The quote is from Chapter Nine of The Paths of the Dead, the first volume of The Viscount of Adrilankha, by Steven Brust.

Piro shrugged. "I have no such plans, but, whatever the Count's plans for me may be, I have no intention of staying here for-ever."
"Ah! My lord is ambitious?"
"Nearly."
"So much the better."
"Oh?"
"A young man without ambition is an old man waiting to be."
"Ah. I perceive you are a philosopher."
