Sir Winston Churchill

Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

George Bernard Shaw

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Progress Energy has long been recognized as a leader in the areas of corporate governance, transparency, board independence and accountability. We believe these proposals are consistent with those same high standards.

It is not strange ... to mistake change for progress.

We're making excellent progress. It was a very informative meeting and it was good for us to be able to hear from residents that live in both the north and south ends of the city. It was very interesting to hear what they had to say.

David Scurto

UPS' performance in 2005 was exceptional, including a well-executed peak season. All of our people pulled together to achieve the growth and financial goals we set for ourselves. Our momentum accelerated during each quarter of 2005 and we look forward to more progress in 2006.

Margarita Carrillo

'Growth' and 'progress' are among the key words in our national vocabulary. But modern man now carries Strontium 90 in his bones ... DDT in his fat, asbestos in his lungs. A little more of this 'progress' and 'growth,' and this man will be dead.

Morris K. Udall

We've made progress. We're taking it step by step.

The news in general was still favorable, but the focus is on what's next. People aren't only looking at the progress in the war in Iraq, they're starting to think about what's going to come after.

Nick Bennenbroek

I don't want to read that any more. [Getting past .500] is important to me, but I don't want to overstate its importance. Whether we finish 82-80 or 80-82, there were gains this year. I think there has been a lot of progress and our fans should be feeling good about where we're going for 2006.

Rick Schlesinger

They are all going to reopen as something, but what they are going to be is still a work in progress.

I'm pretty delighted with what's going on, but I'm also still very concerned. He's a long way from being healthy. When they move him up to the surgical floor, I'll be feeling a lot better.

Terry Greene

We made so much progress over the year, going from No. 26 in the preseason all the way to the final eight. But we should have had it. None of that means anything unless we're up there with the final four.

Mike Burke

We are pleased with our continued progress in meeting strategic goals and continue to see good customer flows across many business lines, ... It is clear, however, that the increasingly weak economic environment is making it difficult for our efforts to show up on the bottom line.

Red Schoendienst

But no concrete progress has been made in the case.

Ajay Kumar

We've seen a lot of progress.

Ron Slaymaker

The mid-cap area of the market has been pretty strong so I think you might see a change of emphasis away from mid-cap to large-cap in 2006. I think the market should make progress somewhere in the 5-10 percent range.

David Cumming

Progress was definitely made. There are things happening right now bringing about a this (renewed) awareness, but it's going to take much, much more.

Nettie Coad

The question of intergenerational progress is, 'Are you doing better than your parents? Often when immigrants come, one of the reasons is so that their children will have better lives, and having a better life in California and the U.S. is often associated with more education.

Deborah Reed

I know how he feels now, and he knows how I feel. We know we're both doing pretty well. It's one of those things that we both hope we don't have setbacks and can keep going forward and make progress.

Change is scientific, progress is ethical; change is indubitable, whereas progress is a matter of controversy.

Bertrand Russell

I think they've made more progress on product coverage than anything else.

Cass Johnson

We're off to a good start with first quarter results and very good progress on integration activity.

Sprint Nextel Corp

Henrik Larsson

The height of progress, when people's propensity to strive for what is dispensable begins to interfere with what is indispensable, is called luxury.

Immanuel Kant

Kathy Purdy

We thought we needed a publication base for works in progress that deserved some light at this point, or for works that didn't fit other publication categories.

Bruce Jackson

Tom Stoppard

Despite the sea of bad news lately in sector-wide demand, we see key progress at Oracle with its long-troubled 11i applications suite.

Bob Austrian

We are gathering important evidence and following a number of significant lines of inquiry. I am pleased with progress and remain confident that we will catch those responsible.

His injuries have impeded his progress a little, but you never hear him complain about them. He is going to be ready to go fairly soon and will show what he is made of.

Robert Arballo

I'm regretful right now that there does not appear to be any progress made toward that goal. When does that conversation begin?

Wayne Gray

All I would say is the talks are constructive and progress has been made. But I'm not going to speculate on how close an agreement is. In my experience in talks like these, close and near are awfully subjective terms.

Paul Krell

They're showing progress. They promised us they would cut costs.

Stephen Kamman

You have to present documentation of how you meet the core areas, ... It then goes through a committee, which evaluates progress of who did best in each overall area.

James Irwin

It hurt [Saturday] enough that I couldn't play anymore. Before the Rangers game I didn't actually feel it at all. I knew it was there but I felt good. I thought I was making progress with the groin, but unfortunately I wasn't. The thing is with the groin, you have to be 95 or 100 percent to play, that's just the way it is.

Petr Nedved

Movement isn't progress.

Thomas Leonard

We're making good progress on finalizing the design.

The rumors of Germany's death have been exaggerated. We've really made lots of progress, and we've gotten off to a good start in 2006.

Norbert Walter

Knowing a person's HIV subtype is important for the management of the infection because the disease can progress more rapidly in those infected with subtype D … than in those with other subtypes.

Oliver Laeyendecker

The implication of not knowing exactly how many species there are is that we can't tell if we are actually making progress on the 2010 target.

Jeff Mcneely

The news here for us is the progress, the trend line, the strong upward tilt of the numbers.

Michael Casserly

I think the most important message there is those kind of partnerships work. If this community and this broader community of the central Basin feels that that is what it wants to do to help progress, then that's what will happen. But it will be up to the group.

Karen Bonaudi

There's been a lot of progress between me and Mike. When I came in last year, he didn't know how fast I was and I didn't know how far he could throw it.

Roddy White

Simon is continuing to make progress in his recovery from injury and we will give him as much time as he needs in order to prove his fitness.

The progress is such that we can have a provisional separation.

Robert Schulz

Progress was slow at first, but the evidence is mounting that restoration is working.

Michael Hendricks

We clearly still have some work to do and fair gaps to compensate. We see some progress in 2006, but this will be multiyear progress.

Brady Dougan

My impression is that progress, if there will be progress, will need time. But we must not consider words which if interpreted literally might induce pessimism as barring future developments.

Antonio Martino

They have made remarkable progress.

Shinji Tanimura

Every clique is a refuge for incompetence. It fosters corruption and disloyalty, it begets cowardice, and consequently is a burden upon and a drawback to the progress of the country. Its instincts and actions are those of the pack.

Madame Chiang Kai shek

Talks are constructive, and progress is being made.

Paul Krell

Coach has given me confidence to get out there and play. It's just been a matter of time before I've been able to turn it on and get comfortable out there on the court. I think I've showed a lot of progress to this point.

Rashad Mccants

The Space 2 Studio is an environment for teens to be comfortable in. They can continue with a work in progress or try out a new medium.

Jenn Cram

By the end of the year, I hope the kids will think some of the ideas I had were good and that they are happy with the progress they've made. We're going to try and compete as well as we can. By the time the sectional comes around, we'll see what we can do.

Ian Battles

Today's settlement is positive proof of the continued progress we are achieving in the grain industry, through the co-operative enforcement efforts of federal, state and local agencies.

Kelly Johnson

I think we're making some progress but tonight we ran out of steam in the third period.

Scott Sutton

I think in addition to the fact that there's no progress to report, I think the MTA is very concerned that we are down to the wire. Obviously the MTA does not have any deadline on these talks. We have said we will continue to negotiate for as long as it's fruitful.

Gary Dellaverson

We've made progress, but obviously the work is not done.

Mark Siegel

The mean level of lead in children in the late 1970s was 15, something that would trigger an intervention today. By 2003, it was down to 1.6. We still have a ways to go, but we continue to make great progress.

Dan Symonik

The progress Mike Rogers bill is making in Congress is the closest we've ever been to letting states have a voice on foreign trash flow.

David Palsrok

Despite plenty of progress, tissue engineering has not achieved tremendous clinical success or commercial success.

David Williams

We know we have to abide by the law, but this is still a tough thing to do. I know it's progress, but it's hard for a small community like ours.

Brandon Hamilton

While it's true that power is being restored and schools are being painted and progress is being made.

Kathleen Carroll

There's been significant progress, but that progress is not quite enough.

Masahiro Kawai

We need to scale up what exists in Africa, in various parts of Asia. There has been remarkable progress in China and that's a reflection of the booming economy there, there's been less of that progress elsewhere.

Ray Wilkins

We can never be totally 100 percent prepared. But we're making extraordinary progress over the past year.

Jonathan Epstein

He's up and walking around a little bit. He's doing so much better. We are very happy with the progress and grateful for the support.

Heidi Jasso

I am satisfied with the progress of most land-based operations. Some were obviously expected to take a long time to produce profits.

Ivan Clark

My colleagues at ICC are pleasantly surprised at the progress. They were here in December and the difference in the quality of the workmanship since then has been extraordinary, especially with the weather conditions Guyana has had to face.

Don Lockerbie

The zoning ordinance is always a work in progress and is amended from time to time and will be amended in the future. After so many years of amendments you have a document that is inconsistent. At some places it contradicts itself.

Steve Owen

It was an interesting experience. We made a lot of progress last year and ended up winning states.

Jessica Haight

We made some progress and agreed to arrive at a conclusion quickly. We could set a direction to our discussion and share a common ground.

Fukushiro Nukaga

What I focus on is not the ribbons and the trophies but the progress the girls make as athletes and people, developing a respect for the sport and for the other athletes. To me, that's what coaching is all about.

Sarah Robinson

Despite our best efforts we were not able to reach a broader agreement. The US remains optimistic that we can continue to make progress on the remaining issues.

David Spooner

The good news is that there's been a lot of compliance with requirements in terms of trial registration. It's good progress and we're encouraged by that, but there's a long way to go.

Dr. Jeffrey Drazen

We have not advanced the process much further. We are desperately anxious to avert a catastrophe for the airline. We have made some progress but not sufficient to regard a settlement as imminent.

We continue to make considerable progress in our anti-terrorism and force protection program, ... Our people are better protected today than in the past.

Henry Shelton

Thanks to the cost reductions we have achieved and the competitiveness of our products, we're making steady progress.

Curt Johansen

We need to see how things progress before we make those sort of predictions or scenarios.

Ross Brawn

Every little bit of progress from Cameron is exciting news. He's getting some strength back now, regaining some motor skills and he's pushing himself. Cameron is a determined kid.

Mike Houston
