Growth quotes
Growth
1.

We find comfort among those who agree with us-growth among those who don't.

- Clark, Frank A.
2.

Human beliefs, like all other natural growths, elude the barrier of systems.

- Eliot, George
3.

WAR, n. A by-product of the arts of peace. The most menacing political condition is a period of international amity. The student of history who has not been taught to expect the unexpected may justly boast himself inaccessible to the light. "In time of peace prepare for war" has a deeper meaning than is commonly discerned; it means, not merely that all things earthly have an end -- that change is the one immutable and eternal law -- but that the soil of peace is thickly sown with the seeds of war and singularly suited to their germination and growth. It was when Kubla Khan had decreed his "stately pleasure dome" -- when, that is to say, there were peace and fat feasting in Xanadu -- that he heard from afar Ancestral voices prophesying war. One of the greatest of poets, Coleridge was one of the wisest of men, and it was not for nothing that he read us this parable. Let us have a little less of "hands across the sea," and a little more of that elemental distrust that is the security of nations. War loves to come like a thief in the night; professions of eternal amity provide the night.

- Ambrose Bierce
4.

Problems do not go away. They must be worked through or else they remain, forever a barrier to the growth and development of the spirit.

- Peck, M. Scott
5.

In human life, art may arise from almost any activity, and once it does so, it is launched on a long road of exploration, invention, freedom to the limits of extravagance, interference to the point of frustration, finally discipline, controlling constant change and growth.

- Susanne Langer
6.

The death of a dear friend, wife, brother, lover, which seemed nothing but privation, somewhat later assumes the aspect of a guide or genius; for it commonly operates revolutions in our way of life, terminates an epoch of infancy or of youth which was waiting to be closed, breaks up a wonted occupation, or a household, or style of living, and allows the formation of new ones more friendly to the growth of character.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
7.

By depending on the great, The small may rise high. See: the little plant ascending the tall tree Has climbed to the top.

- Pandita, Saskya
8.

Nirvana or lasting enlightenment or true spiritual growth can be achieved only through persistent exercise of real love.

- Peck, M. Scott
9.

There is a wide world out there, my friend, full of pain, but filled with joy as well. The former keeps you on the path of growth, and the latter makes the journey tolerable.

- R. A. Salvatore
10.

Confidence is a plant of slow growth in an aged heart.

- Pitt, William
11.

Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential.

- Lee, Bruce
12.

Growth demands a temporary surrender of security.

- Gail Sheehy
13.

Climb mountains to see lowlands.

- Proverb, Chinese
14.

Growth means change and change involves risk, stepping from the known to the unknown.

- Shinn, George
15.

From Mount Hollywood, Los Angeles looks rather nice, enveloped in a haze of changing colors. Actually, and in spite of all the healthful sunshine and ocean breezes, it is a bad place - full of old, dying people, who were born old of tired pioneer parents, victims of America - full of curious wild and poisonous growths, decadent religious cults and fake science, and wildcat enterprises, which, with their aim for quick profit, are doomed to collapse and drag down multitudes of people.

- Louis Adamic
16.

We find comfort among those who agree with us--growth among those who don't.

- Frank A Clark
17.

IDLENESS, n. A model farm where the devil experiments with seeds of new sins and promotes the growth of staple vices.

- Ambrose Bierce
18.

Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.

- Mandino, Og
19.

Success is no exclusive club. It is open to each individual who has the courage to choose his own goal and go after it. It is from this forward motion that human growth springs, and out of it comes the human essence known as character.

- Whitman, Howard
20.

The path by which some come to see the Light, to find the Rock of Ages, is the simple path of honest self-knowledge, self-renunciation, self-restraint, in which every upward step towards right exposes some fresh depth of inward sinfulness, till the once proud man, crushed down by the sense of his own infinite meanness, becomes a little child once more, and casts himself simply on the generosity of Him who made him. And then there may come to him the vision, dim, perhaps, and fitting ill into clumsy words, but clearer, surer, nearer to him than the ground on which he treads, or than the foot which treads it--the vision of an Everlasting Spiritual Substance, most Human and yet most Divine, who can endure; and who, standing beneath all things, can make their spiritual substance endure likewise, though all worlds and eons, birth and growth and death, matter and space and time, should melt indeed--
And like the baseless fabric of a vision, Leave not a rack behind.

- Preface to Tauler's Sermons. 1854.
