„I don't divide the world into the weak and the strong, or the successes and the failures, those who make it or those who don't. I divide the world into learners and nonlearners.“

—  Benjamin Barber, in: The Reader's digest vol. 140, no. 837-842 (1992), p. 159

„The progressive world is necessarily divided into two classes — those who take the best of what there is and enjoy it — those who wish for something better and try to create it.“

—  Florence Nightingale English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing 1820 - 1910
Context: The progressive world is necessarily divided into two classes — those who take the best of what there is and enjoy it — those who wish for something better and try to create it. Without these two classes the world would be badly off. They are the very conditions of progress, both the one and the other. Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better.
