ambit

Postby Klimt » Fri Nov 19, 2010 2:33 pm

[am-bit]

1. circumference; circuit.
2. boundary; limit.
3. a sphere of operation or influence; range; scope: the ambit of such an action.

Whatever the ambit of power conferred upon any organ of the United Nations, that may be ascertained only from the terms of the of the Charter itself.

A consciously formed wish, within the ambit of personal performance, will not be fulfilled until the imagination accepts its possibility.

I referred to the wide ambit and lack of definition of the allegations of fact in the written statements.
Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist which alone is significant - they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want.

While this one has nothing in common with gambit, it is related to ambulatory and amble. Ambulance, too.

My elderly neighbor takes a daily ambit around the block. It helps keep him ambulatory.

I should tell my kids that it is an unwise gambit to push me to my ambit.
