Progress quotes
Progress might have been all right once but it has gone on too long.

- Ogden Nash
Progress always involves risk; you can't steal second base and keep your foot on first.

- Wilcox, Frederick
Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible.

- Frank Zappa
Men cling passionately to old traditions and display intense reluctance to modify customary modes of behavior, as innovators at all times have found to their cost. The dead-weight of conservatism, largely a lazy and cowardly distaste for the strenuous and painful activity of real thinking, has undoubtedly retarded human progress...

- V. Gordon Childe
Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.

- Ford, Henry
Problems are the price of progress. Don't bring me anything but trouble. Good news weakens me.

- Kettering, Charles F.
The heart will cry out at times, Oh! blissful future! Oh, dreary present! But let us not repine. What is dreary need not be barren. Nothing need be barren to those who view all things in their real light, as links in the great chain of progression both for themselves and for the Universe. To us all Time should seem so full of life: every moment the grave and the father of unnumbered events and designs in heaven and earth, and the mind of our God Himself--all things moving smoothly and surely in spite of apparent checks and disappointments towards the appointed end.

- Letters and Memories. 1844.
Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience.

- George Santayana
The concept of progress acts as a protective mechanism to shield us from the terrors of the future.

- Frank Herbert
I think it is often easier to make progress on mega-ambitious dreams. Since no one else is crazy enough to do it, you have little competition. In fact, there are so few people this crazy that I feel like I know them all by first name.

- Larry Page
The world is moving so fast now-a-days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.

- Hubbard, Elbert
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.

- Kennedy, Robert F.
At the present rate of progress, it is almost impossible to imagine any technical feat that cannot be achieved - if it can be achieved at all - within the next few hundred years.

- Arthur C. Clarke
I have been photographing our toilet, that glossy enameled receptacle of extraordinary beauty. Here was every sensuous curve of the human figure divine but minus the imperfections. Never did the Greeks reach a more significant consummation to their culture, and it somehow reminded me, in the glory of its chaste convulsions and in its swelling, sweeping, forward movement of finely progressing contours, of the Victory of Samothrace.

- Weston, Edward
I am one of those who believe that spiritual progress is a rule of human life, but the approach to perfection is slow and painful. If a woman elevates herself in one respect and is retarded in another, it is because the rough trail that leads to the mountain peak is not free of ambushes of thieves and lairs of wolves.

- Kahlil Gibran
In a progressive country change is constant; ...change... is inevitable.

- Benjamin Disraeli
There is hardly such a thing as a war in which it makes no difference who wins. Nearly always one side stands more or less for progress, the other side more or less for reaction.

- Orwell, George
One thing we know for sure is that change is certain, progress is not.

- Hilary Clinton
There is no law of progress. Our future is in our own hands, to make or to mar. It will be an uphill fight to the end, and would we have it otherwise? Let no one suppose that evolution will ever exempt us from struggles.'You forget,'said the Devil, with a chuckle,'that I have been evolving too.'

- William Ralph Inge
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.

- James Bryant Conant
