A Quote by Gaius Petronius Arbiter on confusion, illusions, learning, life, and progress

I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing; and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.

A Quote by Gaius Petronius Arbiter on beginning, confusion, illusions, learning, life, progress, and time

Reorganize To Create the Illusion of Progress. We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization.

A Quote by G. Walter Fiske on challenge, character, conscience, discontent, good, guidance, idealism, imagination, judgment, life, motives, nobility, power, progress, vision, and world

An IDEAL is a vision of the Ought-To-Be - some good to be attained. . . . An ideal is a challenge to a better life. First we must see it in imagination; then we must long to make it a part of ourselves; then we shall guide our conduct by it, we shall live it. An ideal is both light and power. It is light for conscience and motive-power for will. It is a standard by which we judge between right and wrong. When we see a noble ideal lived out in another's life, it gives us a holy discontent with ourselves until we make it our own and it makes more beautiful and strong our own character. This is the way of all progress, as the world grows better, for there is no progress without ideals. . . .

It is not only by the questions we have answered that progress may be measured, but also by those we are still asking.
