I notice that the phrase ’ aspire to' can be followed by

1. aspire to + noun

2. aspire to + verb

3. aspire to + v-ing

Here is some sample sentences:

1, People aspire to speak for many poor.(why not use speaking)

2, I can only aspire to speaking Italian as well as you speak English. (why not use speak)

Question are:

  • The differences ?

  • When and How to use them correctly?

Is aspire used correctly in this sentence: "we aspire for our customers to find freshness, taste, pleasure, strength, energy, and health in our products."?

To me (a non-native english speaker) this sounds wrong. I do not think you can use aspire for someone else.
I think aspire is personal. We aspire, You aspire, I aspire, they aspire, but not we aspire for.

First answer I've heard that makes sense.

I find at various places. : He aspired for success; at some places aspired to success; at some places aspired after success. Which is correct?

Google's Ngram Viewer only finds 'aspired to success'. It finds nothing for the other choices.

Proper grammar:

I know it’s not about using the word aspire, but since we are talking about how to use words properly... 🤷🏼‍♀️
