A Quote by Franklin Delano Roosevelt on progress

The test of our progress is not whether we add to the abundance of those who have much. It is whether we provide enough to those who have little.

A Quote by Frank Knox on belief, civilization, education, experience, facts, heart, justice, learning, liberals, men, mercy, progress, quality, thought, tolerance, women, and work

I believe with all my heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think, we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today, with all the progress we have made in liberal thought, the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly toward these objectives must be learned by experience.

A Quote by Francis M. Lyman on children, clarity, conscience, departure, husbands, love, needs, parenthood, preparation, progress, sorrow, soul, tears, time, wives, and work

We mourn; we sorrow for our loved ones that go - our wives, our husbands, our children, our parents; we sorrow for them; and it is well and proper that we should moum for them and shed tears for the loss, for it is our loss; but it is their gain, for it is in the march of progress, advancement and development. It will be all right when our time comes, when we have finished our work and accomplished what the Lord required of us. If we are prepared, we need not be afraid to go, for it will be one of the most pleasant sensations that ever comes to the soul of man, whenever he departs, if he can go with a clear conscience into the presence of the Lord.

Francis M. Lyman (1840 - 1916)

A Quote by Felix E. Schelling on education, genius, individuality, inequality, mediocrity, progress, success, superiority, talent, and world

True education makes for inequality; the inequality of individuality, the inequality of success, the glorious inequality of talent, of genius; for inequality, not mediocrity, individual superiority, not standardization, is the measure of the progress of the world

A Quote by F. D. Maurice on belief, god, judgment, love, progress, spirit, and words

Of all the spirits, I believe the spirit of judging is the worst, and it has had the rule of me, I cannot tell you how dreadfully and how long. . . . This, I find has more hindered my progress in love and gentleness than all things else. I never knew what the words, "Judge not that ye be not judged," meant before; now they seem to me some of the most awful, necessary, and beautiful in the whole Word of God.

F. D. Maurice

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on achievement, cities, country, feeling, gratitude, nations, progress, and travel

I never travel across this great nation without experiencing a feeling of gratitude and thanksgiving for all that we have and are. As I see its broad fruitful farms, its humming factories, its gleaming cities, certainly it is easy to realize that we have achieved unequaled material progress in this great country.

Ezra Taft Benson (1899 - 1994)

A Quote by Eugene Victor Debs on civilization, discontent, intelligence, life, progress, and satisfaction

If it had not been for the discontent of a few fellows who had not been satisfied with their conditions, you would still be living in caves. Intelligent discontent is the mainspring of civilization. Progress is born of agitation. It is agitation or stagnation.

A Quote by Emma Goldman on economics, effort, liberty, minorities, politics, progress, religion, and science

Every effort for progress, for enlightenment, for science, for religious, political, and economic liberty, emanates from the minority, and not from the mass.

Emma Goldman (1869 - 1940)
