A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition, which is the way in which a vulgar man aspires.
Henry Ward Beecher
United States clergyman who was a leader for the abolition of slavery (1813-1887)
