394.  Progress is born of doubt and inquiry.  The Church never doubts, never inquires.  To doubt is heresy, to inquire is to admit that you do not know — the Church does neither.  (Religion & Progress & Doubt)  Robert G Ingersoll

 

 

2,630.  We can judge our progress by the courage of our questions and the depth of our answers, our willingness to embrace what is true rather than what feels good.  (Science & Question & Answer & Truth & Progress)  Carl Sagan

 

 

4,676.  The principle which regulates the existing social relations between the two sexes – the legal subordination of one sex to the other – is wrong in itself, and now one of the chief hindrances to human improvement.  (Woman & Progress & Discrimination)  John Stuart Mill, The Subjection of Women

 

 

2,407.  The history of science, like the history of all human ideas, is a history of irresponsible dreams, of obstinacy, and of error.  But science is one of the very few human activities – perhaps the only one – in which errors are systematically criticized and fairly often, in time, corrected.  This is why we can say that, in science, we often learn from our mistakes, and why we can speak clearly and sensibly about making progress there.  (Science & Errors & Mistakes & Progress)  Karl Popper, Conjectures and Refutations

 

 

2,448.  The scientist has a lot of experience with ignorance and doubt and uncertainty, and this experience is of very great importance, I think.  When a scientist doesn’t know the answer to a problem, he is ignorant.  When he has a hunch as to what the result is, he is uncertain.  And when he is pretty damn sure of what the result is going to be, he is still in some doubt.  We have found it of paramount importance that in order to progress, we must recognize our ignorance and leave room for doubt.  Scientific knowledge is a body of statements of varying degrees of certainty – some most unsure, some nearly sure, but none absolutely certain.  (Science & Doubt & Certainty & Answer & Progress & Knowledge)  Richard Feynman, The Value of Science 1955

 

 

2,651.  We are trying to prove ourselves wrong as quickly as possible, because only in that way can we find progress.  (Science & Wrong & Progress)  Richard P Feynman
 

 

2,503.  Nothing is so fatal to the progress of the human mind as to suppose that our views of science are ultimate; that there are no mysteries in nature, that our triumphs are complete, and that there are no new worlds to conquer.  (Science & Progress)  Humphry Davy, cited David Knight, ‘Humphry Davy: Science and Power’ 1998

 

 

2,596.  We cannot point to a single definitive solution of any one of the problems that confront us – political, economic, social or moral, that is, having to do with the conduct of life.  We are still beginners, and for that reason may hope to improve.  To deride the hope of progress is the ultimate fatuity, the last word in poverty of spirit and meanness of mind.  There is no need to be dismayed by the fact that we cannot yet envisage a definitive solution of our problems, a resting-place beyond which we need not try to go.  (Science & Problem & Life’s Like That & Progress)  Peter Medawar, presidential address BAAS 3rd September 1969

 

 

3,002.  With every passing hour our solar system comes forty-three thousand miles closer to globular cluster 13 in the constellation Hercules, and still there are some misfits who continue to insist that there is no such thing as progress.  (Astronomy & Universe & Solar System & Progress)  Kurt Vonnegut

 

 

3,104.  Without risk there is no progress.  (Space & Progress)  Dr Kevin Fong, Space Shuttle: The Final Frontier, BBC 2011

 

 

4,575.  Man becomes what he is meant to be.  At least he ought to get there.  But most get stuck by unfavourable external conditions, by all sorts of hindrances or pathological destructions.  (Man & Progress & Psychology)  Carl Jung

 

 

5,096.  Labour Unions are the leading force for democratization and progress.  (Trade Unions & Labour & Democracy & Progress)  Noam Chomsky 

 

 

64,818.  The greatest progress is in the sciences that study the simplest systems.  So take, say, physics – greatest progress there.  But one of the reasons is that the physicists have an advantage that no other branch of sciences has.  If something gets too complicated, they hand it to someone else.  (Advantage & Progress & Physics)  Noam Chomsky

 

 

6,226.  The progress of the world can certainly never come at all save by the modified action of the individual beings who compose the world.  (Individual & Progress & World)  George Eliot

 

 

10,146.  The forces holding back progress were fiercely religious.  (Art & Progress & Religion)  Waldemar Januszczak, Baroque! From St Peter’s to St Paul's III, BBC 2013

 

 

20,113.  A black businessman like you?  You represent progress.  (GBH Films & Progress)  American Gangster 2007 ***** starring Denzel Washington & Russell Crowe & Chiwetel Ejiofor & Cuba Gooding jr & Josh Brolin & Ted Levine & Armand Assante & Yul Vazqez & Ruby Dee et al, director Ridley Scott, Crowe to Washington

 

 

34,291.  And our liberty, too, is endangered if we pause for the passing moment, if we rest on our achievements, if we resist the pace of progress.  Change is the law of life.  And those who look only to the past are certain to miss the future.  (Kennedy & Liberty & Progress & Future & Change)  John F Kennedy, June 1963

 

 

56,858.  Slow but sure.  (Proverb & Progress)  Late 17th century proverb

 

 

56,832.  One step at a time.  (Proverb & Progress)  Mid-19th century proverb

 

 

59,578.  All that is human must retrograde if it does not advance.  (Rome & Progress)  Edward Gibbon 1737-94, The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire ch71

 

 

61,430.  I should doubt whether so many people have ever been as well fed, as well read, as bright minded, as curious and as critical as the young are today.  (Civilisation & Progress)  Kenneth Clark, Civilisation: Heroic Materialism 13/13

 

 

61,559.  The European talks of progress because by the aid of a few scientific discoveries he has established a society which has mistaken comfort for civilisation.  (Civilisation & Progress)  Benjamin Disraeli

 

 

62,386.  The secret of getting ahead is getting started.  The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.  (Action & Progress)  Mark Twain

 

 

62,650.  Hypocrisy is a detriment to progress.  There’s always a hidden agenda.  (Agenda & Hypocrisy & Progress)  Larry Flynt

 

 

63,278.  A process which led from the amoeba to man appeared to the philosophers to be obviously a progress –  though whether the amoeba would agree with this opinion is not known.  (Amoeba & Progress)  Bertrand Russell

 

 

66,585.  Change is one thing, progress is another.  ‘Change’ is scientific, ‘progress is ethical’; ‘change’ is indubitable, whereas progress is a matter of controversy.  (Change & Progress)  Bertrand Russell, Unpopular Essays
