The concept of progress acts as a protective mechanism to shield us from the terrors of the future.
by Frank Herbert
"Men get tired of everything, of heaven no less than of hell; and that all history is nothing but a record of the oscillations of the world between these two extremes. An epoch is but a swing of the pendulum; and each generation thinks the world is progressing because it is always moving."
~ Man And Superman
by George Bernard Shaw
Progress was a labyrinth . . . people plunging blindly in and then rushing wildly back, shouting that they had found it.
~ This Side of Paradise
by F. Scott Fitzgerald
"Discontent is the first step in the progress of a man or a nation."
~ A Woman of No Importance
by Oscar Wilde
