Whilst we deliberate how to begin a thing, it grows too late to begin it.
Death comes to all, but great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

Sammy Davis, Jr.
Conflict grows out of ignorance and suspicion.
Gordon B. Hinckley
The more that social democracy develops, grows, and becomes stronger, the more the enlightened masses of workers will take their own destinies, the leadership of their movement, and the determination of its direction into their own hands.
There is an invisible strength within us; when it recognizes two opposing objects of desire, it grows stronger.
Ambition is a lust that is never quenched, but grows more inflamed and madder by enjoyment.
Happiness grows at our own firesides, and is not to be picked in strangers' gardens.
Douglas William Jerrold
