Graham Swift Quotes

Ther?s this thing called progress. But it does?t progress. It does?t go anywhere. Because as progress progresses the world can slip away. I?s progress if you can stop the world slipping away. My humble model for progress I the reclamation of land. Which is repeatedly, never-ending retrieving what it lost. A dogged and vigilant business. A dull yet valuable business. A hard, inglorious business. But you should?t go mistaking the reclamation of land for the building of empires.
