Quote of the Day
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.
It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand. I beat people up.
It is my own firm belief that the strength of the soul grows in proportion as you subdue the flesh.
Death comes to all, but great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.
As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: you liberate a city by destroying it. Words are to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.
Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.
My reputation grows with every failure.
George Bernard Shaw
Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away.
A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
Doubt grows with knowledge.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
War grows out of the desire of the individual to gain advantage at the expense of his fellow man.
Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
I don't believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates.
T. S. Eliot
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
Gordon B. Hinckley
As the arteries grow hard, the heart grows soft.
H. L. Mencken
Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
What might be taken for a precocious genius is the genius of childhood. When the child grows up, it disappears without a trace. It may happen that this boy will become a real painter some day, or even a great painter. But then he will have to begin everything again, from zero.
My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectations.
Michael J. Fox

Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Whilst we deliberate how to begin a thing, it grows too late to begin it.
The heart never grows better by age; I fear rather worse, always harder. A young liar will be an old one, and a young knave will only be a greater knave as he grows older.
Kindness is the sunshine in which virtue grows.
Robert Green Ingersoll
