharing Options

“But the medievalist would define legitimate ambition as the desire to identify one’s station and attempt to get there, regardless of the dignity of that station. The medievalist thinks of our entire existence as a dance, in which some bow and some curtsey, some play the music and some dance, some laugh in gladness and some try to flatter the ladies” (Angels in the Architecture, p. 167).
