Ludwig von Mises
I look at the progressive policies that have marginalized black dads. They push them to the side and say, ‘You’re not needed.’ Uncle Sam is going to be the dad: he’s going to provide for the kids; he’s going to feed the kids.
David A. Clarke, Jr.
A heretic is a man who sees with his own eyes
Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
The history of modern art is also the history of the progressive loss of art’s audience. Art has increasingly become the concern of the artist and the bafflement of the public.

Barack Obama

Brian D. McLaren
At every crossroad on the way that leads to the future, each progressive spirit is opposed by a thousand men appointed to guard the past.

There’s a false choice being put forward by some Democrats now. Either we double-down on our progressive values, or we go out there and talk about the middle class and the working class. I’ve never found them inconsistent. They go together.
Joe Biden
By bells and many other similar techniques they (schools) teach that
nothing is worth finishing. The gross error of this is progressive: if

either. Few children are so thick-skulled they miss the point.
John Taylor Gatto
You can’t do progressive government from the inside. You have to rally those outsiders and make them a force.

I think we should allow for schools within schools, where 100 out of 500 kids may be organized by the way they work and what they do, and what they do often is more progressive. I would like to see a lot of kids of different ages, maybe even some adults, work together on a project.
Seymour Papert
I choose now to live in Berkeley, California, which is a progressive refuge, despite the fact that I can’t afford to buy a house here. It’s important to me that my children grow up in a place where everything is questioned, examined and debated.

Vilfredo Pareto
Unless our conception of patriotism is progressive, it cannot hope to embody the real affection and the real interest of the nation.

I’ve been writing a book called The Economics of Innocent Fraud. I published part of it already in The Progressive (“Free Market Fraud,” January 1999). But I’ve been interrupted these last few months. It deals with all of the things we do, in an innocent way, to cover up the truth.
John Kenneth Galbraith
The progressive movement against the war of occupation in Iraq is a reason for hope, as is resistance to free trade agreements in Latin America. Those are moments that we have to celebrate: that people still find the resolve and energy to resist

Rich Mullins
The crisis of black politics can only be resolved through the development of multiclass, multiracial, progressive political structures.

Bernie Sanders
I think Hollywood is incredibly segregated. I’ve never seen any place like it. The gatekeepers who are the most progressive activists inspired to make the world better… they’re better people, right? They’re segregated. It’s self segregated in some cases, but there’s nobody Black in charge of anything in Hollywood.
Russell Simmons
You do have an effect on the universe. If you think positive thoughts, if you are happy and progressive, then that energy affects everyone on the whole planet, in subtle ways, perhaps, but it does.

Linda Sarsour
I suppose people hadn’t really thought each decade should have its own character and be different from the others till the 1920s, although I remember in a nineteenth-century Russian novel someone remarked that a character was a typical man of the 1830s – progressive and an atheist.

Paul Bremer
Like it or not, I’ve come to appreciate soccer. Any kid can play, which fits with the inclusive agenda of progressive schools. Although the corollary to ‘any kid can play’ is that every kid must play because there is an iron grip to the warm hug of progressive inclusionism.
P. J. O’Rourke
The one simple lesson to draw from President Obama’s legacy: do not start off with a compromise. They won’t meet you in the middle. Instead, what we need is an unapologetic progressive leader.

Colin Powell
Here, we have female directors and producers; in fact, one whole channel is run by a woman. Pakistani TV is progressive, and hence, characters that are shown are of today as well.
Umera Ahmad

Michael Moore
I joined the Green Party because I believe it to be the most progressive party in Canadian politics and offering the most progressive policies and to be constantly working toward a more just and equitable society.

Michelle Malkin
Nursing is a progressive art such that to stand still is to go backwards.
Florence Nightingale

The great scientific achievements are research programmes which can be evaluated in terms of progressive and degenerative problemshifts; and scientific revolutions consist of one research programme superceding (overtaking in progress) another. This methodology offers a new rational reconstruction of science.
Imre Lakatos
I’m also for gay marriage, because I say they have every right to be just as miserable as the rest of us. Love is bigger than government. And Texas, by the way, has a very progressive law about gay couples adopting kids. We just won’t let them get married. So that’s not common sense.
Kinky Friedman
I am proud to be a progressive.
Gretchen Whitmer
In the most civilized and progressive countries freedom of discussion is recognized as a fundamental principle.

Jinkx Monsoon
Jazz is part folk art, part progressive art.
Mulgrew Miller

Southeast Asia is an area in which there is a form of Islam which is both devout and progressive, and therefore to be supported. It’s an area in which I see a congruence of American interests and local interests: to have tolerant societies and become more prosperous.
Dennis C. Blair
Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.
Prohibiting any words not approved of as ‘politically correct’ – that’s not progressive. Putting ‘trigger warnings’ on books, movies, music, anything that might offend people – that’s not progressive, either.
Dave Rubin
There was a time when the term liberal had been so thoroughly demonized by those on the right that I remember consciously choosing to call myself a progressive in order to evade the stigma. But there was no change in my perspective that accompanied it.
Bret Weinstein
As a father of four, I want our children to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that are the fruit of progressive values.
Stephen Pagliuca
I think on-stage nudity is disgusting, shameful and damaging to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body, it would be artistic, tasteful, patriotic and a progressive religious experience.
Shelley Winters
I think he’s [Louis Brandeis] a great model for progressive justices today who want to answer the originalists. It’s not that the original paradigm cases are irrelevant, but you have to focus on the values the framers were trying to protect, not on the means with which those values were invaded in the 18th century.
Jeffrey Rosen
It’s important for the progressive youth to remember that the agenda you set today is the agenda that will matter tomorrow. If you are engaged and active, it means you are one of the lucky ones and you are awake. Most people are not there yet.
Darryl Pinckney
The modern progressive movement believes that dissenting language is objectionable, which then removes the brakes between anger and violence.
Greg Gutfeld
There is no moral distinction between the act of a pickpocket and the progressive income tax.
Leonard Read
She [Hillary Clinton] is the epitome of the progressive – the secular progressive movement. And she counts on the fact that people are uninformed, the Alinsky Model, taking advantage of useful idiots.
Benjamin Carson
I define sustainable history as a durable progressive trajectory in which the quality of life on this planet or other planets is premised on the guarantee of human dignity for all at all times and under all circumstances.
Nayef Al-Rodhan
Stiffening the spine of progressive members of Congress is crucial.
Ezra G. Levin
I mean there’s certainly a lot of progressive rock and metal that exists at the underground level, which has its own vitality, as it should. But it seems to have lost its ability to really charge up the hill.
Billy Corgan
I feel like a lot of teenagers have typically been played by 25 year olds, and even 30 year olds. It’s nice that I’m playing a little bit more to my age, although from 15 to 19 are pretty progressive years.
Eliza Scanlen
A holistic solution to income inequality is going to take a lot of work, but every time you prove that one of the strands is achievable and that it has a positive impact on people’s lives you take another step towards proving the bigger theory of the case.
Bill de Blasio
Every piece of progressive social legislation passed by Congress in the 20th century bears a union label.
George Meany
As you may know, I’m the co-founder of a political organization called Real Justice. Our goal is to help elect progressive, reform-minded prosecutors and district attorneys that are committed to ending mass incarceration.
Shaun King
Any film that you see that has any progressive spirits that is made by any people of color or a woman is a triumph in and of itself. Whether you agree with it or not. Something that comes with some point of view and some personal perspective from a woman or a person of color is a unicorn.
Ava DuVernay
The terms ‘progressive’ and ‘liberal’ have virtually nothing to do with each other anymore. And if you are a classical liberal, you certainly aren’t a leftist.
Dave Rubin
I am a progressive who gets things done. And the root of that word, progressive, is progress.
Hillary Clinton
We have this really retro vibe and style of songwriting and, personally, I wasn’t embracing the current state of music until I fell in love with hip-hop. It felt good to suddenly embrace where music was headed, and I think hip-hop is the best at that, because it feels so progressive and everybody wants to be the best.
Nate Ruess
We shall never know how many acts of cowardice have been motivated by the fear of appearing not sufficiently progressive.
Charles Peguy
Progressive societies outgrow institutions as children outgrow clothes.
Henry George
Journalism is what maintains democracy. It’s the force for progressive social change.
Andrew Vachss
It’s the progressive left in this country that has viciously and systematically slimed female conservatives for their beliefs. We have the well-worn battle scars to prove it.
Michelle Malkin
I know we play a part in the story of progressive music, but for us those influences are the real fathers, the ones that we were interested in.
John Petrucci
If the world ran the way a crew runs a set, we’d have a better, more progressive world.
Steven Spielberg
I believe in a progressive tax structure that fairly distributes the costs of government in a way that those of us fortunate to have more, carry more of the burden.
Brad Schneider
I’ve always been interested in working with top athletes, athletes who are pushing the edge and are really progressive in the outdoor space and adventure world.
Jimmy Chin
I have plenty of relationships with progressive groups. And I’ve run as a progressive before it was cool to do so.
John Fetterman
Surrounding yourself with a great team that is really discerning and not pushing or rushing into a certain direction that doesn’t seem like a progressive flow is really important.
AJ Michalka
Progressive economic policies lead to a sustainable economy.
Keith Ellison
Those who are ready to sacrifice freedom for security ultimately will lose both.
Abraham Lincoln
We who are liberal and progressive know that the poor are our equals in every sense except that of being equal to us.
Lionel Trilling
The whole order of nature evinces a progressive march towards a higher life.
H. P. Blavatsky
I think that good things will happen in the Middle East, in Israel, and to American progressive Jewry only if we work together to save a progressive Israel that progressive Americans can have affinity with again.
Ari Shavit
I think hip-hop can be prophetic and progressive, and at the same time, the dominant forms tend to be homophobic, misogynistic and something that we need to critically call into question.
Cornel West
I think the American Dream should be about a greater progressive legislation that allows for what I call a necessary future world of cooperational humanism.
Bobby Seale
That eugenics was part of the progressive agenda is one of the most heavily-airbrushed features of history.
Arnold Kling
I want to be really proactive in working with the progressive business community in Australia and also reaching out to rural and regional Australia in order to assist in the sustainability crisis and the food security crisis.
Christine Milne
Democracy is an objective. Democratization is a process. Democratization serves the cause of peace because it offers the possibility of justice and of progressive change without force.
Boutros Boutros-Ghali
Yeah, I am in favor of migration. But I am also in favor of education. But at the same time, I am in favor of progressive taxation. I think we need all of this. I think we don’t have to choose one.
Thomas Piketty
With a progressive issue, it was always a monkey that was chasing me down. I had a great fear of losing my hearing. In my gut, I always knew that it was going to happen. I was just hoping that it would happen when I was 50 and not when I was 18.
Mandy Harvey
Lack of rule of law is the main reason Pakistan could not join the ranks of progressive nations.
Imran Khan
My father was a progressive farmer, and was always ready to lay aside an old plough if he could replace it with one better constructed for its work. All through life, I have ever been ready to buy a better plough.
Andrew Taylor Still
Design firms and progressive companies rely on many of the same tools: rapid prototyping, observational research, creative thinking, collaborative work environments, and multidisciplinary teams.
Tahl Raz
We who live in free market societies believe that growth and prosperity, and ultimately human fulfillment are created from the bottom up, not the government down.
Ronald Reagan
I’m your typical highly educated, progressive white dude. I’ve lived my life resisting racism both within myself and in the society around me.
Mark Manson
The establishment of free trade agreements can be a critical and progressive step towards greater economic integration, and continues to become more valuable in an increasingly global world.
Dan Kildee
I would absolutely classify as being incredibly progressive the fact that I am the third female prime minister.
Jacinda Ardern
What you do by having an income tax rate reduction across the board, you really provide great incentives for people to work, produce, and increase output. So I would support a carbon tax in replacement for a progressive income tax.
Arthur Laffer
Groups like Black Lives Matter, blessed by the progressive Left and most recently our own President Obama, need to be exposed and condemned for their true aims: revolution.
David A. Clarke, Jr.
The progressive and liberal mindset believes that to every problem there is a Washington, D.C., solution.
Jeb Bush
I’m a huge classics fan. I love Ernest Hemingway and J. D. Salinger. I’m that guy who rereads a book before I read newer stuff, which is probably not all that progressive, and it’s not really going to make me a better reader.
John Krasinski
I just love Fortitude Valley, I love all of it. It is such a progressive hub, it feels like the East Village of New York.
Jessica Origliasso
[Obamacare] has to be enforced because nobody wants it. This is the nature of progressive government they don’t care if it’s not good for you. It’s good for them.
Greg Gutfeld
What history taught me is that societies are not static and that the straight line of progressive ideals – this thinking we have that a society will just magically become more egalitarian over time – is patently false.
Kameron Hurley
Historically the mainstream media has never been particularly friendly to any socially progressive ideas.
Janeane Garofalo
Do not underestimate me. I believe that as a woman, a progressive, and a Minnesotan, I have a lot to contribute and I am so ready to do that work.
Tina Smith
We cannot leap into world government through one quick step… The precondition for eventual and genuine globalization is progressive regionalization because by that we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
Every piece has its own identity which we develop by the rule ‘We know no limits.’ We follow the inspiration of the moment and don’t worry if what we’re playing is alternative, progressive or fusion rock.
Page McConnell
People do not realize that Alzheimer’s is not old age. It is a progressive and fatal disease, and staggering amounts of people develop Alzheimer’s every day.
Melina Kanakaredes
I would say practical progressive, which means that the Republican party or any political party has got to recognize the problems of a growing and complex industrial civilization. And I don’t think the Republican party is really wide awake to that.
Alf Landon
I have been part of ‘Gehraiyaan’ and I must say it is great to be part of pocket-content for the only reason that the feedback is instant. Also, the audience is evolved and mature enough to embrace bold and progressive content.
Vatsal Sheth
Momentum, in literary mosaic, derives not from narrative but from the subtle, progressive buildup of thematic resonances.
David Shields
These times are too progressive. Everything has changed too fast. Railroads and telegraphs and kerosene and coal stoves — they’re good to have but the trouble is, folks get to depend on ’em.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
C. S. Lewis
Keith Ellison is the future of the Democratic Party, the future of the progressive movement.
Van Jones
The fierce willingness to repudiate domination in a holistic manner is the starting point for progressive cultural revolution.

As a liberal and progressive, I abhor the notion of conflict and bloodshed and very much want to find a diplomatic solution to the Iran nuclear issue.
Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
As long as you’re having fun and being positive and progressive, I’m going to say you’re living a Zumbao lifestyle.
I am truly grateful to have the support of Governor Patrick, a progressive champion and a leader on issues that truly impact the lives of our constituents.
Michael Capuano
A certain number of Americans are already in Peking and most of us here feel that it would be very useful for the United States and especially for the Left-wing progressive movement in the United States if groups of students such as you mention could make a tour of China.
Anna Louise Strong
We have to continue our progressive struggle and defeat the conspiracies of dictatorship.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari
The perception in the Arab world now is that we are having secularists against Islamists, and that’s it. So the secularists are progressive; the Islamists are reactionary, conservative. This perception is wrong.
Tariq Ramadan
It’s certainly a lot more difficult to get a project made if you’re talking about something progressive. That’s just the nature of the industry.
Tim Robbins
Sometimes, with more progressive songs, you lose that feel somewhere along the line, but ‘This Means War’ never quits – the energy is always there.
Synyster Gates
I was the candidate first time a Green or any progressive third party has ever been in a national televised debate. I was in five of them. And the response from the public was overwhelming.
Peter Camejo
Addiction is a crazy disease. It’s a progressive disease when it’s not dealt with; it don’t care who it takes, and it takes it all. You wind up losing your house, your home, your reputation.
Marty Stuart
The First Amendment has erected a wall between church and state. That wall must be kept high and impregnable. We could not approve the slightest breach.
Hugo Black
I am a Peronist. I am growing the branches of progressive Peronist liberalism.
Alberto Fernandez
There’s a progressive arc in the sound of ‘Black Sands’ creation. The title track was the first piece in place. Then the other live-sounding tracks like ‘Animals’ and ‘El Toro.’
Marx and Engels openly declared that the progressive income tax and the death tax are ‘economically untenable’ and that they advocated them only because ‘they necessitate further inroads’ upon the capitalist system and are ‘unavoidable’ as a means of bringing about socialism.
Ludwig von Mises
I was essentially trained by World War II vets who combined a progressive view of life with a deep distrust of anything authoritarian.
Sander Levin
We have a unique chance to heal divisions, give everyone a stake in the future and set an example as the most creative, innovative and progressive country in the world.
Michael Gove
I don’t even know what progressive is anymore, to be honest!
Myles Kennedy
When we came out, the kind of music that was popular was Nirvana, Soundgarden and Alice In Chains, all that stuff. That was when we released our second album, ‘Images And Words’, and it was something people werent used to hearing maybe, and it sort of rose above all that somehow, being progressive, or whatever.
John Petrucci
Men can know more than their ancestors did if they start with a knowledge of what their ancestors had already learned….That is why a society can be progressive only if it conserves its traditions.
Walter Lippmann
To accept with unquestioning faith, or to refuse to reconsider any particular view held by the Church in the past, is as unreasonable as it is unsafe. The faith of the Church is a progressive affair.
George Trumbull Ladd
There’s no actual title. Except sometimes ‘wife of the prime minister,’ which, you know, we could be a little more progressive.
Sophie Gregoire Trudeau
The “October Revolution” is a myth generated by the winners, the Bolsheviks, and swallowed whole by progressive circles in the West.
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
In an American context, let’s say gay rights or marriage policy – that’s a progressive thing. I understand that in an American context.
Trevor Noah
When we were starting out, there was no “label” as progressive rock – it didn’t exist … so we were just a rock band.
Phil Ehart
It’s a shame that gays who ought to be pushing boundaries have been domesticated and tamed and turned into pets by the Progressive Left.
Milo Yiannopoulos
Reggae has a philosophy, you know? It’s not just entertainment. There’s an idea behind it, a way of life behind the music, which is a positive way of life, which is a progressive way of life for better people.
Ziggy Marley
A “communist/socialist/progressive” is an oxymoron, like an “atheist/evangelical Christian/Muslim.”
Hendrik Hertzberg
My family was extremely progressive. My parents had a love marriage, but they separated when I was two years old. I moved to Delhi with my mom, who got involved with the family business.
Aditi Rao Hydari
This idea that once you get into politics you are now signed up for lifelong duty being in elective office, makes a fundamental error – and that is believing that the only way you can hold progressive views and implement them is in elective office.
Matt Gonzalez
We think our leadership has been too timid to go after corruption, and often times, they bow to the liberal progressive demands of the White House instead of standing up for our values.
John Fleming
Progressive politics is not something to be bolted on to another cause.
Johann Lamont
Beginning in 1939, there were events well to the east of Istanbul that seems to have started a progressive sequence to the west. The question is, will the sequence continue further … Unfortunately, we think the answer is yes.
Thomas Parsons
The strategy we need to pursue is one of recovering our time – to push back on our hours of work. We need to form a new alliance between feminist groups, labor unions, child advocates, progressive corporations, and the federal government insofar as it’s willing to pursue a family-friendly agenda.
Arlie Russell Hochschild
I am further left, I am more progressive, than anyone in the state of Kentucky.
Amy McGrath
I tell people in Washington that I’m not the most progressive person in my district and they are shocked.
Michael Capuano
I believe that only a well-read, well-aware individual can make a great leader and build a progressive nation.
Pankaj Tripathi
If the vote that is progressive is split then all that does is open up the path for the Brexit party and allow it to pretend it represents the majority view in this country.
Keir Starmer
Revolutionary practice in any field of human existence develops by itself if one comprehends the contradictions in every new process; it consists in siding with those forces which act in the direction of progressive development.
Wilhelm Reich
In the so-called age of girl power, we have failed to cut loose our most regressive standards of female success – like pleasing others and looking sexy – and to replace them with something more progressive – like valuing intelligence and hard work.
Rachel Simmons
I had been brought up in an elementary school where, my first few grades, I remember being specifically told that my teachers were gay. I was just that age and that was just how it was, and my parents were very… You know, that’s how I was raised. Like super-progressive.
Jake Gyllenhaal
I address myself to the Communists, to those Communists who were prompted to join the Party by the progressive ideas of mankind and socialism, and not by selfish personal interests – let us represent our pure and just ideas by pure and just means.
Janos Kadar
I didn’t like progressive jazz or anything. Rock was something I like to listen to.
Floor Jansen
Many argue that graduates earn a ‘premium’ because of their education, and should have to pay their way. I agree, and that’s why I’ve always advocated a progressive taxation system – so if people do receive large salaries, they pay more income tax.
John McDonnell
I go to a small Catholic school where we have mass every week and say a prayer every morning, but we also are in Los Angeles, where people are so progressive and open.
Josie Totah
There should be complete freedom of thought for a progressive society.
Sherlyn Chopra
I worry about civil-rights activists being targeted as black-identity extremists. I worry about the government saying, ‘I don’t like this progressive blogger’ and subjecting them to scrutiny.
Kevin de Leon
Growing up where I did, I came from a politically progressive family so I was aware of social issues, but it seemed like a very separate thing from film.
Ryan Fleck
Progressive art can assist people to learn what’s at work in the society in which they live.
Angela Davis
There certainly is a case to be made that taxes should be more progressive.
Bill Gates
It is not for nothing that Skaldin in one part of his book quotes Adam Smith: we have seen that both his views and the character of his arguments in many respects repeat the theses of that
great ideologist of the progressive bourgeoisie.
Vladimir Lenin
Quotes from the Underground is a remarkable resource and must-read for writers, researchers, activists and indeed anyone who embraces progressive values and hopes to rescue politics from corporate control.
Joel Bakan
Nothing should be banned. Anything that is progressive and contributes something to society shouldn’t come in the way of politics.
Sanam Saeed
My family was progressive yet traditional in their beliefs. There was pressure on me to perform well academically. I topped my university. But I was a rebel with a cause.
Tisca Chopra
I think ‘progressive’ is different than ‘liberal’ – I know a lot of people use them interchangeably – but I think I’m far more progressive than I am liberal.
Cenk Uygur
History shows that wars are divided into two kinds-just and unjust. All wars that are progressive are just, and all wars that impede progress are unjust.
Mao Zedong
The problem with the World Bank has to do with development – the spreading of Western over-consumption worldwide.
Herman E. Daly
There are a lot of smart honest, progressive people who I think can be good presidents.
Bernie Sanders
In terms of the role of the media, that is my candidacy which does provide that truly progressive agenda that gets to the heart of what is driving this right-wing extremism.It’s not just Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton is not going to be the solution here.
Jill Stein
Districts are really different across the country, but the more that people on the progressive Left show power at the ballot box – and reclassify some of the ideas that we’ve called ‘progressive,’ but that are really mainstream ideas, like college for all – the better.
Pramila Jayapal
Record labels collude with some of the radio stations, and the radio stations have their play lists, dependent upon what they call the, quote, ‘hits.’ What’s commercially viable gets recycled, endlessly repeated, and as a result of that, the progressive music can’t break in.
Michael Eric Dyson
How come liberals never admit that they’re liberal? They’ve now come up with a new word called ‘progressive,’ which I thought was an insurance company but apparently it’s a label.
Marco Rubio
The NBA is way more progressive than the NFL or MLB.
Jay Williams
Only when the human spirit is allowed to invent and create, only when individuals are given a personal stake in deciding economic policies and benefiting from their success – only then can societies remain economically alive, dynamic, prosperous, progressive and free.
Ronald Reagan
My name is Kevin de Leon, and I am the president of the most progressive legislative house in America.
Kevin de Leon
‘White supremacist’ and ‘white nationalist’ aren’t like ‘meanypants’ – you can’t just attach them to people you don’t like without any thought to the consequences. The progressive Left has done it to ordinary Americans for decades. The result? President Trump.
Milo Yiannopoulos
There’s never been a time when we’ve taken progressive action and regretted it.
Daniel Pfeiffer
You need to recognize and sweep aside certain weaknesses which stand between you and your goals. Your persistence develops into a respected, proved, progressive power.
Napoleon Hill
I’m progressive, and I’m practical.
Eric Garcetti
Education must be based on the certainty that faults cannot be atoned for or blotted out, but must always have their consequences. At the same time, there is the other certainty that, through progressive evolution, by slow adaptation to the conditions of environment, they may be transformed.
Ellen Key
I’m comfortable on the progressive side. But I’m still more pitched at fighting the Right than I am about building a progressive platform for the future. It’s fair to say that that conversation doesn’t interest me as much.
David Brock
I just happen to believe that people are not stupid. And the way I will come at it is to educate people, help people to actually understand that it is that progressive movement that is causing them the problems.
Ben Carson
I think that anybody who is going to be the standard-bearer, the spokesman for the progressive movement, in the context of a presidential race, has got to learn to master the language and really get their finger on the pulse of how people are feeling. I think that’s really important.
Keith Ellison
We must continue to recruit progressive prosecutors to run in local elections, support those who do, and hold them accountable if they win.
James Forman, Jr.
Salt Lake City gave me a lot of surprises. How progressive the city actually is, for instance, compared to the rest of Utah – it’s like this purple dot in a sea of red. And the government there is kind of a mix of conservative values and progressive ideas.
Larry Wilmore
In 2003 and again in 2010, I was fired from my job as editor-in-chief of a ‘progressive’ paper, Al-Watan. During the years in between, I served as media adviser to Prince Turki al-Faisal, the Saudi ambassador to Britain and then the United States.
Jamal Khashoggi
Even those who fancy themselves the most progressive will fight against other kinds of progress, for each of us is convinced that our way is the best way.
Louis L’Amour
We have proven that you can actually move strong, progressive policies, grow the economy, and improve the human condition.
Kevin de Leon
We need to reach out to small ‘l’ liberal voters who have a modern outlook on life, who want a party that is hard-headed on the economy – more credible on the economy than Labour – but more socially progressive and fairer than the Conservatives.
Nick Clegg
Nature as a whole is a progressive realization of purpose strictly comparable to the realization of purpose in any single plant or animal.
John Dewey
One of the remarkable things about Donald Trump is that he didn’t just beat the Progressive establishment – he also beat the Conservative establishment. Two political tribes that dominated Washington for half a century were defeated in the space of one election campaign.
Milo Yiannopoulos
What is the true test of character unless it be its progressive development in the bustle and turmoil, in the action and reaction of daily life.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I founded Turning Point U.S.A. to take the fight for ideological diversity directly to a progressive stronghold: the nation’s leading colleges and universities.
Charlie Kirk
‘Outlander’ is progressive in the way it looks at women.
Sam Heughan
I think that Malcolm X was envisioning, even while he was in the Nation of Islam, a black nationalist progressive strategy toward uniting black people across ideological, class lines, denominational religious lines, Christians, as well as Muslims, to build a strong movement for justice and for empowerment.
Manning Marable
What’s the difference between a communist or socialist and a progressive? Revolution or evolution? One requires a gun and the other eats away slowly.
Glenn Beck
Hey, you got something going here. I think we’ve got a chance for some progressive policy that actually focuses on poor and working people.
Cornel West
We have a complete void of progressive politics in this country right now. The will of the people goes ignored and unrealized. I’m searching for the people that can enter the political system, a strong third party. We need to consolidate.
Ani DiFranco
This contest between the secular and religious visions of government is really the main choice to be made. It won’t be decided in one election, but it is a basic choice between an open and progressive Iraq and one that is backward and continues to fall behind.
Adnan Pachachi
I remember clearly the afternoon I sat down with Obama. In December 2006, he was preparing for a family trip, and the decision to run weighed heavily on his mind. As a progressive member of Congress from Illinois, I was excited and energized by the prospect of my senator, and my friend, running for president.
Luis Gutierrez
Pink Floyd, the most successful progressive rock band of all time, have stood the test of time because the emphasis was always on melody and atmosphere.
Steven Wilson
I’m willing to fight for Social Security, Medicare, student loans, U.S. jobs, equal pay, progressive taxation and full employment.
Alan Grayson
Are people who want this kind of progressive change not turning up at polling stations? Are they not voting for progressive representatives? It’s hard to put your finger on why we are where we are.
Scarlett Johansson
Sometimes there is no sugar-coating it. Sometimes you have to challenge people’s belief systems in a progressive way.
Viola Davis
What I argue for is a progressive tax, a global tax, based on the taxation of private property.
Thomas Piketty
Progressive feminists have shown nothing but the most reflexive, regressive contempt for women on the other side of the ideological aisle. It doesn’t matter if you’re a conservative stay at home mom, work at home mom, or work outside the home mom. If you’re Right, the Left is gonna hate.
Michelle Malkin
Success is the progressive realization of a worthy goal or ideal.
Earl Nightingale
Science is the one human activity that is truly progressive. The body of positive knowledge is transmitted from generation to generation.
Edwin Powell Hubble
People do not realize that Alzheimer’s is not old age. It is a progressive and fatal disease and staggering amounts of people develop Alzheimer’s every day.
Melina Kanakaredes
But, when Scripture makes a clear distinction between the act of creation and the process of preservation, we cannot accept the idea of a progressive creation process.
Walter Lang
Religion glorifies the dogma of a despotic, mythical God. Atheism ennobles the interests of free and progressive Man. Religion is superstition. Atheism is sanity. Religion is medieval. Atheism is modern.
E. Haldeman-Julius
My mother had this huge binder of CDs from everyone she loved, like progressive gospel artists. You know, she loved like how Yolanda Adams was kind of R&B, but it was, like, still gospel.
They decided to establish a museum of modern art where works by contemporary artists would be shown. Mother was viewed as a very progressive person, and not everybody liked the paintings she bought.
David Rockefeller
When you think about the progress and the progressive issues we are tackling and solving in Miramar, I’m looking to take these issues nationally because the American people need someone who can champion these issues for them.
Wayne Messam
I’m surrounded by very powerful women and very progressive men.
Christie Hefner
The political left, which holds itself as progressive, rational and fact-based, is becoming an enemy of academic inquiry, and a practitioner of thought control on a wide variety of issues. Increasingly, from the left’s perspective, there is just one acceptable viewpoint.
David Limbaugh
Democracy is about institutions: it’s about having things like schools and judiciary and the Ford Foundation, or ‘The Nation’ magazine – you need progressive institutions, you know what I mean? Those are important institutions to make sure that the government functions.
Robert Kennedy, Jr.
Dance music is about having a good time, and a lot of dance music is very serious now. When progressive house and progressive tech came along, it was kind of serious, but it’s all context as well.
Chris Lowe
Boundaries are shifting between work and the rest of life for men and for women at different life stages. Work is becoming home and home is becoming work. The progressive CEOs who grasp this emergent reality and adjust to embrace it will be at a competitive advantage in the marketplace for talent.
Stewart D. Friedman
Amongst Western intelligentsia, to criticize if not loathe American values is viewed as progressive and liberal, whilst to support brutal and intolerant religious and political ideologies is a hallmark of being enlightened.
Gad Saad
The reality of politics is, if Trump is the president tonight, every progressive group in America will be able to mobilize in a way tomorrow that they may not necessarily have been able to mobilize yesterday.
David Sirota
The key to the defeat and eventually the end of imperialism as a a whole is the unity of all socialist countries and progressive forces in capitalist countries.
Tim Buck
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
Douglas MacArthur
I am not the progressive Koch brother.
Fred Eychaner
One of the things I pride myself on is that my fan base is progressive, but I don’t shy away from people who think differently from me. I welcome productive conversations, but it’s important for me to not hide where I stand.
Natasha Rothwell
Our problem is that we don’t have enough people in America, including black people, who are progressive and willing to sacrifice their popularity in order to tell the truth.
Cornel West
I’m not telling people where to give money, but if there is to be a spotlight shed on me, then I’d like to direct that spotlight onto causes I think are worthy or onto interesting, progressive figures.
Scarlett Johansson
Congress is the most powerful branch. It can expand a progressive society, or it can block a progressive society.
Ralph Nader
Communists must never separate themselves from the majority of the people or neglect them by leading only a few progressive contingents in an isolated and rash advance, but must take care to forge close links between the progressive elements and the broad masses. This is what thinking in terms of the majority means.
Mao Zedong
Understanding Hamas/Hezbollah as social movements that are progressive, that are on the left, that are part of a global left, is extremely important. That does not stop us from being critical of certain dimensions of both movements.
Judith Butler
Method means primarily a way or path of transit. From this we are to understand that the first idea of method is a progressive transition from one step to another in any course. If in the right course, it will be the true method; if in the wrong, we cannot hope to progress.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
‘Guardian’ journalism itself will remain what it has always been: thoughtful, progressive, fiercely independent and challenging, and also witty, stylish, and fun.
Katharine Viner
Acting as a career is a long term thing and that work is kind of progressive and you can build on a career. It’s part of the great tradition of the theater to me.
Sigourney Weaver
He has made us the master organizers of the world . . . to overwhelm the forces of reaction throught the earth . . . . This is the divine mission of America . . . . We are trustees of the world’s progress, guardians of its righteous peace. [Progressive]
Albert J. Beveridge
It would be devastating for America if Donald Trump won, and it would be devastating for the anti-gun-violence movement. But we would be on a long list of progressive causes that would be shattered by a Trump win.
Chris Murphy
I believe Britain’s response to Brexit must be based on core progressive values: internationalism, cooperation, social justice and the rule of law.
Keir Starmer
We’ve been criticizing these superficial aspects, like whether we are all more distracted. We really need to articulate a defense, a critique, that merges awareness of the technology with a more traditional, progressive, left-wing critique of the market.
Astra Taylor
“Culture” is a new phenomenon, I believe. Culture is the new religion. People treat you based upon your culture. You are pushed to describe yourself by your culture: Kurdish or Turkish? Left wing or right wing? Progressive or conservative? Westerner or Easterner? European or Asian? So we have a label ready for you.
Burhan Sonmez
I think Rachel Maddow has done a brilliant job in becoming more and more independent. And I think she does a fantastic progressive show, and she did it by accruing power, by getting better and better ratings.
Cenk Uygur
The discovery of truth, by slow progressive meditation, is wisdom. – Intuition of truth, not preceded by perceptible meditation, is genius.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
I think the rise of progressives is the biggest storyline there is, whether it’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or Kara Eastman or Randy Bryce, Richard Ojeda – real populist progressives that are willing to actually fight for the progressive message rather than the lukewarm establishment Democrats.
Cenk Uygur
Good luck to progressive candidates in U.S. Senate elections against the usual rich, white, racist, women-hating pricks they run against.
Irvine Welsh
I’ve been an executive and a progressive executive with a record of accomplishments.
Martin O’Malley
I was fortunate to write pretty much a year out of film school and start making movies in the Hollywood studio system. But with each progressive film it became more frustrating not being able to speak and say things I wanted to say.
Rick Famuyiwa
The Progressive Blues Experiment, Johnny Winter… and Still Alive and Well is my favorite rock record.
Johnny Winter
I’m into a lot of different types of music – pretty much everything from blue grass to jazz to dub step to metal to indie experimental and progressive.
Britne Oldford
With its brutal empire and legalised slavery, the Roman Republic was hardly a towering beacon of progressive values.
Clive Lewis
The politicians already in office don’t want to change. A few might have it in their hearts to change and to start working for the people, but even some of the most progressive politicians are silent because they know that the candidate with the most money wins.
Russell Simmons
We took the name ‘Liberal’ because we were determined to be a progressive party, willing to make experiments, in no sense reactionary but believing in the individual, his rights, and his enterprise, and rejecting the socialist panacea.
Robert Menzies
The progressive historical role of capitalism may be summed up in two brief propositions: increase in the productive forces of social labour, and the socialisation of that labour. But both these facts manifest themselves in extremely diverse processes in different branches of the national economy.
Vladimir Lenin
The Great War was a progressive revelation and disillusionment.
Ralph Adams Cram
A Soviet man is a product of invisible changes, degradation and progressive deformation. Breaking the chain of those changes is hard. Perhaps they are irreversible.
Merab Mamardashvili
From my time in ‘King Crimson,’ I’d describe a Progressive band as one that keeps trying to break musical barriers, and keeps trying to do new music.
Tony Levin
Punk was sort of an angry stance against things that had happened just before, against the pop of glam rock, against progressive rock. Music had become very staid and it was about the playing and people obsessed. Eric Clapton was God and we needed an enema within the art form, and punk did do that.
Gary Kemp
With conglomerates selling companies to liquidators, who close down plants and move to non-union areas, it’s about time progressive union leaders step in to stop such job-losing tactics… ESOP should become a part of future bargaining packages!
Tom Colicchio
There are great things that Britain can do in the future as a progressive beacon. By voting Leave, we have that opportunity.
Michael Gove
I’m a progressive. What I find is that a subsection within the left that instead of standing for consistency in progressive values, so feminism as applied to mainstream society, as well as within minority communities, gay rights to mainstream society as well as within minority communities.
Maajid Nawaz
Everybody that’s trying to get anything progressive done in this country knows that the biggest barrier is getting money out of politics.
Naomi Klein
On ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,’ we have a mandate to hire as many women as possible, but particularly on a show that is about women and about progressive issues like that.
Marti Noxon
I watch Glenn Beck and he’s taught me well. Progressive is the new word for Communist
Victoria Jackson
The thing I can say about Japan is they were progressive for a country that is very male dominant.
Brandi Chastain
When I call to mind my earliest impressions, I wonder whether the process ordinarily referred to as growing up is not actually a process of growing down; whether experience, so much touted among adults as the thing children lack, is not actually a progressive dilution of the essentials by the trivialities of living.
Aldo Leopold
This liberal progressive agenda… is the antithesis of who we are as a constitutional republic.
Allen West
The combination of Federalism and Republicanism which formed the substance of the system, did not constitute a progressive and formative political principle, but it pointed in the direction of a constructive formula.
Herbert Croly
When people do marriage right, they don’t complain so much, and so their voices are silenced by the rabble of promiscuous charlatans peddling their pathetic world view as ‘progressive.’
Steven Crowder
In the animal world, on the other hand, the process of evolution is characterised by the progressive discrimination of the animal and vegetative functions, and a consequent differentiation of these two great provinces into their separate departments.
Wilhelm Wundt
But the point of a progressive revenue tax is that you create incentives both for breakups, you penalize the acquisitions, and you encourage the development of models where the customers are customers and they know what they’re giving up.
Paul Romer
The stereotype of aging as a progressive loss of function is generally true only for people who stop functioning.
Joan Z. Borysenko
Paradigms of Republican vs. Democrat or Conservative vs. Progressive have been designed for obfuscation and entertainment.
Catherine Austin Fitts
The progressive development of man is vitally dependent on invention.
Nikola Tesla
Music is progressive, you get out, you experiment with new people and you grow.
Denny Laine
The alt-right for me is primarily a cultural reaction to the nannying and language policing and authoritarianism of the progressive left – the stranglehold that it has on culture.
Milo Yiannopoulos
The style of music that we’re playing, this progressive metal style, has always been an upstream battle for us. We don’t usually get a lot of commercial exposure.
John Petrucci
I am sort of anti-hunting. I don’t put down what anyone wants to do, but it seems to me that killing a creature for fun is not a progressive idea.
Clint Eastwood
There is a reason people in America are disappointed and restless. If opportunity seems like it’s been slipping away, that’s because it has. And liberal progressive ideas have done exactly nothing to help.
Paul Ryan
Too many Californians are struggling to make ends meet, pay the bills, and send their kids to college. They are looking for progressive leaders in Washington who will fight for them, like Senator Boxer has done for over 20 years.
Antonio Villaraigosa
Progressive Conservative candidates from Quebec want to exert real power in Ottawa, not simply be content with playing a secondary role.
Kim Campbell
Being a liberal progressive has been demonized as anti-white or overly on the side of blacks. There’s nothing that can be done about that; it’s just where we are in the history of our perceptions.
Darryl Pinckney
I was in an organization called Progressive Labor Party and International Committee Against Racism. And I was – I started out helping to organize a farm workers’ union in Central California.
Boots Riley
Law is stable; the societies we are speaking of are progressive. The greater or less happiness of a people depends on the degree of promptitude with which the gulf is narrowed.
Henry James Sumner Maine
I think it’s better to have ideas. You can change an idea. Changing a belief is trickier. Life should malleable and progressive; working from idea to idea permits that. Beliefs anchor you to certain points and limit growth; new ideas can’t generate. Life becomes stagnant.
Kevin Smith
One reason why the progressive state is ‘cheerful’ is that social conflict is diminished by it.
Kenneth E. Boulding
If we have to put music into baskets, then the progressive rock bands I fell in love with as a teenager made sounds that shaded into jazz, folk, metal, and in the case of the wonderful (and sadly missed) Jon Lord, modern classical music.
Gavin Esler
Problems become privatized and removed from larger social issues. This is one task, connecting the personal problems to larger social issues that progressive leftist intellectuals have failed to take on as a major political and educational project.
Henry Giroux
Sexually progressive cultures gave us literature, philosophy, civilization and the rest, while sexually restrictive cultures gave us the Dark Ages and the Holocaust.
Alan Moore
The pause – that impressive silence, that eloquent silence, that geometrically progressive silence which often achieves a desired effect where no combination of words, howsoever felicitous, could accomplish it.
Mark Twain
I think that people have to have to have a sense of what ideas are one the progressive side, the Democratic side in order ultimately to be effective in the political world.
John Podesta
Democrats want to force their ideas on states that refuse to adopt their progressive, failed policies.
Tommy Tuberville
Life is a partial, continuous, progressive, multiform and conditionally interactive self-realization of the potentialities of atomic electron states.
John Desmond Bernal
Progressive art can assist people to learn not only about the objective forces at work in the society in which they live, but also about the intensely social character of their interior lives. Ultimately, it can propel people toward social emancipation.
Salvador Dali
I think it’s really progressive to talk about race in relationships. I think there is so much room for that, and there needs to be more of it.
Jessica Williams
History respects revolutions; and yet, if a revolution is progressive, support it; if it is reactionary, resist it!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Ours is a government of liberty by, through, and under the law.
A great democracy must be progressive or it will soon cease to be great or a democracy.
Theodore Roosevelt
The next thing I am doing is moving back home to Minnesota and getting involved in politics. I’m looking at a run for Senate in 2008, but in the meantime I am focused on knitting together the progressive network in the upper Midwest.
Al Franken
Continuing to push narratives that are progressive and that are coming from a place of love and acceptance is so important.
Kiana Madeira
I will say that the environment I grew up in was not the most progressive.
Alan Ball
Progressive changed the industry when we introduced our Comparison Rater Experience and showed you auto rates of other companies next to our own – even if our rates weren’t the lowest. That level of transparency was unprecedented.
Tricia Griffith
It would be a lot cheaper for me not to have to raise tens of millions of dollars to elect progressive candidates who will raise my taxes.
Chris Sacca
I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party who are members of the Communist Party. It’s called the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Allen West
On the contrary a film can promote the idea of change without any political message whatsoever but in its form and language can tell people that they can change their lives and contribute to progressive changes in the world.
Wim Wenders
Lopez Obrador invokes the appeal of national unity, the revolution of 1910, and the progressive constitution of 1917.
Jeremy Corbyn
You can get really left of centre influences in mainstream pop. Michael Jackson and Prince are some of the most progressive artists ever if you actually dissect their songs there’s some crazy stuff going on.
The movement of the progressive societies has hitherto been a movement from Status to Contract.
Henry James Sumner Maine
Most conservative and progressive talk radio is primarily just that – bloviated opinion and whacky viewer calls.
David Shuster
I have a political view that is certainly progressive and radical in a certain sense.
Susan Rosenberg
The only way I can get progressive things done is working with Republicans.
Steve Bullock
The first progressive step for a mind overwhelmed by the strangeness of things is to realize that this feeling of strangeness is shared with all men and that human reality, in its entirety, suffers from the distance which separates it from the rest of the universe.
Albert Camus
As the years go by, I realize how unique a style rock music is and how delicate you have to be with it sometimes; otherwise, you turn it into pop music or progressive rock or something else.
Joe Satriani
If anything’s progressive, then we make progress.
Michael Giles
Journalism is about results. It’s about affecting your community or your society in the most progressive way.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas
We must put an end to the corruption and systemic racism in our justice system, and that starts by electing progressive district attorneys who will fight for real justice across the country.
Shaun King
The whole order of nature evinces a progressive march towards a higher life.
Helena Blavatsky
What brings me the most joy is stories about progressive thinking. When a mother or father accepts their child for whoever they are… when goodness prevails… blah blah blah. I’m a cheese ball.
Jinkx Monsoon
I’m ready to fight, and I’m ready to make sure progressive includes progress.
Ted Wheeler
Like an organism, photography was born whole. It is in our progressive discovery of it that its history lies.
John Szarkowski
Maybe some people are attracted to the alt-right that are homophobes, right? But that’s just like, there are certain elements of the progressive left and the hard left that attract certain element.
Steve Bannon
Apartheid education, rarely mentioned in the press or openly confronted even among once-progressive educators, is alive and well and rapidly increasing now in the United States.
Jonathan Kozol
Notwithstanding the fact that the most innovative and progressive space we’ve seen – the Internet – has been the place where intellectual property has been least respected. You know, facts don’t get in the way of this ideology.
Lawrence Lessig
Never before has a major professional sports team partnered in this way with a female-driven brand like Bumble. It’s an honor to partner with an organization as progressive and compassionate as the Clippers. Like us, they know generating awareness for diversity and gender equality is critical to business success.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
I’d like to think my company HootSuite is anything but a stodgy old-boys’ club. As a social media company, our employees are by and large young, progressive and open-minded.
Ryan Holmes
We believe that the Federal Reserve has to carry on with a progressive increase in interest rates as a consequence of the American economy.
Rodrigo Rato
The campaign to put a woman on the $20 bill has narrowed the choices down to four finalists. The four finalists are Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Flo from the Progressive Insurance ads.
Conan O’Brien
Neurosis can be understood best as the battle between tendencies within an individual; deep character analysis leads, if successful, to the progressive solution.
Erich Fromm
It so happens that America, according to all the polls that are out there, is pretty progressive. So you’re not going to see messages that support Ayn Randian individualism at the cost of the whole, because most people don’t agree with that.
Adam McKay
What man is really anti-progressive? For he is only anti-certain-people’s-visions-for-the-future.
Criss Jami
Once you run and once you win with an unabashed progressive feminist standard, then it becomes easier for everybody else who’s running.
Christine Pelosi
You can be both progressive and want to get things done – they’re not mutually exclusive and that’s what I bring.
Gretchen Whitmer
The U.S. is the country that invented progressive taxation of income and of inherited wealth in the 1910s and 20s.
Thomas Piketty
I’ve liked country music for forever. And Buck Owens is just one of many country guitarists I like. I think Buck’s Sixties records are really progressive.
Buzz Osborne
Nothing is so pregnant as cruelty; so multifarious, so rapid, so ever teeming a mother is unknown to the animal kingdom; each of her experiments provokes another and refines upon the last; though always progressive, yet always remote from the end.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
Bernie Sanders had public support behind him that outstripped… in head-to-head polling, Bernie Sanders was ahead of all the other competition. This is a progressive agenda that the American people embrace every time they have something to say about it.
Jill Stein
The danger of having the Constitution twisted and misconstrued to support vested interests and prejudices must be guarded against if American democracy is to maintain a progressive character.
Helen Keller
I was very restless. I really wanted to be a part of a kind of a progressive society. I was fed up with these Communist doctrines and you were hassled all the time with members of the Party committee who were KGB, what you have to do, where in the West you can go or not to go.
Mikhail Baryshnikov
My music, I think, takes elements from a lot of different genres, progressive, electro but is still quite clearly defined as my sound.
Trump is a populist in the same mold as the nineteenth-century Populists who gave their name to American grassroots political movements. Historians and pundits argued themselves blue in the face over whether Populists were reactionary or progressive, but they were both.
Heather Cox Richardson
The U.A.E. has a progressive vision for transforming its economy, and Hyperloop One plays right into that by increasing access to the region and beyond.
Shervin Pishevar
Progressive improvement beats delayed perfection.
Mark Twain
I’m a Democrat, and I think people who meet me will realize I’m a Democrat. I have progressive Democratic values.
Stephen Pagliuca
Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess.
Oscar Wilde
I’m drawn to almost any piece of writing with the words ‘divine love’ and ‘impeachment’ in the first sentence. But I know the word ‘divine’ makes many progressive people run screaming for their cute little lives, and so one hesitates to use it.
Anne Lamott
In a nuclear war there would be no victors, only victims. The truth of peace requires that all … strive for a progressive and concerted nuclear disarmament.
Pope Benedict XVI
I’ve got a really long record around progressive politics, especially when it comes to the economy. Voted against the Bush tax cuts. Voted against the Trump tax cuts. Believe in investment into lifting people up, closing the opportunity gaps that exist in our society.
Tim Ryan
It is not the brains that matter most, but that which guides them — the character, the heart, generous qualities, progressive ideas.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
The black community has been the foundation of the progressive community in this country for a long time.
Benjamin Todd Jealous
Right from the outset, the prevailing mindset in British comics fandom was a radical and progressive one. We were all proto-hippies, and we all thought that comics would be greatly improved if everything was a bit psychedelic like Jim Steranko.
Alan Moore
So many commercial orgs have software where you can come and modify it but they still control everything. And what’s controlled is very clearly what’s good for their business, or if they’re more progressive, their view of what’s good for the Internet.
Mitchell Baker
I believe there’s an emerging American majority for progressive economic change.
Bill de Blasio
I think it is important that people who are perceived as liberals not be afraid of talking about moral and community values.
Marian Wright Edelman
When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.
HГ©lder CГўmara
Hillary Clinton does represent the establishment. I represent, I hope, ordinary Americans, and by the way, who are not all that enamored with the establishment, but I am very proud to have people like Keith Ellison and Raul Grijalva in the House, the co-chairmen of the House Progressive Caucus.
Bernie Sanders
This week we saw progressive business and faith leaders making strong commitments that are moving ahead of what world leaders promised today. The leaders of major economies must be bolder than they were today in providing a vision for 100% renewable energy for all.
Kumi Naidoo
I’m conservative on some issues. I’m progressive on most.
Ed Schultz
The progressive development of man [has as its] ultimate purpose the complete mastery of mind over the material world.
Nikola Tesla
Language is neither reactionary nor progressive; it is quite simply fascist; for fascism does not prevent speech, it compels speech.
Roland Barthes
As a Westerner, the child of civil rights and anti-war activists, I embraced Islam not in abandonment of my core values, drawn almost entirely from the progressive tradition, but as an affirmation of them.
Hamza Yusuf
The NBA man, we have always been progressive.
Charles Barkley
If you’re doing anything disruptive, and if you know it to be good and true and progressive, let the naysayers fuel you to work harder and go faster and sleep less.
Whitney Wolfe Herd
I met Hillary Clinton when I was a young lady working as an intern, and I can tell you she’s been a progressive fighter all her life. And Bernie Sanders, I got to know him during campaigns on Capitol Hill, campaigns across this country. These are two wonderful, fighting souls.
Donna Brazile
And so many of the kinds of labels you get stuck with don’t really tell the story; Progressive, Art Rock, Noise Music, Downtown – it ends up being a struggle to stay out of debates that other people are having around you.
Fred Frith
There’s enormous progressive activism and, more often than not, success at the grassroots level – everything from living wage campaigns to efforts to finance our elections are having terrific success.
Jim Hightower
I think a progressive is someone who cares to expand freedom for everybody.
Cenk Uygur
Progressive policies are harming the Black community.
Deneen Borelli
I was a brand new senator in 2013. And the idiocy of Congress was to shut the government down for two weeks in October. And coming out of that, the pressure was put on the budget chair, Paul Ryan’s shoulders and Patty Murray. Conservative Wisconsin Republican, progressive Washington Democrat, come up with a budget deal.
Tim Kaine
I was part of that whole early Moody Blues transitioning from a sort of R&B-blues band to being more progressive.
Denny Laine
What, after all, is the narrative of the American Dream? It was a discourse formulated between the 1880s and the 1920s in the United States during the great waves of migration and expansion and reforms of the Progressive Era.
Naomi Wolf
We are here to change. We are here to grow, develop and unfold. We are progressive beings that have infinite capacity
Michael Beckwith
We must not only become reliable, progressive, skillful and intelligent, but we must keep the idea constantly before our youths that all forms of labor, whether with the hand or head, are honorable.
Booker T. Washington
Accounting for the unpaid care economy can drive progressive policies such as paid family leave, social security credits for early childcare, tax credits, and quality early childhood education.
Sri Mulyani Indrawati
I think Lena Dunham, the public figure, is – I hate the word ‘brand,’ but I’m going to use it – it’s such a brand that is so tethered to her public persona and to ‘Girls’, but also this progressive politics that she’s been more vocal about.
Jenny Zhang
When we engage in the critical decisions about our nation’s future budgets, I want progressive voices at the table to argue that we must protect the most vulnerable in our society and demand fairness in budget cuts.
Dick Durbin
What I want to try to do is unify the two wings of the Democratic Party. What’s considered the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party – the more centrist wing of the party. I think we can craft an approach that is more American, pro-worker, pro-business, pro-growth.
Barack Obama
Freedom is the opportunity for right development, for development in accordance with the progressive ideal of life that we have in conscience.
Charles Horton Cooley
I think most people are more susceptible to prejudice than to reason. And the parrots of talk radio are just sending out the same stuff. When I look at my e-mails, I see the same Limbaugh rhetoric; apparently, people don’t have any ideas of their own. And there’s just this drumroll of anti-progressive thought.
Roger Ebert
As a socially conscious person, I have my views on matters like gender inequality and progressive movements. But being a mother, children’s issues have affected me a lot.
Navya Nair
I know people come to my shows expecting me to give voice to some of the frustrations that nice, happy, progressive people like me have with the world.
Tim Minchin
Can you be a progressive if you’re anti-immigrant but pro-choice? No!
Pramila Jayapal
I’m always looking for an opportunity to bring progressive Democrats together with some conservative libertarian types, because there are places where we can agree.
Ron Paul
I think people recognize that I’m not a partisan Republican that I’m someone who is moderate, and that my views are progressive.
Mitt Romney
One cannot understand what’s happening to women in the Middle East if they don’t realize that the mothers are a strong, progressive force. The mothers push the daughters to get out of the harem, to get the education, to achieve what they could not even dream of.
Fatema Mernissi
I’ll put my progressive credentials up against anyone’s.
Bart Stupak
In reality, it si more fruitful to wound than to kill. While the dead man lies still, counting only one man less, the wounded man is a progressive drain upon his side.
B. H. Liddell Hart
Anyone who thinks they’re a progressive should be interested in making progress.
Michael Bennet
Canada must be progressive, and Canada must be a just society.
Justin Trudeau
Imagine a progressive president fighting to fix the insane economic inequality in the country or to end the senseless drug war or, best of all, battling to get money out of politics. Wouldn’t that be wonderful?
Cenk Uygur
My high school in Seattle, Lakeside, seemed conservative on the surface, but it was educationally progressive.
Paul Allen
I did want to mark the fact that it was the first African-American to win the Lead Actress category.I thought it was so progressive.
Viola Davis
There really needs to be more of progressive shows and strong characters that women should aspire to be like.
Mandira Bedi
In Russia, Vladimir Putin is viewed as a progressive Democrat.
Ed Schultz
The standard progressive approach of the moment is to mix color-conscious moral invective with color-blind public policy.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
The SNP are far from radical, but they do have a knack for producing the odd simple, progressive policy that’s hard to argue against.
Frankie Boyle
I had quit the Congress to form the Progressive Democratic Front in 1978.
Sharad Pawar
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 Nestell Bovee
Greece, alone, is in a very vulnerable position. If the Greeks had had support from progressive left and popular forces elsewhere in Europe they might have been able to resist the demands of the Troika, but they had almost no support. Not even from Portugal, Spain, or other left forces. They were left alone.
Noam Chomsky
I think, the most progress I have agenda, the progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party. So we have got to continue bringing people in, fighting for an agenda that works for working families and having the courage to take on the big money people who today control our economic and political life.
Bernie Sanders
Generally, we are united in the belief that all rod design has been progressive and that the ideas about fly rods in the past were so bad as to make it amazing that people were able to fish at all.
Thomas McGuane
I think the time is right for organizing and to give Blacks more political – the progressive Blacks, you have to make a distinction – participation, more Blacks in more authoritative positions, in more electoral political positions. But we want the right ones.
Huey Newton
In Syria, a progressive foreign policy would have shown military restraint while pumping up our ability to gain political leverage over Syria’s benefactors and providing humanitarian funding to make sure that anybody that wanted to leave Syria could.
Chris Murphy
But the Progressive Conservative is very definitely liberal Republican. These are people who are moderately conservative on economic matters, and in the past have been moderately liberal, even sometimes quite liberal on social policy matters.
Stephen Harper
People are realizing that the winning message is the progressive message.
Saikat Chakrabarti
If you want to say something radical, you should dress conservative.
Steven Biko
Most Jewish feminists and gays that I know remain angry and frustrated by Jewish progressives. Deeply committed to progressive causes, frequently in the vanguard of political action, Jewish feminist and gays find ourselves fighting for the rights of others without the secure knowledge that others will fight for us.
Irena Klepfisz
I was trained as a fine artist. I went to a progressive public school in Pennsylvania that developed these talents, but I was never able to apply to a decent college because I had no math, no science – I was allowed to just paint all day and write.
Lynda Resnick
There’s a song called ‘Slip To The Void,’ which is fairly long and has more of an epic approach. And I guess for lack of a better term some people might throw the progressive tag on it. I don’t know if it necessarily falls into that – a few people have brought that up who have heard it.
Myles Kennedy
I support progressive revenue sources that ease the burden on low-income and working-class individuals and families who are least able to shoulder the burden of regressive taxes and fees.
Lori Lightfoot
I’m very progressive in a lot of ways, but I’m a very proud American. It sounds so corny to say, but I am and have always been very… I’m just so proud. I don’t ever not want to live in America.
Nick Viall
Natural or artificial stimulation of nerves gives rise to a process of progressive excitation in them, leading to a response in the effector organ of the nerves concerned.
Otto Loewi
The waves of religion based on terrorism in the 1990s are based on the tormented response of a mutilated Muslim society whose progressive forces have been savagely emasculated. Why on earth is the Arab world so hostile to women? Why can it not see women as a force for development?
Fatema Mernissi
That’s kind of the nature of being in a progressive band – always trying new things, moving forward.
John Petrucci
In pursuing the cherished goal of gender justice, to mention one example, the Supreme Court of India has always been proactive and progressive.
Ram Nath Kovind
I believe moderates will need to be driven out in order to usher in the progressive era.
Barack Obama
The American people need to know we understand that they elected us to fight for economic opportunity for all. We need to create America 2.0 – a multicultural, progressive, and innovative country that fights every day for ordinary people.
Tim Ryan
She’s going to do what her donors want. That’s who Nancy Pelosi is. Not remotely progressive.
Cenk Uygur
The notion of a healthy society, of capable people who are able to enjoy life, arose in the liberal, middle-class, leftist and non-religious segments of society. The euthanasia idea came from neither the radical right-wing nor the conservative corner. It was and remains part of the modern age and progressive thought.
Gotz Aly
I went to a progressive primary school in Kendal, followed by a boys’ grammar school and then Cambridge.
David Starkey
I’m a Palestinian-Muslim, but I’m also a progressive.
Linda Sarsour
The ‘progressive’ tax-and-spend agenda has been put on trial. The policies not only lead to much slower growth but also benefit the rich and politically well-connected at the expense of everyone else.
Stephen Moore
My musical tastes go from Zeppelin to Bob Dylan to Kanye West and Lil’ Wayne. Anything modern and progressive.
Josh Hartnett
My party was the party which was created by Mr Mohammad Ali Jinnah. He didn’t create that party. But he was the main pillar of the party. Our party is a very forward-looking, progressive, democratic party.
Nawaz Sharif
Political correctness is as exploitable as any other progressive ideal, but its aim is to stifle the incessant noise of those who flap their careless lips without a thought about those they might offend and why that might be important.
Marcus Brigstocke
Latter-day scepticism is fond of calling itself progressive; but scepticism is really reactionary. Scepticism goes back; it attempts to unsettle what has already been settled. Instead of trying to break up new fields with its plough, it simply tries to break up the plough.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
The most essential mental quality for a free people, whose liberty is to be progressive, permanent and on a large scale, is much stupidity.
Walter Bagehot
In all of my years in this business, I’ve always been part of either a progressive band or a metal band.
Mike Portnoy
We must be open to creating alliances of progressive and socialist organisations on a local level, particularly given the undemocratic electoral system face.
Clive Lewis
One hundred years ago, visionary political leaders from the Progressive Era established a system of national forests and parks in our country that are the envy of the world and today are the treasure of an entire nation. Why not a similar, global vision for our generation?
Eban Goodstein

Patricia Ireland
A proactive person needs no pressure to perform and an ineffective person offloads his pressure onto others to deform the positive work culture of the system.

John Delaney
I don’t think that the forms of feminism that are prevailing on campus are left wing. It’s a conservative form of feminism in gender politics and there [isn’t] anything particularly progressive about it. That’s what is baffling. You’ve got conservatives acting like liberals touting free speech and due process.
Laura Kipnis
It is imperative that Democrats take a stand and embrace Medicare for All and other progressive policies that address the needs of millions of Americans.
Nina Turner

Deepak Chopra
Progressivism is usually seen as a stepping back from individualism into a progressive community…
Jane Smiley
I’m a huge classics fan. I love Ernest Hemingway and J.D. Salinger. I’m that guy who rereads a book before I read newer stuff, which is probably not all that progressive, and it’s not really going to make me a better reader. I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, you should read To Kill a Mockingbird.’

Every single progressive education fad of the past thirty years has hurt poor black children.

Cenk Uygur
We need to take our passion and effect real change at the local, state, and federal levels, to help elect progressive leaders, and to stem the tide of division, fear and scapegoating.

Jared Polis
Most across the political spectrum – whether you’re a Republican, Democrat, Progressive or Independent – agree with the need for more affordable housing.

Tariq Ramadan
I think Albertans are progressive and forward-looking and are very optimistic, and I think they’ve always embraced change. Now with the economy being the way it is, I think we need to acknowledge people are a bit nervous too.
Rachel Notley
People who are willing to give up freedom for the sake of short term security, deserve neither freedom nor security.
Benjamin Franklin
Look at music: I’ve always loved hiphop and rap, and now there’s this whole progressive movement, with De La Soul and Mos Def, Common. It’s some of the best stuff around.

Ours was a very progressive Protestant family, but my parents were God-loving rather than God-fearing. We went to church, and I still go with my mum and dad when I return home – it’s a family thing.

James Nesbitt
I am a progressive Eurosceptic. I supported Leave.

Jack Waters
The Nazis learned their propaganda from the progressive movement in the United States.

I consider myself a progressive. I have a passion for people who work. To me, this is about forward looking versus backward looking. Ideological gradations are the wrong way to look at it.
Rahm Emanuel
I think there’s always been progressive R&B music.
If novels and stories are bulletins from the progressive states of ignorance a writer passes through over the years, observations and opinions about horses are all the more so, since horses are more mysterious than life and harder to understand.
Jane Smiley
If the Russian word “perestroika” has easily entered the international lexicon, this is due to more than just interest in what is going on in the Soviet Union. Now the whole world needs restructuring, i.e. progressive development, a fundamental change.
Mikhail Gorbachev

Annie Lowrey

Erik Hassle
I’ve played with all of the heavyweights in the modern jazz, progressive jazz movement. I’ve been fortunate enough to play with them, a who’s who. All of those guys, I’ve been fortunate enough to have performed with.

Soni Razdan
We need a very progressive and strong agenda to bring people into the political process because I worry very much about the future of the American democracy where so many people are giving up.
Bernie Sanders

Rebecca Traister
Ambition alone cannot define a progressive female character.
Kanika Dhillon
No progressive knowledge will ever medicine that dread misgiving of a mysterious and pathless power given to words of a certain import.

Tony Abbott
Our long-term objective is clear: to replace the Labour Party as the progressive wing of politics in this country.
Jo Grimond

Oliver Stone
On many, many issues, Hillary Clinton’s views are progressive. In many areas, they are awesome. Where they’re not progressive, we’ve got to push her, and the day after the election, I will mobilize millions of people to make sure that we make her the most progressive president that she can be.

Tommy Tuberville
In my state, the Republican Party was the most progressive party.
Edward Brooke
Anthony Weiner deserves to be supported and hopefully he will be mayor of New York one day. I’m serious. He is a Democrat [who] actually fights for the things liberals and progressive and rational people care about. I don’t know why he’s being thrown under the bus. He hasn’t done any – he hasn’t broke any laws.
Janeane Garofalo
The American people must make a fundamental decision.

Edgar Allan Poe
We’ve seen progressive rock all over the world, in South America, Europe, Asia, across the US and North America and Australia. There’s huge audiences for this stuff. For me it’s always been there and it’s just a matter of time before the people have more of the means to spread the word.

John Burns
If men make war in slavish observance of rules, they will fail. No rules will apply to conditions of war as different as those which exist in Europe and America…War is progressive, because all the instruments and elements of war are progressive.
Ulysses S. Grant
Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man.
Stewart Udall
My favorite zone is from 1890 -1915, that zone that spans the overlap of the so-called Gilded Age and the Progressive Era. People had such a boundless sense of optimism; They felt they could do anything they wanted to do, and they went out and tried to do it.
Erik Larson
I consider myself a pretty progressive person, and I think I have a track record that shows that. But I’m also not just going to do a policy because it’s the liberal thing to do.
Julian Castro
