What is human development?

Famous quotes containing the words development and/or human:

    Zerelda G. Wallace (1817–1901)

    If therefore my work is negative, irreligious, atheistic, let it be remembered that atheism—at least in the sense of this work—is the secret of religion itself; that religion itself, not indeed on the surface, but fundamentally, not in intention or according to its own supposition, but in its heart, in its essence, believes in nothing else than the truth and divinity of human nature.
    Ludwig Feuerbach (1804–1872)
