Grown

Famous quotes containing the word grown:

    “When I used to read fairy tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one! There ought to be a book written about me, that there ought! And when I grow up, I’ll write one—but I’m grown up now,” she added in a sorrowful tone: “At least there’s no room to grow up any more here.”
    Lewis Carroll [Charles Lutwidge Dodgson] (1832–1898)

    Thou hast conquered, O pale Galilean; the world has grown grey from thy breath;
    We have drunken of things Lethean; and fed on the fullness of death.
    Laurel is green for a season, and love is sweet for a day;
    But love grows bitter with treason, and laurel outlives not May.
    Sleep, shall we sleep after all? for the world is not sweet in the
    end;
    For the old faiths loosen and fall, the new years ruin and rend.
    —A.C. (Algernon Charles)

    I am grown old, and have possibly lost a great deal of that fire, which formerly made me love fire in others at any rate, and however attended with smoke: but now I must have all sense, and cannot, for the sake of five righteous lines, forgive a thousand absurd ones.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
