C.S. Lewis on progress

In light of the upcoming Obama Presidential Inauguration and the great hope our county is most certainly, and desperately looking for, I found these word on progress by C.S. Lewis to be very relevant to our current situation:

“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
