"Progress for the sake of progress must be discouraged.
Let us preserve what must be preserved and prune practices that ought to be prohibited!”
---Dolores Umbridge, (R) Head Inquisitor, and torturer of small children, Hogwarts.
"I will have order ! "
"For the greater good. I want to do what must be done."
"...deep down you know that you deserve to be punished . Don't you...?"
"I am sorry, dear, but to question my practices is to question the Ministry,
and by extension,
the Minister himself. I am a tolerant woman, but the one thing I will not stand for is disloyalty."
"It is the view of the Ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be sufficient
to get you through your examinations, which after all, is what school is all about."
"You know, I really hate children."
"Please, tell them I mean no harm." ---Dolores Umbridge, (R) Head Inquisitor, Hogwarts.
"Sorry, Professor, but I must not tell lies."-Harry Potter (D)
"Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our
progress in education.
The human mind is our fundemental resource."
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
"Change is scientific, progress is ethical; change is indubitable,
whereas progress is a matter of controversy."
"Change is the parent of progress."
Progress is the stride of God.
The grandest of all laws is the law of progressive development.
Under it, in the wide sweep of things, men grow wiser as they grow older, and societies better.
Christian Nevell Bovee
The history of progress is written in the blood of men and
women who have dared
to espouse an unpopular cause, as, for instance, the black man's right to his body,
or woman's right to her soul.
There are three classes of men; the retrograde, the stationary and the progressive.
