Famous quotes containing the word advance:

    You can’t say that civilization don’t advance ... for in every war they kill you a new way.
    Will Rogers (1879–1935)

    Behind every individual closes organization; before him opens liberty,—the Better, the Best. The first and worse races are dead. The second and imperfect races are dying out, or remain for the maturing of the higher. In the latest race, in man, every generosity, every new perception, the love and praise he extorts from his fellows, are certificates of advance out of fate into freedom.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    A society person who is enthusiastic about modern painting or Truman Capote is already half a traitor to his class. It is middle-class people who, quite mistakenly, imagine that a lively pursuit of the latest in reading and painting will advance their status in the world.
    Mary McCarthy (1912–1989)
