Harper: In this world, there is a kind of painful progress. (5.10.2)

Harper pretty much sums up the progressive view of the play in this statement: moving forward isn't easy, but it's necessary. As hard as it is, we all need to be brave enough to change.

Quote #11

Prior: The world only spins forward. (Epilogue.31)
