Famous quotes containing the word advance:

    To receive applause for works which do not demand all our powers hinders our advance towards a perfecting of our spirit. It usually means that thereafter we stand still.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    Some ne’er advance a judgment of their own,
    But catch the spreading notion of the town;
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    Let that which stood in front go behind,
    Let that which was behind advance to the front,
    Let bigots, fools, unclean persons, offer new propositions,
    Let the old propositions be postponed.
    Walt Whitman (1819–1892)
