10 Growth Quotes from Literature

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees--just as things grow in fast movies--I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer. ~ The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald "You must pay the penalty of growing-up, Paul. You must leave fairyland behind you." ~ Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomery Youth is a failing only too easily outgrown. ~ The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie Why, oh why must one grow up, why must one inherit this heavy, numbing responsibility of living an undiscovered life? Out of the nothingness and the undifferentiated mass, to make something of herself! But what? In the obscurity and pathlessness to take a direction! But whither? How take even one step? And yet, how stand still? This was torment indeed, to inherit the responsibility of one's own life. ~ The Rainbow by D. H. Lawrence "Nature never appeals to intelligence until habit and instinct are useless. There is no intelligence where there is no change and no need of change." ~ The Time Machine by H. G. Wells "Where, you tend a rose, my lad,
A thistle cannot grow." ~ The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett To bring deserving things down by setting undeserving things up is one of its perverted delights; and there is no playing fast and loose with the truth, in any game, without growing the worse for it. ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens "There are some trees, Watson, which grow to a certain height and then suddenly develop some unsightly eccentricity. You will see it often in humans. I have a theory that the individual represents in his development the whole procession of his ancestors, and that such a sudden turn to good or evil stands for some strong influence which came into the line of his pedigree. The person becomes, as it were, the epitome of the history of his own family." ~ The Adventure of the Empty House by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Mystery and disappointment are not absolutely indispensable to the growth of love, but they are, very often, its powerful auxiliaries. ~ Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens "I say that the strongest principle of growth lies in human choice." ~ Daniel Deronda by George Eliot
