I say quite deliberately that the Christian religion, as organized in its churches, has been and still is the principal enemy of moral progress in the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Civilization is a progress from an indefinite, incoherent homogeneity toward a definite, coherent heterogeneity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The test of our progress is not whether we add to the abundance of those who have much. It is whether we provide enough to those who have little.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Never underestimate the importance of nastiness to our progress thus far. If intelligence and gentleness were the chief criteria, our planet would be ruled by whales.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralizationMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Freedom from labor itself is not new; it once belonged among the most firmly established privileges of the few. In this instance, it seems as though scientific progress and technical developments had been only taken advantage of to achieve something about which all former ages dreamed but which none had been able to realize.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have enforced the law against killing certain animals and many others, but the greatest progress of righteousness among men comes from the exhortation in favor of non-injury to life and abstention from killing living beings.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The characteristic of scientific progress is our knowing that we did not know.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Poetry and progress are like two ambitious men who hate one another with an instinctive hatred, and when they meet upon the same road, one of them has to give place.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greatest obstacle to progress is prejudice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In fast-moving, progress-conscious America, the consumer expects to be dizzied by progress. If he could completely understand advertising jargon he would be badly disappointed. The half-intelligibility which we expect, or even hope, to find in the latest product language personally reassures each of us that progress is being made: that the pace exceeds our ability to follow.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For most men, and most circumstances, pleasure --tangible material prosperity in this world --is the safest test of virtue. Progress has ever been through the pleasures rather than through the extreme sharp virtues, and the most virtuous have leaned to excess rather than to asceticism.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A person with half volition goes backwards and forwards, but makes no progress on even the smoothest of roads.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All progress is experimental.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The reason for the slow progress of the world seems to lie in a single fact. Every man is born under the yoke, and grows up beneath the oppressions of his age. He can only get a vision of the unselfish forces in the world by appealing to them, and every appeal is a call to arms. If he fights he must fight, not one man, but a conspiracy. He is always at war with a civilization. On his side is proverbial philosophy, a galaxy of invisible saints and sages, and the half-developed consciousness and professions of everybody. Against him is the world, and every selfish passion in his own heart.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every clique is a refuge for incompetence. It fosters corruption and disloyalty, it begets cowardice, and consequently is a burden upon and a drawback to the progress of the country. Its instincts and actions are those of the pack.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The progress of freedom depends more upon the maintenance of peace, the spread of commerce, and the diffusion of education, than upon the labors of cabinets and foreign offices.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Evidently there are plenty of people in journalism who have neither got what they liked nor quite grown to like what they get. They write pieces they do not much enjoy writing, for papers they totally despise, and the sad process ends by ruining their style and disintegrating their personality, two developments which in a writer cannot be separate, since his personality and style must progress or deteriorate together, like a married couple in a country where death is the only permissible divorce.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That is the consolation of a little mind; you have the fun of changing it without impeding the progress of mankind.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Change does not necessarily assure progress, but progress implacably requires change. Education is essential to change, for education creates both new wants and the ability to satisfy them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Little progress can be made by merely attempting to repress what is evil. Our great hope lies in developing what is good.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By Modernism I mean the positive rejection of the past and the blind belief in the process of change, in novelty for its own sake, in the idea that progress through time equates with cultural progress; in the cult of individuality, originality and self-expression.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I was taught that the way of progress I neither swift nor easy.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pace of progress will accelerate so that even engineers and technical managers will find it necessary to recycle back through school after no more than ten years. In particular fast-moving technologies skills will become obsolete every five years or so.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Of the events of life we may have some control. but over the law of its progress none.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The State must follow, and not lead, the character and progress of the citizen.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No man can fight his way to the top and stay at the top without exercising the fullest measure of grit, courage, determination, resolution. Every man who gets anywhere does so because he has first firmly resolved to progress in the world and then has enough stick-to-it-tiveness to transform his resolution into reality. Without resolution, no man can win any worthwhile place among his fellow men.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Furnished as all Europe now is with Academies of Science, with nice instruments and the spirit of experiment, the progress of human knowledge will be rapid and discoveries made of which we have at present no conception. I begin to be almost sorry I was born so soon, since I cannot have the happiness of knowing what will be known a hundred years hence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I claim that in losing the spinning wheel we lost our left lung. We are, therefore, suffering from galloping consumption. The restoration of the wheel arrests the progress of the fell disease.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Compare society to a boat. Her progress through the water will not depend upon the exertion of her crew, but upon the exertion devoted to propelling her. This will be lessened by any expenditure of force in fighting among themselves, or in pulling in different directions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A lot of what appears to be progress is just so much technological rococo.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The greatest enemy of progress is not stagnation, but false progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Anything that interferes with individual progress ultimately will retard group progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Progress is the life-style of man. The general life of the human race is called Progress, and so is its collective march. Progress advances, it makes the great human and earthly journey towards what is heavenly and divine; it has its pauses, when it rallies the stragglers, its stopping places when it meditates, contemplating some new and splendid promised land that has suddenly appeared on its horizon. It has its nights of slumber; and it is one of the poignant anxieties of the thinker to see the human spirit lost in shadow, and to grope in the darkness without being able to awake sleeping progress.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The brutalities of progress are called revolutions. When they are over we realize this: that the human race has been roughly handled, but that it has advanced.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

He that travels in theory has no inconveniences; he has shade and sunshine at his disposal, and wherever he alights finds tables of plenty and looks of gaiety. These ideas are indulged till the day of departure arrives, the chaise is called, and the progress of happiness begins. A few miles teach him the fallacies of imagination. The road is dusty, the air is sultry, the horses are sluggish. He longs for the time of dinner that he may eat and rest. The inn is crowded, his orders are neglected, and nothing remains but that he devour in haste what the cook has spoiled, and drive on in quest of better entertainment. He finds at night a more commodious house, but the best is always worse than he expected.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Had there been no difficulties and no thorns in the way, then man would have been in his primitive state and no progress made in civilization and mental culture.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I make progress by having people around me who are smarter than I am and listening to them. And I assume that everyone is smarter about something than I am.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Is it progress if a cannibal uses a fork?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Enthusiastic partisans of the idea of progress are in danger of failing to recognize... the immense riches accumulated by the human race. By underrating the achievements of the past, they devalue all those which still remain to be accomplished.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The most heated defenders of a science, who cannot endure the slightest sneer at it, are commonly those who have not made very much progress in it and are secretly aware of this defect.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no greater impediment to progress in the sciences than the desire to see it take place too quickly.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our ambition should be to rule ourselves, the true kingdom for each one of us; and true progress is to know more, and be more, and to do more.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Time advances: facts accumulate; doubts arise. Faint glimpses of truth begin to appear, and shine more and more unto the perfect day. The highest intellects, like the tops of mountains, are the first to catch and to reflect the dawn. They are bright, while the level below is still in darkness. But soon the light, which at first illuminated only the loftiest eminences, descends on the plain, and penetrates to the deepest valley. First come hints, then fragments of systems, then defective systems, then complete and harmonious systems. The sound opinion, held for a time by one bold speculator, becomes the opinion of a small minority, of a strong minority, of a majority of mankind. Thus, the great progress goes on.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Always reward your long hours of labor and toil in the very best way, surrounded by your family. Nurture their love carefully, remembering that your children need models, not critics, and your own progress will hasten when you constantly strive to present your best side to your children. And even if you have failed at all else in the eyes of the world, if you have a loving family, you are a success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Plan your progress carefully; hour-by hour, day-by-day, month-by-month. Organized activity and maintained enthusiasm are the wellsprings of your power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Actually we are a vulgar, pushing mob whose passions are easily mobilized by demagogues, newspaper men, religious quacks, agitators and such like. To call this a society of free peoples is blasphemous. What have we to offer the world besides the superabundant loot which we recklessly plunder from the earth under the maniacal delusion that this insane activity represents progress and enlightenment?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A party of order or stability, and a party of progress or reform, are both necessary elements of a healthy state of political life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
