Ambition is Critical - Welsh T-Shirt

AMBITION IS CRITICAL... is a well known phrase made famous in the film Twin Town in 1997.

The real story behind the phrase?

There is no evidence that Dylan Thomas said Swansea was the “graveyard of man’s ambitions,” but it is a common phrase associated with the city.

In response to that, Swansea council commissioned David Hughes to produce the poem to celebrate the “magic of place”.

The phrase is often seen to be a negative spin on Swansea, Wales. But many believe it was used years ago by workers who came to the city and decided that instead of pursuing work ambitions, would instead soak up the beauty of the area and settle there.
