NUMBER:1289
AUTHOR:William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
QUOTATION:’T is a common proof,
That lowliness is young ambition’s ladder,
Whereto the climber-upward turns his face;
But when he once attains the upmost 1 round,
He then unto the ladder turns his back,
Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees
By which he did ascend.
ATTRIBUTION:Julius Cæsar. Act ii. Sc. 1.  [text]
WORKS:William Shakespeare Collection.
 
Note 1.
”Utmost” in Singer. [back]
