How to use proceed in a sentence?

  1. Trisha Anderson:

    Given the significance of the matter, um, uh, that we had to proceed quickly, it was just too, too explosive for us to sit on.

  2. Lenore Skenazy:

    We've been encouraged in our society to do what I call worst-first thinking, which is come up with the worst-case scenario first and proceed as if it's likely to happen, and that's what happened with The Meitivs, someone sees two children alone, and they leap to' Oh, my God, they're neglected. What if they're run over by a Mack truck ? What if they're kidnapped ? There are predators all around.'.

  3. Clive Staples Lewis:

    What I want to fix your attention on is the vast overall movement towards the discrediting, and finally the elimination, of every kind of human excellence -- moral, cultural, social or intellectual. And is it not pretty to notice how 'democracy' (in the incantatory sense) is now doing for us the work that was once done by the most ancient dictatorships, and by the same methods The basic proposal of the new education is to be that dunces and idlers must not be made to feel inferior to intelligent and industrious pupils. That would be 'undemocratic.' Children who are fit to proceed may be artificially kept back, because the others would get a trauma by being left behind. The bright pupil thus remains democratically fettered to his own age group throughout his school career, and a boy who would be capable of tackling Aeschylus or Dante sits listening to his coeval's attempts to spell out A CAT SAT ON A MAT. We may reasonably hope for the virtual abolition of education when 'I'm as good as you' has fully had its way. All incentives to learn and all penalties for not learning will vanish. The few who might want to learn will be prevented who are they to overtop their fellows And anyway, the teachers -- or should I say nurses -- will be far too busy reassuring the dunces and patting them on the back to waste any time on real teaching. We shall no longer have to plan and toil to spread imperturbable conceit and incurable ignorance among men.

  4. David Neeleman:

    All options are on the table. We're starting the negotiations now, they will proceed and there are various possibilities. The state, as well as we, are discussing all options.

  5. Jon Thompson:

    That's the project that keeps me awake at night the most, it's the biggest project the Ministry of Defense is ever going to take on. If the government were to proceed with renewing the deterrent then in due course that would exceed 5 billion (pounds) a year. That is a significant proportion of the defense budget and it's an incredibly complicated area.
