The growth of the mind is the widening of the range of consciousness, and ... each step forward has been a most painful and laborious achievement.
BRAZILIFICATION:The widening gulf between the rich and the poor and the accompanying disappearance of the middle classes.Douglas Coupland
It is little rift within the lute, That by and by will make the music mute, And ever widening slowly silence all.Tennyson
Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned; The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity. SeeAchebe 2:18.
Culture is the widening of the mind and of the spirit. It is never a narrowing of the mind or a restriction of the human spirit or the country's spirit.jawaharlal nehru
If the Soul sees, after death , what passes on this earth , and watches over the welfare of those it loves, then must its greatest happiness consist in seeing the current of its beneficent influences widening out from age to age, as rivulets widen into rivers, and aiding to shape the destinies of individuals, families, States, the World; and its bitterest punishment, in seeing its evil influences causing mischief and misery , and cursing and afflicting men, long after the frame it dwelt in has become dust, and when both name and memory are forgotten.albert pike
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence. Flow down and down in always widening rings of being.jalal al-din muhammad rumi

The great question for our time is, how to make sure that the continuing scientific revolution brings benefits to everybody rather than widening the gap between rich and poor. To lift up poor countries, and poor people in rich countries, from poverty, to give them a chance of a decent life, technology is not enough. Technology must be guided and driven by ethics if it is to do more than provide new toys for the rich.freeman dyson
