Growth Cones

Famous quotes containing the words growth and/or cones:

    The English countryside, its growth and its destruction, is a genuine and tragic theme.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)

    Here was a little of everything in a small compass to satisfy the wants and the ambition of the woods,... but there seemed to me, as usual, a preponderance of children’s toys,—dogs to bark, and cats to mew, and trumpets to blow, where natives there hardly are yet. As if a child born into the Maine woods, among the pine cones and cedar berries, could not do without such a sugar-man or skipping-jack as the young Rothschild has.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
