Famous quotes containing the word grow:

    The best of America drifts to Paris. The American in Paris is the best American. It is more fun for an intelligent person to live in an intelligent country. France has the only two things toward which we drift as we grow older—intelligence and good manners.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    As you grow older, you’ll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and don’t you forget it—whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.
    Harper Lee (b. 1926)

    As we grow older, we increase in folly—and in wisdom.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)
