Ambition is the last refuge of the failure

周日晚深霄看CSI,到劇終,Grissom在法庭上剛拆解完當年同袍的假證供,跟著又用了Oscar Wilde Phrases And Philosophies For The Use Of The Young 當中一句,拆解上司助他升遷的提議:

UnderSheriff McKeen: So, Grissom, I'm not sure of you're ambitions but uh, if you're interested in taking on more responsibility maybe a promotion, I'd be glad to--
Grissom: You know, Oscar Wilde said, "Ambition is the last refuge of failure." I'm fine thanks

failure 與 the failure,欠一個“the”字,解法便完全兩個。

雖曾經歷過failure,卻從未覺得是the failure,未嘗遁入Ambition之門也。
