Famous quotes containing the words progress and/or stages:
“What makes revolutionists is either self-pity, or indignation for the sake of others, or a sympathetic perception of the dominant undercurrent of progress in things. The nature before us is revolutionist from the direct sense of personal worth,... that pride of life, which to the Greek was a heavenly grace.”
—Walter Pater (18391894)

—Erik H. Erikson (20th century)
