A Quote by Ralph Ellison

And that lie that success was a rising upward.  What a crummy lie they kept us dominated by.  Not only could one travel upward toward success, but you could travel downward as well;  up and down, in retreat as well as advance, crabways and crossways and around in a circle, meeting your old selves coming and going and perahps all at the same time.

Ralph Ellison (1914 - 1994)
