A Quote by Charles Evans Hughes on aim, assumptions, duty, independence, life, opportunity, preparation, progress, reputation, satisfaction, and service

Every young man should aim at independence and should prepare himself for a vocation; above all, he should so manage his life that the steps of his progress are taken without improper aids; that he calls no one master, that he does not win or deserve the reputation of being a tool of others, and that if called to public service he may assume its duties with the satisfaction of knowing that he is free to rise to the height of his opportunity.

A Quote by Charles Dickens on change, nature, progress, seasons, and time

Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress.

A Quote by Charles Bradlaugh on abuse, day, future, hope, life, nations, people, progress, speech, and truth

Without free speech no search for truth is possible; without free speech progress is checked and the nations no longer march forward toward the nobler life which the future holds for man. Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. The abuse dies in a day, but the denial stays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race.

A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on animals, challenge, civilization, clarity, discovery, knowledge, life, men, plants, progress, quality, and science

Is civilization progress? The challenge, I think, is clear; and, as clearly, the final answer will be given not by our amassing of knowledge, or by the discoveries of our science, or by the speed of our aircraft, but by the effect of our civilized activities as a whole have upon the quality of our planet's life-the life of plants and animals as that of men.

A Quote by C. W. De Kiewiet on acting, challenge, chance, experience, future, history, life, men, progress, and vision

A vision of the future has been one of the sustaining marks of the American experience. Without that vision and without the men who devote themselves to realizing that vision, there can be no true American way of life. We must beware of the thoughtless men who proclaim that a particular stage of our social development, or any special set of conditions, is the best that progress can offer. These men would immobilize us in the great stream of history. They would let its great challenges and chances pass us by, . . . forgetting that the American way of life is a way of acting, not a state of inactivity.

A Quote by C. Smith Sumner on competition, day, life, past, progress, and weakness

Life is not a competition with others. In its truest sense it is rivalry with ourselves. We should each day seek to break the record of our yesterday. We should seek each day to live stronger, better, truer lives; each day to master some weakness of yesterday; each day to repair past follies; each day to surpass ourselves. This is, simply, progress.

C. Smith Sumner (1933 -)

A Quote by C. Northcote Parkinson on discovery, perfection, planning, progress, and time

Perfection of planning is a symptom of decay. During a period of exciting discovery or progress, there is no time to plan the perfect headquarters.

A Quote by C. A. Stoddard on good, justice, and progress

Rapidity does not always mean progress, and hurry is akin to waste. The old fable of the hare and the tortoise is just as good now, and just as true, as when it was first written.

A Quote by Bruce Barton on action, change, errors, fear, hope, life, progress, and vision

Action and reaction, ebb and flow, trial and error, change - this is the rhythm of living. Out of our overconfidence, fear; out of our fear, clearer vision, fresh hope. And out of hope, progress.

Bruce Barton (1886 - 1967)
