      The chief obstacle to the progress of the human race is the human race.

      Progress might have been all right once, but it has gone on too long.

      All progress is based upon a universal innate11 desire on the part of every organism to live beyond its income.
      Samuel Butler (1835 - 1902), Notebooks, 1912
      Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.
      Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
      Progress is the product of human agency. Things get better because we make them better. Things go wrong when we get too comfortable, when we fail to take risks or seize opportunities.
      Susan Rice, Stanford University Commencement, 2010
