Famous quotes containing the word grow:

    The grapes
    that need frost to ripen them
    are amber and grow deep in the
    hedge, half-concealed,
    the way your beauty grows in long tendrils
    half in darkness.
    Denise Levertov (b. 1923)

    A young person is a person with nothing to learn
    One who already knows that ice does not chill and fire does not burn . . .
    It knows it can spend six hours in the sun on its first
    day at the beach without ending up a skinless beet,
    And it knows it can walk barefoot through the barn
    without running a nail in its feet. . . .
    Meanwhile psychologists grow rich
    Writing that the young are ones’ should not
    undermine the self-confidence of which.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)

    If you wish to grow thinner, diminish your dinner,
    And take to light claret instead of pale ale;
    Look down with an utter contempt upon butter,
    And never touch bread till it’s toasted—or stale
    —H.S. (Henry Sambrooke)
