Friendship is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.
I understand small business growth. I was one.
Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.
The growth of understanding follows an ascending spiral rather than a straight line
All change is not growth; as all movement is not forward
A man's growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
There are no such things as limits to growth, because there are no limits to the human capacity for intelligence, imagination, and wonder.
Growth begins when we begin to accept our own weakness
The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it comes stronger than their democratic state itself.
Liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.
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.
All change is not growth as all movement is not forward.
Cities force growth and make people talkative and entertaining, but they also make them artificial.
If we do not rise to the challenge of our unique capacity to shape our lives, to seek the kinds of growth that we find individually fulfilling, then we can have no security: we will live in a world of sham, in which our selves are determined by the will of others, in which we will be constantly buffeted and increasingly isolated by the changes round us.

The mystical trend of our time, which shows itself particularly in the rampant growth of the so-called Theosophy and Spiritualism, is for me no more than a symptom of weakness and confusion. Since our inner experiences consist of reproductions, and combinations of sensory impressions, the concept of a soul without a body seem to me to be empty and devoid of meaning.
One aspect of modern life which has gone far to stifle men is the rapid growth of tremendous corporations. Enormous spiritual sacrifices are made in the transformation of shopkeepers into employees. . . . The disappearance of free enterprise has led to a submergence of the individual in the impersonal corporation in much the same manner as he has been submerged in the state in other lands.
I don't know what it is about fecundity that so appalls. I suppose it is the teeming evidence that birth and growth, which we value, are ubiquitous and blind, that life itself is so astonishingly cheap, that nature is as careless as it is bountiful, and that with extravagance goes a crushing waste that will one day include our own cheap lives.
People are like dirt. They can either nourish you and help you grow as a person or they can stunt your growth and make you wilt and die.
