|Walt: Dad, what's gradual school?|
Garp: Gradual school?
Walt: Yeah. Mom says her work's more fun now that she's teaching
Garp: Oh. Well, gradual school is someplace you go and gradually
find out that you don't want to go to school anymore.
-- The World According To Garp
|By doing just a little every day, you can gradually let the task|
completely overwhelm you.
|The introduction of a new kind of music must be shunned as imperiling the|
whole state, for styles of music are never disturbed without affecting
the most important political institutions. ... The new style, gradually
gaining a lodgement, quitely insinuates itself into manners and customs,
and from it ... goes on to attack laws and constitutions, displaying the
utmost impudence, until it ends by overturning everything.
-- Plato, "Republic", 370 B.C.
