de Beauvoir's quote resonates with me more, but then fierce ambition is not one of my qualities. I remember an old rock song called "The Tighter You Pull, the Harder It Gets".

Both of these bring me to the very famous aphorism:

"God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."
(Saint Francis of Assisi)

Wishing you a lovely weekend.;))
