Famous quotes containing the word growth:

    That land is like an Eagle, whose young gaze
    Feeds on the noontide beam, whose golden plume
    Floats moveless on the storm, and in the blaze
    Of sunrise gleams when Earth is wrapped in gloom;
    An epitaph of glory for the tomb
    Of murdered Europe may thy fame be made,
    Great People! as the sands shalt thou become;
    Thy growth is swift as morn, when night must fade;
    The multitudinous Earth shall sleep beneath thy shade.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    A man’s growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends. For every friend whom he loses for truth, he gains a better.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    We already have the statistics for the future: the growth percentages of pollution, overpopulation, desertification. The future is already in place.
