A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
All change is not growth; as all movement is not forward
Ellen Glasgow
All growth is a leap in the dark, a spontaneous, unpremeditated act without benefit of experience.
Henry Miller
But everything that may some day be possible to many the solitary man can now prepare and build with his hands, that err less. Therefore, dear sir, love your solitude and bear with sweet-sounding lamentation the suffering it causes you. For those who are near you are far, you say, and that shows it is beginning to grow wide about you. And when what is near you is far, then your distance is already among the stars and very large; rejoice in your growth, in which you naturally can take no one with you, and be kind to those who remain behind, and be sure and calm before them and do not torment them with your doubts and do not frighten them with your confidence or joy, which they could not understand. Seek yourself some sort of simple and loyal community with them, which need not necessarily change as you yourself become different and again different; love in them life in an unfamiliar form and be considerate of aging people, who fear that being-alone in which you trust.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.
John Fitzgerald Kennedy
Do one thing everyday that scares you.
Eleanor Roosevelt
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.
Bruce Lee
Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death
Albert Einstein
Our consciousness rarely registers the beginning of a growth within us any more than without us; there have been many circulation of the sap before we detect the smallest sign of the bud.
George Eliot
The strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice.
George Eliot
There are no such things as limits to growth, because there are no limits to the human capacity for intelligence, imagination, and wonder
Ronald Reagan
We find comfort among those who agree with us -- growth among those who don't.
Frank A. Clark
We've had bad luck with children; they've all grown up
Christopher Morley
When you're finished changing, you're finished.
Benjamin Franklin
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
Benjamin Franklin
