Grown

Famous quotes containing the word grown:

    He has outsoared the shadow of our night;
    Envy and calumny and hate and pain,
    And that unrest which men miscall delight,
    Can touch him not and torture not again;
    From the contagion of the world’s slow stain
    He is secure, and now can never mourn
    A heart grown cold, a head grown grey in vain.
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)

    I’ve grown accustomed to her face.
    Alan Jay Lerner (1918–1986)

    How red the rose that is the soldier’s wound,
    The wounds of many soldiers, the wounds of all
    The soldiers that have fallen, red in blood,
    The soldier of time grown deathless in great size.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
