Aging in Hollywood sucks. There’s always so much pressure to look way younger than you are, and everyone’s watching! I’d like to embrace getting older, because it’s kind of inevitable. The different, wiser me, to be at peace with how I look and I’m supposed to look – it’s a work in progress.
All of us are guinea pigs in the laboratory of God. Humanity is just a work in progress.

America has believed that in differentiation, not in uniformity, lies the path of progress. It acted on this belief; it has advanced human happiness, and it has prospered.
Louis D. Brandeis
Americans are future-minded to the point of obsession. We are impatient at living in the present. Tomorrow is bound to be better… next year, next century, always what might be rather than what is. This trait in us makes for ‘progress;’ it also makes for a continuing dissatisfaction.
America’s greatest strength has always been its hopeful vision of human progress.
An almost indispensable skill for any creative person is the ability to pose the right questions. Creative people identify promising, exciting, and, most important, accessible routes to progress – and eventually formulate the questions correctly.

And so our goal on health care is, if we can get, instead of health care costs going up 6 percent a year, it’s going up at the level of inflation, maybe just slightly above inflation, we’ve made huge progress.

Another symptom of progress toward the Singularity: ideas themselves should spread ever faster, and even the most radical will quickly become commonplace.
Any acceleration constitutes progress, Miss Glory. Nature had no understanding of the modern rate of work. From a technical standpoint the whole of childhood is pure nonsense. Simply wasted time. An untenable waste of time.
Anyone who knows anything of history knows that great social changes are impossible without feminine upheaval. Social progress can be measured exactly by the social position of the fair sex, the ugly ones included.
Architecture will always express the technical and social progress of the country in which it is carried out. If we wish to give it the human content that it lacks, we must participate in the political struggle.
Are machines getting more and more powerful? Absolutely. It’s been going on since 1940. We are making progress, and for many people, it will be a lifesaver.

As we continue to make great progress in the war on terror, now more than ever, it is important that members of the international community stand-by and bolster the efforts of the emerging diplomatic leaders in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Be ever watchful for the opportunity to shelter little children with the umbrella of your charity; be generous to their schools, their hospitals, and their places of worship.

Daniel De Leon
Challenge is the pathway to engagement and progress in our lives. But not all challenges are created equal. Some challenges make us feel alive, engaged, connected, and fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us. Knowing the difference as you set bigger and bolder challenges for yourself is critical to your sanity, success, and satisfaction.
Change doesn’t always mean progress, but the status quo isn’t always the best result either. It is merely the most convenient.

Doubt, the essential preliminary of all improvement and discovery, must accompany the stages of man’s onward progress. The faculty of doubting and questioning, without which those of comparison and judgment would be useless, is itself a divine prerogative of the reason.
Drones photograph, prospect and advertise real estate from golf courses to skyscrapers; they also monitor construction in progress.
During the decades after Brown v. Board of Education there was terrific progress. Tens of thousands of public schools were integrated racially. During that time the gap between black and white achievement narrowed.

Joseph A. Schumpeter

Embrace a diversity of ideas. Embrace the fact that you can disagree with people and not be disagreeable.

If you can find common ground, you can accomplish great things.

John Tyler Bonner
Expositions are the timekeepers of progress.
False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness.

Great wealth could make an enormous difference over the next decade if they sensibly support the scientific elite. Just the elite. Because the elite makes most of the progress. You should worry about people who produce really novel inventions, not pedantic hacks.
James D. Watson
Growth and progress depend on more economic freedom.
Gun violence in Chicago is unacceptable. It threatens everything we have done together and all of the progress we have made in other areas.

I am working hard to keep making progress, to always improve.
Angel Di Maria

I think generationally, as human progress does its thing, we are constantly impressed by the upcoming generation.

I think to progress in major tournaments and to be at your best, you need a big squad, and you need to rotate it.
I thought it was hilarious when ‘Brace for Impact’ was released, and people said I had abandoned country, even though the song is dripping with pedal steel. If anything, that tells me I’m making progress.
I used to tell my graduate students at Stanford, ‘Don’t worry about what job you have to pick because your job picks you. Let your job pick you. Find something you are passionate about.

If we really want to make progress and achieve greater fairness as a society, it is time for elemental change. And we should start by looking at the Constitution, with the goal of holding a new Constitutional Convention.
Larry J. Sabato
If you are not making the progress that you would like to make and are capable of making, it is simply because your goals are not clearly defined.

If you’re not learning, you don’t progress.
If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.
If you’ve got an idea, start today. There’s no better time than now to get going. That doesn’t mean quit your job and jump into your idea 100% from day one, but there’s always small progress that can be made to start the movement.
I’m not anti-progress, obviously, but I just think progress needs to be a broader thing than just the technology we can create; it’s also how we handle it and our level of awareness.
I’m not satisfied with the progress of the work, but I am happy that the talks are going on. It might have a negative effect if the United States joins.
Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani
I’m sure when alternative comedy started, before which – Billy Connolly aside – standup was essentially a person being racist and sexist onstage, there was also the sense that this was the death of comedy. But it’s just progress.
In any case, whenever technical progress opened a new window into the surrounding world, I felt the urge to look through this window, hoping to see something unexpected.
In fact, technology has been the story of human progress from as long back as we know. In 100 years people will look back on now and say, ‘That was the Internet Age.’ And computers will be seen as a mere ingredient to the Internet Age.
In formal logic, a contradiction is the signal of defeat, but in the evolution of real knowledge it marks the first step in progress toward a victory.
Alfred North Whitehead

In our seeking for economic and political progress, we all go up – or else we all go down.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
In recent years, we have seen the United States back away from pressuring the Castro regime, under the misguided view that placating them with an open hand would yield progress. That naivete has invited only more cruelty and oppression in return.
In that wide struggle which we call Progress, evil is always the aggressor and the vanquished, and it is right that this should be so, for without its onslaughts and depredations humanity might fall to a fat slumber upon its cornsacks and die snoring.
In the course of the 1920s and 1930s, great progress was made in the study of the intermediary reactions by which sugar is anaerobically fermented to lactic acid or to ethanol and carbon dioxide.
Hans Adolf Krebs
In the final analysis there is no other solution to man’s progress but the day’s honest work, the day’s honest decision, the day’s generous utterances, and the day’s good deed.
Clare Boothe Luce
In the post-9/11 world you cannot give him the benefit of the doubt. As a result of our going into Iraq, not only is Saddam Hussein gone, but Qaddafi has given up his weapons of mass destruction and tremendous progress is being made in Iraq.
Peter T. King
In the progress of personality, first comes a declaration of independence, then a recognition of interdependence.
Henry Van Dyke

It cannot be right in a world of increasing human progress – whether in medicine, space exploration or renewable energy – that so many people are denied the most basic human rights.
It doesn’t matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off. You cannot make progress without making decisions.
IT for a long time has been about how do you make old processes more efficient. But with all of the progress in digital technology, there is a kind of digital transformation that is occurring. And you see it with the explosion in the number of devices; you see it in the explosion in the number of applications.
It is a matter of common knowledge among mystics that the evolutionary career of mankind is indissolubly bound up with the divine hierarchies, who rule the planets and the signs of the Zodiac, and that the passage of the Sun and the planets through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, marks man’s progress in time and in space.
It is a most certain truth, that the richer we see ourselves to be, confessing at the same time our poverty, the greater will be our progress, and the more real our humility.
Saint Teresa of Avila
It is absolutely no accident that the peace and reconciliation, and indeed the economic progress, that eluded us generation after generation for hundreds of years, has at last come to pass in an Ireland where the talents of women are now flooding every aspect of life as never before.
It is important that legislation keeps pace with scientific progress.
It is impossible to predict the time and progress of revolution. It is governed by its own more or less mysterious laws.
It is not strange… to mistake change for progress.
It is not yet too late for the Indian people to decide on rapid, ordered progress. I can assure them that the British people are as determined upon self-government for India as they are themselves.
It is true that I am not one of those who laugh at utopias. The utopia of today can become the reality of tomorrow. Utopias are conceived by optimistic logic which regards constant social and political progress as the ultimate goal of human endeavor; pessimism would plunge a hopeless mankind into a fresh cataclysm.
Charles Albert Gobat
It may be that there is no such thing as an equable motion, whereby time may be accurately measured. All motions may be accelerated or retarded, but the true, or equable, progress of absolute time is liable to no change.
It seems that if one is working from the point of view of getting beauty in one’s equations, and if one has really a sound insight, one is on a sure line of progress.
It seems to me that women have made an awful lot of progress, but they probably remain underrepresented at the highest levels of most organizations, for a variety of reasons. And it’s probably going to take a long time to change that.
It was Einstein’s dream to discover the grand design of the universe, a single theory that explains everything. However, physicists in Einstein’s day hadn’t made enough progress in understanding the forces of nature for that to be a realistic goal.
It would do the world good if every man would compel himself occasionally to be absolutely alone. Most of the world s progress has come out of such loneliness.
It would not be foolish to contemplate the possibility of a far greater progress still.
John Maynard Keynes
Iteration, like friction, is likely to generate heat instead of progress.
It’s a big theme in my life, learning about myself and being a better person. I’m a work in progress; I have revelations every day.
It’s annoying to be on the bench – it’s truly annoying – but it’s a test you have to overcome, and that’s how you progress. It’s difficult because all you want is to be able to help the team, and when you’re on the bench, you can’t.
It’s crazy how fast time flies and how things progress.
It’s no good kicking progress In the teeth – there’s nothing wrong with a tractor.
It’s only when we stop looking exclusively to the podium for our heroes and start looking all around us that we’ll make the greatest progress toward a better tomorrow.
It’s the same each time with progress. First they ignore you, then they say you’re mad, then dangerous, then there’s a pause and then you can’t find anyone who disagrees with you.
It’s time to stop obsessing about overhead and start focusing on progress. Change charity, and charity can change the world.
It’s true that globalization, with all its fantastic improvements in the world and the technological progress linked to it, has increased inequality at country level, especially inside countries. And there are people that were left behind – people, sectors, regions – that has created a sense of frustration in the rust belts of the world.
I’ve always had an enormous sense of independence. But I know that sometimes I can be too independent. It is important to be able to share your life – so that is a work in progress for me.
I’ve been studying the Bible for a long time. I remember that after the first five years or so of diligently studying the Word, I didn’t feel like I had made any progress. There were a lot of things in my life that were out of order, and I didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere.
I’ve learned that positive thinking and encouragement are essential for leadership and progress.
Richard M. DeVos

Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family.
Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress.

Morris Raphael Cohen
Liberty is the breath of progress.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Life is a progress from want to want, not from enjoyment to enjoyment.
Life is a work in progress.
Life is short and progress is slow.

Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S Truman
Modern invention has banished the spinning wheel, and the same law of progress makes the woman of today a different woman from her grandmother.
Susan B. Anthony
More and more, as civilization develops, we find the primitive to be essential to us. We root into the primitive as a tree roots into the earth. If we cut off the roots, we lose the sap without which we can’t progress or even survive. I don’t believe our civilization can continue very long out of contact with the primitive.
Movement isn’t progress.
Must simplicity and humanity go under in the interest of progress? What is the most important component of civilization – is it human or mechanical? Must thought processes become involved and insincere? Must the class-struggle warp those who are involved in it?
My advice always is to start very simple and master your timing and master the most simple beats that you can, and you just keep elevating from that. Trying to go right into playing fast is not necessarily the best way to go about it, because if you don’t have your foundation locked in, it’s hard to progress.
My daddy expected that my brothers and I and our generation would make the world a better place. He had lived in an America of continual social progress.
My generation, we’re so smart and opinionated, and we know the world we want to live in; we know the future we want. We’re such a liberal, forward-thinking generation that’s been held back by an older generation that doesn’t understand it, doesn’t want the world to progress quickly because of old ideologies.
My progress was rendered delightful by the sylvan elegance of the groves, chearful meadows, and high distant forests, which in grand order presented themselves to view.
Natural life, lived naturally as it is lived in the countryside, has none of that progress which is the base of happiness. Men and women in rural communities can be compared to a spring that rises out of a rock and spreads in irregular ever-widening circles. But the general principle is static.
Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.
Nature knows no pause in progress and development, and attaches her curse on all inaction.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Neither an ox nor a donkey is able to stop the progress of socialism.
Never stop believing in yourself; play with your qualities. You always have to keep making steps. Progress is everything. The big players, every season, they become a new player: they learn, and they learn. That’s the key.
No individual is alone responsible for a single stepping stone along the path of progress, and where the path is smooth progress is most rapid.
No matter how powerful our political and religious leaders think they are, they are as dust before the immense and implacable forces of history and progress. I just hope that they don’t make too much of a mess or take too many more people down with them.
Nothing can have as its destination anything other than its origin. The contrary idea, the idea of progress, is poison.
Nothing is more useless in developing a nation’s economy than a gun, and nothing blocks the road to social development more than the financial burden of war. War is the arch enemy of national progress and the modern scourge of civilized men.
Hussein of Jordan
Nothing recedes like progress.
e. e. cummings
Nothing so obstinately stands in the way of all sorts of progress as pride of opinion. While nothing is so foolish and baseless.
Josiah Gilbert Holland
Now, I have always believed that women are not victims; we are agents of change, we are drivers of progress, we are makers of peace – all we need is a fighting chance.
Obama was elected in a flourish of promise that many in the African-American community believed would help not only to symbolize African-American progress since the Civil War and Civil Rights Acts but that his presidency would result in doors opening in the halls of power as had never been seen before by black America.
Obedience to the law of chastity will increase our happiness in mortality and make possible our progress in eternity.
David A. Bednar
Obstacles may retard, but they cannot long prevent the progress of a movement sanctioned by its justice and sustained by a virtuous people.
Of course everyone has those moments of frustration now and then, when you say, ‘I wish I could play well already – or just stop.’ But it’s too much trouble to stop just for a moment of frustration. It is when you keep going that you make the most progress.
Of course, technology is not an exogenous force over which humans have no control. We are not constrained by a binary choice between acceptance and rejection. Rather, the decisions we make every day as citizens, consumers, and investors guide technological progress.
On every front there are clear answers out there that can make this country stronger, but we’re going to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling. Our job is to make sure that even as we make progress, that we are also giving people a sense of hope and vision for the future.
On one hand, I think it’s very important to talk about race and talk about gender, because if it’s not talked about, then we won’t progress. What I have a problem with is when it becomes another form of tokenization, of shrinking me into a symbol instead of a multilayered, female Asian artist.
On the other hand, the waging of peace as a science, as an art, is in its infancy. But we can trace its growth, its steady progress, and the time will come when there will be particular individuals designated to assume responsibility for and leadership of this movement.
Once an organization loses its spirit of pioneering and rests on its early work, its progress stops.
Thomas J. Watson
One can not impede scientific progress.
One day’s delay is another day’s lack of progress.
One of the lessons I have learned in the different stages of my career is that science is not done alone. It is through talking with others and sharing that progress is made.
Carol W. Greider
One of the things I miss most is that I can no longer read, due to age-related macular degeneration. I get regular injections for this, and thankfully these seem to have arrested its progress, but it’s still very difficult for me to read. That means it is hard for me to pick up my Bible and read it like I used to, and I miss that very much.
One way to understand human progress is to look at how technology has made products and services – once reserved for the elite – progressively more accessible and affordable.
Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.
Nicholas M. Butler
Optimism is infectious, and opportunity irresistible. Progress follows progress. Someone, even government, just has to get it started.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
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.
Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong human element to keep modesty and natural life.
Nam June Paik
Our progress against malaria is impressive. But vigilance remains a critical ingredient to protect the health of all people.
Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.
John F. Kennedy
Our society cannot progress while our constitution stands still.
People are craving this great progress in electronics, going after computers, the Internet, etc. It’s a giant progress technologically. But they must have a balance of soul, a balance for human beauty. That means art has an important role.
People don’t want to believe that technology is broken. Pharmaceuticals, robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology – all these areas where the progress has been a lot more limited than people think. And the question is why.
People respond in accordance to how you relate to them. If you approach them on the basis of violence, that’s how they’ll react. But if you say, ‘We want peace, we want stability,’ we can then do a lot of things that will contribute towards the progress of our society.
People tend to think that life really does progress for everyone eventually, that people progress, but actually only some people progress. The rest of the people don’t.
People who work crossword puzzles know that if they stop making progress, they should put the puzzle down for a while.
Marilyn vos Savant
Perhaps the best definition of progress would be the continuing efforts of men and women to narrow the gap between the convenience of the powers that be and the unwritten charter.
Plots may be simple or complex, but suspense, and climactic progress from one incident to another, are essential. Every incident in a fictional work should have some bearing on the climax or denouement, and any denouement which is not the inevitable result of the preceding incidents is awkward and unliterary.
H. P. Lovecraft
Pluralism is no longer simply an asset or a prerequisite for progress and development; it is vital to our existence.
Aga Khan IV
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.
Politics I conceive to be nothing more than the science of the ordered progress of society along the lines of greatest usefulness and convenience to itself.
Problems are the price of progress. Don’t bring me anything but trouble. Good news weakens me.
Problems are the price you pay for progress.
Productivity – the amount of output delivered per hour of work in the economy – is often viewed as the engine of progress in modern capitalist economies. Output is everything. Time is money. The quest for increased productivity occupies reams of academic literature and haunts the waking hours of C.E.O.s and finance ministers.
Progress comes at a price. You have to be willing to make tough calls and take the hits.
Progress comes to those who train and train; reliance on secret techniques will get you nowhere.

Progress everywhere today does seem to come so very heavily disguised as Chaos.
Progress for black Americans depends on good schools because education is the last great equalizer.
Progress however, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step.
Progress imposes not only new possibilities for the future but new restrictions.
Progress in civilization has been accompanied by progress in cookery.
Progress in human affairs is more often a pull than a push, surging forward of the exceptional man, and the lifting of his duller brethren slowly and painfully to his vantage ground.
W. E. B. Du Bois
Progress is a choice. Job creation is a choice. Whether we give our children a future of more or a future of less – this, too, is a choice.
Progress is a nice word. But change is its motivator. And change has its enemies.
Progress is always relative: to the oppressed, it can only be viewed as an all or nothing deal – if oppression continues, even in a modified form, then the system must still be attacked until that injustice is eradicated.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
George Bernard Shaw

Progress will always have as its recourse to exaggerate what it cannot surpass.
Progress would be wonderful – if only it would stop.
Progress, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step.
Progress, this great heresy of decay.
Progressivism is the cancer in America and it is eating our Constitution, and it was designed to eat the Constitution, to progress past the Constitution.
Real progress comes from people.
Real progress will have been made when people don’t care or even notice the color of a comedian when they’ll just be concerned with whether he’s funny.
Reform is the mission from which we shall not digress; it is an expression of belief and determination between us and our people. With the help of Allah, we will proceed forward in this promising national process within the natural progress of the life cycle and the development of people and nation.
Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa
Regardless of political affiliation most of the policy/media world, as a subset of ‘the educated classes’ in general, tended to hold a broadly ‘blank slate’ view of the world mostly uninformed by decades of scientific progress.
Regardless of the difficulties we may face individually, in our families, in our communities and in our nation, the old adage is still true – you can make excuses or you can make progress, but you cannot make both! The America I know doesn’t make excuses.
Religion often partakes of the myth of progress that shields us from the terrors of an uncertain future.
Religion, as it is understood in the West, does not lead toward progress, and science does not lead toward humanism.
Remember, life itself is a mission. While we are on the go, we need to stop between steps to re-focus on the Word and the Will of God. While we are on the go, I mean, while we are on the mission, we need to sometimes stop at intervals to assess our progress and prepare ourselves for the challenges ahead.
T. B. Joshua
Remember, social progress only happens when those in society’s privileged classes choose to give up their status.

Science is the first expression of punk, because it doesn’t advance without challenging authority. It doesn’t make progress without tearing down what was there before and building upon the structure.
Scientific progress makes moral progress a necessity; for if man’s power is increased, the checks that restrain him from abusing it must be strengthened.
Madame de Stael
Self-government does not and should not imply the use of political agencies alone. Progress is born of cooperation in the community – not from governmental restraints.
Self-reflection is so healthy. Journaling works for me – when I record the details of what I’m going through, whether it’s a relationship issue or negative thoughts, I can look back and see how far I’ve come. It makes me proud to see my progress and how I got through a bad situation.
Selling beauty is something I can understand. Even selling false beauty seems perfectly natural; it’s a sign of progress.

Social media requires that business leaders start thinking like small-town shop owners. This means taking the long view and avoiding short-term benchmarks to gauge progress. It means allowing the personality, heart and soul of the people who run all levels of the business to show.
Social movements are at once the symptoms and the instruments of progress. Ignore them and statesmanship is irrelevant; fail to use them and it is weak.
Social progress can be measured by the social position of the female sex.
Some of the generals are saying, ‘We’re making progress. We are clearing an area.’ But you really don’t defeat the Taliban by clearing an area. They move.

Sometimes when you’re at a club like Chelsea you feel sorry when you see a player move on, because naturally some progress and some don’t. You don’t hear about the ones that don’t.
State government has too often been used to look out for the insiders and not the citizens. This has insulated poverty from progress, and need from remedy.

Substantial progress toward better things can rarely be taken without developing new evils requiring new remedies.
William Howard Taft
Success is steady progress toward one’s personal goals.
Teach thy tongue to say ‘I do not know’, and thou shalt progress.
Technological progress becomes even more exciting when it enters into the service of the social idea which demands that not only a small elite but humanity at large should profit by it.
Rudolf Christoph Eucken
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards.
Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.
Technology has a shadow side. It accounts for real progress in medicine, but has also hurt it in many ways, making it more impersonal, expensive and dangerous. The false belief that a safety net of sophisticated drugs and machines stretches below us, permitting risky or lazy lifestyle choices, has undermined our spirit of self-reliance.
That is the consolation of a little mind; you have the fun of changing it without impeding the progress of mankind.
Frank Moore Colby
The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress.

The benefits of biomedical progress are obvious, clear, and powerful. The hazards are much less well appreciated.
The best road to progress is freedom’s road.
John F. Kennedy
The black community now in many ways divided itself the way the larger white community divides itself, over class issues. And that race is no longer the bond that it once was. That’s one of the prices you pay for progress.

Gilbert K. Chesterton
The federal government has sponsored research that has produced a tomato that is perfect in every respect, except that you can’t eat it. We should make every effort to make sure this disease, often referred to as ‘progress’, doesn’t spread.
The first condition of progress is the removal of censorship.
George Bernard Shaw
The Freedom Caucus represents a pessimistic, divisive, and gerrymandered view of our nation. If America is to make progress, we must step forward from this form of politics – not just because we disagree with this or that policy but because it is fundamentally undemocratic and tyrannical.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Madame de Stael
The humanists’ replacement for religion: work really hard and somehow you’ll either save yourself or you’ll be immortal. Of course, that’s a total joke, and our progress is nothing. There may be progress in technology but there’s no ethical progress whatsoever.
The idea of the sacred is quite simply one of the most conservative notions in any culture, because it seeks to turn other ideas – uncertainty, progress, change – into crimes.
The idealists dream and the dream is told, and the practical men listen and ponder and bring back the truth and apply it to human life, and progress and growth and higher human ideals come into being and so the world moves ever on.
Anna Howard Shaw
The indigenous peoples never had, and still do not have, the place that they should have occupied in the progress and benefits of science and technology, although they represented an important basis for this development.

The making of an Atheist implies a mental stimulation and training which brings into play the primary factors of social progress.
The ‘means of grace’ are such as Bible reading, private prayer, and regularly worshiping God in Church, wherein one hears the Word taught and participates in the Lord’s Supper.

The why is everything and without it, the very suggestion of human progress becomes a cosmic joke.
The wonderful Mozambican people have endured tremendous misery without losing their dignity and their positive outlook on life. Moreover, they have not lost their will to progress and develop. Mozambique is a country where the people never surrendered.

Frances E. Willard
Those men and women are fortunate who are born at a time when a great struggle for human freedom is in progress. It is an added good fortune to have parents who take a personal part in the great movements of their time. I am glad and thankful that this was my case.

With ‘Free Agent Nation,’ I was figuring out how to write a book along with writing the book. Now I think I’ve kind of, sort of figured out how to write a book a little bit better.
