Bishops’ Chosen Quote

 “Everybody knows that driving ambition can be a destructive force. People who are driven by personal ambition can be ruthless in their climb to the top. Some stop at nothing in order to get what they want; using and manipulating other people, hiding the truth, ignoring their families, flaunting their credentials, boasting about their accomplishments, or undercutting competitors. As they push to get ahead, their ambition destroys relationships, stifles creativity, and kills intellectual growth. It is not surprising that the Bible warns against such selfish ambition. “Should you then seek great things for yourself?” Jeremiah asked his faithful secretary Baruch. The answer is immediate: Seek them not”
