Grew Up quotes by Bonnie Bedelia
#1. I grew up in a slum neighborhood - rows of tenements, with stoops, and kids all over the street. It was a real neighborhood - we played kick-the-can and ring-a-levio. #Quote by Bonnie Bedelia
Grew Up quotes by Bernie Finkelstein
#2. Listen- my relationship with radio on a personal level is nothing but a one way love-a-thon ... I love radio, I grew up on radio. That's where I heard Buddy Holly, that's where I heard Chuck Berry. I couldn't believe it the first time I heard one of my records on the radio, and I STILL love hearing anything I'm involved with on radio, and some of my best friends were from radio. But we were on different sides of that argument, there's no question about that. #Quote by Bernie Finkelstein
Grew Up quotes by Leigh Bardugo

"Less falls on me."

Grew Up quotes by Jennifer Garner

#5. I grew up in Bellport, Long Island where I attended Gateway Acting School and met Robin Allan. She was the school's director who took me under her wing and was the one who told me that I could do this for real. #Quote by Brendan Dooling
Grew Up quotes by Gemma Files
#6. Morrow's rush of disgust, temporary as it might prove, had nothing to do with the truths-turned-insults flung out. No. What riled Morrow ran far deeper - was the sheer perversity of Chess's own nature, that unbreakable wilfulness he'd always revered in himself, as sign and source of his own freedom. His stark refusal ever to be bound, to obey aught but his own whim and want.

Because while he could walk free and hold a gun Chess Pargeter answered to no man - no man, no law, no damn body, motherfucker. No ideal, no cause, no force but sheer chaos, bound and determined to move unimpeded and burn for the sake of burning. To never submit himself to ghost or hex or priest or even God, 'less he damn well wanted to.

No man except Ash Rook, that was - for a time. And after this last betrayal, from now on... not even him.

'Course not, Morrow's anger spoke back, unimpressed by Chess's well-tuned inner litany. That's 'cause you're nothing but a brat who never grew up - a skillet-hopping little hot-pants who knows everything 'bout killing and nothing at all 'bout living. Who spits on friendship, duty and honour not 'cause he's above them, so much as 'cause he don't know what they even mean - same way you don't really grasp how anything's real, 'cept if you want it, or it hurts you. And that's why you ended up givin' everything you had to a man who skinned you alive, then left you stranded down in Hell - 'cause he was what you wanted, and Christ forbid Ches #Quote by Gemma Files
Grew Up quotes by Yaya Han
#7. Cosplayers love Disney princesses. We all grew up with them. We identify with one or more princesses. #Quote by Yaya Han

Grew Up quotes by Andrea Barrett
#9. I grew up on Cape Cod. We didn't live right on the water, but I could walk to it and did every day. #Quote by Andrea Barrett

Grew Up quotes by Stacie Orrico
#11. I am very determined when it comes to my music, and I grew up just loving those singers who had that urban sort of feeling. So when it came down to making my record, I wanted to have that as well. ForeFront was really good about letting me go in that direction and then of course adding the more pop sounds. I feel very fortunate that I got to explore some unique and creative angles musically. #Quote by Stacie Orrico
Grew Up quotes by Ric Ocasek
#12. I've always been a fan of poetry. I grew up with Lawrence Ferlinghetti and the Beat poets. I really followed that stuff for a while. I just love the way people threw words around like they were painting. #Quote by Ric Ocasek
Grew Up quotes by John Templeton
#13. I grew up Presbyterian. Presbyterians thought the Methodists were wrong. Catholics thought all Protestants were wrong. The Jews thought the Christians were wrong. So, what I'm financing is humility. I want people to realize that you shouldn't think you know it all. #Quote by John Templeton

#14. I grew up in Los Angeles, where long drives on packed freeways make everyone a fan of radio and, particularly, of America's national treasure, National Public Radio. #Quote by Leila Janah
Grew Up quotes by John Shelby Spong
#15. When I grew up in the South, I was taught that segregation was the will of God, and the Bible was quoted to prove it. I was taught that women were by nature in inferior to men, and the Bible was quoted to prove it. I was taught that it was okay to hate other religions, and especially the Jews, and the Bible was quoted to prove it. #Quote by John Shelby Spong
Grew Up quotes by Alan Dean Foster
#16. A few, less constrained by pride and more resilient, survived and had children. Their offspring grew up with no illusions about the supremacy of humankind or anykind. They matured and observed the world around them through different eyes. Roll the log. Give and take. Bend with the wind. Adapt, adapt, adapt ... ! #Quote by Alan Dean Foster
Grew Up quotes by Justin Vernon
#17. The way I see it is that I grew up with a good set of values, but it was never too strict. I was always encouraged to be a free-thinking individual. I spent the first five years out of high school trying to make it work in Eau Claire, then I had to leave because there wasn't enough going on in town. #Quote by Justin Vernon
Grew Up quotes by Patricia Arquette
#18. I grew up with a lot of spirituality. It wasn't necessarily organized religion, because my mom was Jewish and my dad was Muslim. I went to Catholic school. There was a lot of conversation about comparative religions. #Quote by Patricia Arquette
Grew Up quotes by Mona Simpson
#19. I grew up as an only child with a single mother. Because we were poor and because I knew my father had emigrated from Syria, I imagined he looked like Omar Sharif. #Quote by Mona Simpson

#20. I didn't really watch action films growing up! I grew up on stuff like 'Anne of Green Gables' - that was more when I was in elementary school. It was all I ever watched. #Quote by Gina Carano
Grew Up quotes by Harvey Keitel
#21. I grew up with a lot of guys, some of them are dead, some of them are this and some of them that, and some of them very, very powerful, bright young men, who became this instead of that simply because of a lack of guidance - that's all. #Quote by Harvey Keitel
Grew Up quotes by Katherine A. Fowkes
#22. [A] new finding shows that while in the 1940s, three-quarters of those surveyed claimed to dream in black and white, today, three-quarters say the opposite, that they dream in color. This reversal is attributed to a change in the number of people who grew up watching color rather than black and white television ... another hint that our private dreams are intimately linked to our collective mediated experiences. #Quote by Katherine A. Fowkes
Grew Up quotes by Stone Gossard
#23. A significant event for me was learning Hank Williams, reconnecting with his music's simplicity, which inspired me to inhabit the same territory. It's different, because I grew up on Led Zeppelin, The Stooges and punk, so in that sense I'm mutating country and folk more than a few degrees. #Quote by Stone Gossard
Grew Up quotes by Kyrsten Sinema
#24. I didn't really have an interest in politics when I first entered the workforce. What I wanted to do was help people who grew up like me. When I was a kid growing up in Tucson, my father lost his job and we lost everything - including our home. We lived in an abandoned gas station for two years until we were able to get back on our feet. #Quote by Kyrsten Sinema
Grew Up quotes by Hale Appleman
#25. I grew up loving fantasy, adventure, and children's book series. At the time, I was in a place in LA where I wasn't working and I kind of thought to myself, "What do I really want to do? Like, what kind of role would be really exciting for me?" And I sort of thought about being in an adventurous, magical, fantastical world and a character that was powerful and sophisticated and perhaps even a dandy, that might have even passed in my head, and then I got an audition for the show [Magicians]shortly after. #Quote by Hale Appleman

Grew Up quotes by Mario
#29. I grew up in Baltimore which is a one of the biggest drug cities. I've seen a lot of drugs ... so it was always around me, but I never really indulged in those type of activities. I never used drugs in my life and I was blessed enough with the wisdom and the strength to move forward. #Quote by Mario
Grew Up quotes by Chris Carmack
#30. I grew up playing the saxophone. I joined the jazz band in high school, but somewhere along the way I realized the guys who strummed acoustic guitars at parties were the ones who got the attention.

Grew Up quotes by Ted Cruz

Grew Up quotes by Jello Biafra
#32. I was the kid in the class who was looking for the angles to question things or make wise-ass remarks, not knowing enough to be afraid of being myself or showing intelligence. But I wasn't the only kid like that in my classes because of where I grew up. I'm really thankful I grew up in a town where there were a lot of other mutant kids. I'm from Boulder, Colorado, which went through a lot of dramatic changes when I was growing up. #Quote by Jello Biafra
Grew Up quotes by Nouriel Roubini
#33. I am quite international. My background, born in Turkey. My family is a Jewish family from Iran, so I went from Turkey to Iran to Israel, and then grew up in Italy and ended up in U.S. for graduate school. So I tend to look at things from an international perspective, and I think that gives you a little bit of a broader view of what's going on. #Quote by Nouriel Roubini
Grew Up quotes by Carl Gardner
#34. My musical background in Tyler, Texas was quite outstanding. Uh, I grew up with, uh, with high school teachers who were in bands, they could play music. And we had a nine piece band there in Tyler, and I joined them when I was about, oh, 15 years old and traveled all over Texas in that band, playing for the elite oil people. Hah. And um, I was making about 50 bucks a night, and uh, it taught me, they taught me how to find my timing and to learn the songs that I wanted. #Quote by Carl Gardner
Grew Up quotes by Eric Carle
#35. Ever since I was very young, as far back as I can remember, I have loved making pictures. I knew even as a child that, when I grew up, I would be an artist of some kind. The lovely feeling of my pencil touching paper, a crayon making a star shape in my sketchbook, or my brush dipping into bright and colorful paints - these things affect me as joyfully today as they did all those years ago. #Quote by Eric Carle
Grew Up quotes by Richard McKenna
#36. My early book learning came to me as naturally as the seasons in ... the little town in which I grew up. ... Quite early I began to find a special charm in an unpeopled world ... of lava rock and sagebrush desert. ... I was often more purely happy at such times than I think I have ever been since. #Quote by Richard McKenna
Grew Up quotes by Zadie Smith
#37. While she was becoming, everyone grew up and became. #Quote by Zadie Smith
Grew Up quotes by Rebecca Ferguson
#38. We grew up in Woolton, Liverpool. We didn't have much, but it was irrelevant. We played out a lot with all the kids on the street. #Quote by Rebecca Ferguson
Grew Up quotes by Florence King
#39. To make sure I learned the etiquette of grieving, Granny took me with her to the many funerals she attended. O Death, where is thy sting? Search me. I grew up looking at so many corpses that I still feel a faint touch of surprise whenever I see people move. #Quote by Florence King
Grew Up quotes by Avril Lavigne
#40. Influences come from everywhere. I don't really feel like I had too many influences for the first record because I grew up listening to music in church, and that was pretty much it. I didn't really grow up listening to AC/DC and all those bands. #Quote by Avril Lavigne
Grew Up quotes by Eric Swalwell
#41. I support gun safety measures, and I'll tell you, I grew up in a family of gun owners and hunters, and I went hunting with my dad as a kid, and you know, I have deep respect for the Second Amendment and the culture of our country. #Quote by Eric Swalwell
Grew Up quotes by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
#42. Why are some countries able, despite their very real and serious problems, to press ahead along the road to reconciliation, recovery, and redevelopment while others cannot? These are critical questions for Africa, and their answers are complex and not always clear. Leadership is crucial, of course. Kagame was a strong leader–decisive, focused, disciplined, and honest–and he remains so today. I believe that sometimes people's characters are molded by their environment. Angola, like Liberia, like Sierra Leone, is resource-rich, a natural blessing that sometimes has the sad effect of diminishing the human drive for self-sufficiency, the ability and determination to maximize that which one has. Kagame had nothing. He grew up in a refugee camp, equipped with only his own strength of will and determination to create a better life for himself and his countrymen. #Quote by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Grew Up quotes by Mark Ruffalo
#43. I did grow up in Kenosha, Wisconsin, around a lot of my mom's family. I had a lot of cousins and aunts and uncles around me, and my sisters and my brother. Probably the most formative part of it was that we grew up on the edge of a forest. It wasn't a big forest, but it was enough. When you're a kid, it feels gigantic. #Quote by Mark Ruffalo
Grew Up quotes by Robert Jackson Bennett
#44. I love its potential. I hate its past. And I don't like what it is.' She hugs her knees close to her chest. 'The way you feel about the place you grew up in is a lot like how you feel about your family. #Quote by Robert Jackson Bennett
Grew Up quotes by Henry Thomas
#45. I grew up in a rural area, I was from kind of a poor family and my parents weren't showbiz people. But going back was strange, and perhaps stranger for the other students. #Quote by Henry Thomas
Grew Up quotes by Kevin Systrom
#46. I grew up as a photo nut. Every Christmas I would get a new camera. It's a huge part of my life. #Quote by Kevin Systrom
Grew Up quotes by Kate Beckinsale
#47. I grew up as an only child and my mother was also an only child, so we were both very passionate about reading. I think I passed that on to my daughter, who went plowing through 'Harry Potter' and every other book possible! #Quote by Kate Beckinsale
Grew Up quotes by Shirley Abbott
#48. If I grew up in the simple-minded belief that women were as strong and intelligent as men, it was because I came from a society that had once believed it. #Quote by Shirley Abbott
Grew Up quotes by Buckethead
#49. We are civilized animals, right? Then why do we continue to slaughter for sport? What if you were a Chicken, how would you feel? I grew up in a Chicken Coop and I was not a Chicken at first, until I was faced with your World! #Quote by Buckethead
Grew Up quotes by Pat Conroy
#50. Mother, with her upbringing in the primitive Baptist church, believed that converting to Roman Catholicism was a step upward in the social order. Of course she was wrong; when I grew up in the South, a Roman Catholic was the weirdest thing you could be. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Grew Up quotes by Veronica Roth
#51. So this is where you grew up. Did you like it here? I guess you couldn't have, if you wanted to leave.' CHRISTINA
'I liked some things and hated some things. And there were some things I didn't know I had until I lost them.' TRIS #Quote by Veronica Roth

Grew Up quotes by John Logan
#54. I grew up on the Bond movies. The first one I saw was 'Diamonds Are Forever,' when I was a kid. I just loved them to pieces. #Quote by John Logan
Grew Up quotes by Kris Kristofferson
#55. I grew up in a time when people believed in duty, honor and country. My grandfathers were both officers. My father was a General in the Air Force. My brother and I were both in the Army. I've always felt a kinship with soldiers; I think it's possible to support the warrior and be against the war. #Quote by Kris Kristofferson
Grew Up quotes by Rachael Harris
#56. I grew up in a suburb of Ohio, in a small town, and I resonated with that small-town feeling where everybody knows your business. #Quote by Rachael Harris
Grew Up quotes by Randall Wallace
#57. I grew up a Baptist and went to seminary at Methodist school, Duke University, but I also don't worry too much about denominations. I love what John Wesley said - "If our hearts are together, let's not worry about whether our heads are together. If our hearts are together, then let's joins hands." So, I try to do that regardless of denominations. #Quote by Randall Wallace
Grew Up quotes by Merry Clayton
#58. Oh boy, I grew up hearing Sam Cooke, The Soul Stirrers, Mahalia Jackson, sitting on Mahalia Jackson's lap in my dad's church. #Quote by Merry Clayton
Grew Up quotes by Ransom Riggs
#59. I couldn't stop myself, so I thought about all the bad things and I fed it and fed it until I was crying so hard I had to gasp for breath between sobs. I thought about how my great-grandparents had starved to death. I thought about their wasted bodies being fed to incinerators because people they didn't know hated them. I thought about how the children who lived in this house had been burned up and blown apart because a pilot who didn't care pushed a button. I thought about how my grandfather's family had been taken from him, and how because of that my dad grew up feeling like he didn't have a dad, and now I had acute stress and nightmares and was sitting alone in a falling-down house and crying hot, stupid tears all over my shirt. All because of a seventy-year-old hurt that had somehow been passed down to me like some poisonous heirloom, and monsters I couldn't fight because they were all dead, beyond killing or punishing or any kind of reckoning. At least my grandfather had been able to join the army and go fight them. What could I do? #Quote by Ransom Riggs
Grew Up quotes by Jeff Corwin
#60. Whether it's exploring the woods around where I grew up, or even today exploring the coastal habitats and environments where I live in New England, or in a remote wilderness we're featuring in one of my series - I love to be in the field and I love to explore. #Quote by Jeff Corwin
Grew Up quotes by Gabe Polsky
#61. My parents are from the former Soviet Union, from Ukraine, and I grew up wanting to be a professional hockey player. #Quote by Gabe Polsky
Grew Up quotes by Shawn Levy
#62. I don't know if it's that my own childhood felt brief, or I grew up too fast, or I was pushing myself too much at a young age, but I do feel like I am clinging to a certain childlike quality in myself, as a result of a childhood that was sometimes complicated. #Quote by Shawn Levy
Grew Up quotes by Venus Williams
#63. You learn so much from your parents. We grew up in a home where we were definitely taught to be confident. I definitely give me parents a lot of credit. #Quote by Venus Williams
Grew Up quotes by Beverly Lewis
#64. I grew up Protestant. My dad was a Charismatic pastor of the Families of God denomination. Often, we noticed that - during a lot of his evangelistic-type services - that some of the Amish and Old Order Mennonite couples would come and stand across the street from the church and look in the door. #Quote by Beverly Lewis
Grew Up quotes by Steven Curtis Chapman
#65. Writing songs out of my faith was a real natural progression. I grew up singing in my dad's choir and singing with my family. Christian music became the music that I identified myself with and was a way that I expressed my faith. Even at a public school I would take my Christian music in and play it for my friends. #Quote by Steven Curtis Chapman
Grew Up quotes by Benjamin Carson
#66. I grew up in Detroit. I grew up in an environment where you were supposed to be Democrat, where they told you that Republicans were evil people and that they were racist. #Quote by Benjamin Carson
Grew Up quotes by Blake Lively
#67. I came from a big family - two brothers and two sisters. So, there were always a ton of boys around and a ton of girls around. So, I grew up comfortable with both sexes. #Quote by Blake Lively
Grew Up quotes by Lauren Myracle
#68. I'm a southern girl, and I grew up with this slightly schizophrenic upbringing where I bounced back and forth between Atlanta, Georgia, and a tiny mountain town called Brevard, North Carolina. My parents were divorced, and my two lives were very different because of socioeconomic reasons. #Quote by Lauren Myracle
Grew Up quotes by Bill Moyers
#69. In those days [1955], affirmative action was for whites only. I might still be working for the grocery store in the small Texas town where I grew up were it not for affirmative action for Southern white boys. #Quote by Bill Moyers
Grew Up quotes by Eric Clapton
#70. I have no problem with religion, and I grew up with a strong curiosity about spiritual matters, but my searching took me away from church and community worship to the internal journey. Before my recovery began, I found my God in music and the arts, with writers like Hermann Hesse, and musicians like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, and Little Walter. #Quote by Eric Clapton
Grew Up quotes by Paula Hawkins
#71. I grew up in Zimbabwe in Southern Africa, and I moved to London when I was 17. And I started commuting and, actually, to go to college. And I used to really enjoy that part of my journey where the - it was actually a Tube train, but it was over ground, and it went right past the backs of people's houses, and I could actually see right in. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Grew Up quotes by Christian Fennesz
#72. I grew up in a small village close to a big lake. There are heavy winds there, and they always sound different. I like these sounds best. #Quote by Christian Fennesz
Grew Up quotes by Garth Greenwell
#73. I grew up at the height of the AIDS panic, when desire and disease seemed essentially bound together, the relationship between them not something that could be managed but absolute and unchangeable, a consequence and its cause. Disease was the only story anyone ever told about men like me where I was from, and it flattened my life to a morality tale, in which I could be either chaste or condemned. Maybe that's why, when I finally did have sex, it wasn't so much pleasure I sought as the exhilaration of setting aside restraint, of pretending not to be afraid, a thrill of release so intense it was almost suicidal. #Quote by Garth Greenwell
Grew Up quotes by Steven Soderbergh
#74. I'm still very affected and moved by their music - maybe in a way that's different from someone who grew up around it. #Quote by Steven Soderbergh
Grew Up quotes by Julia Stiles
#75. I pretty much grew up in public. #Quote by Julia Stiles
Grew Up quotes by Chris Tomlin
#76. My dad taught me to play the guitar. We grew up with country music. We had every Willie Nelson record (laughs). I was saved at a young age and had a great desire to follow God. I was really focused on that through my whole life, even as a kid and through high school. #Quote by Chris Tomlin
Grew Up quotes by Adepero Oduye
#77. I grew up in New York and I've always lived here, so I look at myself as a regular person. When somebody recognizes me from the film - and it can be a wide range of people, which shows the power of film - I feel like they're talking about someone else we both know. I just find it hard to believe that anyone would stop me to share how much they loved something that I was a part of. #Quote by Adepero Oduye
Grew Up quotes by Harry West
#78. My father builds homes. So I grew up around the idea that you can take a piece of land, and you can bulldozer it and build new homes on it. You can create something new. #Quote by Harry West
Grew Up quotes by Nina LaCour
#79. A terrible day," Frank echoes.
"Yes," Edie says, her gaze never leaving Ava's face. "But look. You grew up anyway. #Quote by Nina LaCour
Grew Up quotes by Howard Schultz
#80. I was born on the other side of the tracks, in public housing in Brooklyn, New York. My dad never made more than $20,000 a year, and I grew up in a family that lost health insurance. So I was scarred at a young age with understanding what it was like to watch my parents lose access to the American dream. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Grew Up quotes by Berkeley Breathed
#81. I grew up in Los Angeles and always wished I'd spent a childhood in a far different place. #Quote by Berkeley Breathed
Grew Up quotes by Meghan Trainor
#82. My uncle is from Trinidad, so, ever since I was 7, I grew up listening to Soca, the genre that's from there. It's my favorite sound. #Quote by Meghan Trainor
Grew Up quotes by Billy Sherwood
#83. I grew up in a very musical family, my father was a musician and a big band leader and made records. #Quote by Billy Sherwood
Grew Up quotes by Amos Lee

Grew Up quotes by Roselee Goldberg
#85. I grew up as a dancer. I did tap, classical ballet, all of that. I did Indian dancing, or Bharata Natyam, classic temple dancing from Madras, originally. My mother always had the great idea that I should learn it. #Quote by Roselee Goldberg
Grew Up quotes by Greg Brenneman
#86. I do not run late. Growing up on a farm, you're just not late when it's time to do chores or go to work. I grew up Mennonite, and so that work ethic and timeliness was just ingrained in me from a very young age. #Quote by Greg Brenneman
Grew Up quotes by Nate Ruess
#87. We grew up listening to alternative music from the '90s, and there was no shame in being on a major label and still making the music you wanted to make. I feel like rap rock came around and drew a line in the sand, and everybody that was like me ran away from that and started making indie-rock. #Quote by Nate Ruess
Grew Up quotes by Don Scardino
#88. I grew up in Queens, and on Sunday evenings, my parents would drive my brother and me past the factory. We could smell the week's supply of bread baking. I always connected the 59th Street Bridge with that scent. Who woulda thunk, years later, I'd be there, directing and producing a hit TV show? #Quote by Don Scardino
Grew Up quotes by Robert Fulghum
#89. I am sometimes amazed at what we did not fully grasp in kindergarten. In the years I was a parish minister I was always taken aback when someone came to me and said. 'I've just come from the doctor and he told me I have only a limited time to live'. I was always tempted to shout 'WHAT? You didn't know? You had to pay a doctor to tell you - at your age? Where were you the week in kingergarten when you got the little cup with the cotton and water and seed? Life happened - remember? A plant grew up and the roots grew down. A miracle. And then a few days later the plant was dead. DEAD. Life is short. Were you asleep that week or home sick or what? #Quote by Robert Fulghum
Grew Up quotes by Tommy Lee
#90. The New York Dolls are the only band that we grew up on that we haven't played with. #Quote by Tommy Lee
Grew Up quotes by Kami Garcia
#91. Maybe magic wasn't the magic thing, when you grew up with it #Quote by Kami Garcia
Grew Up quotes by Zinedine Zidane
#92. I am proud of where I come from and never forget the people I grew up with. Wherever I go, La Castellane is where I want to go back to. #Quote by Zinedine Zidane
Grew Up quotes by Anne Michaels
#93. I do not believe home is where we're born, or the place we grew up, not a birthright or an inheritance, not a name, or blood or country. It is not even the soft part that hurts when touched, that defines our loneliness the way a bowl defines water. It will not be located in a smell or taste or talisman or a word…
Home is our first real mistake. It is the one error that changes everything, the one lesson you could let destroy you. It is from this moment that we begin to build our home in the world. It is this place that we furnish with smell, taste, a talisman, a name. #Quote by Anne Michaels
Grew Up quotes by Carly Steel
#94. I like to style myself, as my first job out of university was working at 'Vogue' magazine in NYC, and I grew up attending the collections with my mother, so I have a particular aesthetic, which is classic glamour with a twist. #Quote by Carly Steel
Grew Up quotes by Kieran Bew
#95. I did quite a lot of fencing when I was a kid, I was a swimmer, and I played a lot of basketball. I was a fencer for Great Britain, but I only did that because I watched Robin Hood, Star Wars, Highlander and The Three Musketeers, and I wanted to emulate Richard Harris and the great British actors that I grew up watching. #Quote by Kieran Bew
Grew Up quotes by Mac Barnett
#96. I read The Stinky Cheese Man as an adult. I missed that book when I was a kid. I grew up mostly with books bought at yard sales, picture books from the fifties to 1975, which is really a lucky thing. #Quote by Mac Barnett
Grew Up quotes by Action Bronson
#97. I grew up in the '90s. My goal isn't to be a '90s rapper, but I have little hints of '90s influence in my music. It's a modern approach to classic rap. #Quote by Action Bronson
Grew Up quotes by Karen Mills
#98. I grew up in a family business ... that really has provided the core of my belief in American small business, and in America's ability to grow and operate important businesses that can compete and be successful. #Quote by Karen Mills
Grew Up quotes by Gena Showalter
#99. When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?" ( ... )
A sigh of longing. "To be honest, I wanted to be ruler of the entire world. Or the ruler's trophy wife. #Quote by Gena Showalter
Grew Up quotes by Olga Tokarczuk
#100. I grew up in a beautiful era, now sadly in the past. In it there was great readiness for change, and a talent for creating revolutionary visions. Nowadays no one still has the courage to think up anything new. All they ever talk about, round the clock, is how things already are, they just keep rolling out the same old ideas. Reality has grown old and gone senile; after all, it is definitely subject to the same laws as every living organism - it ages. Just like the cells of the body, its tiniest components - the senses, succumb to apoptosis. Apoptosis is natural death, brought about by the tiredness and exhaustion of matter. In Greek this word means 'the dropping of petals.' The world has dropped its petals. #Quote by Olga Tokarczuk
Grew Up quotes by J. California Cooper
#101. I was telling stories before I could write. I like to tell stories, and I like to talk to things. If you]ve read fairy tales, you know that everything can talk,from trees to chairs to tables to brooms. So I grew up thinking that, and I turned it into stories. #Quote by J. California Cooper
Grew Up quotes by Marlon James
#102. I grew up with reggae. Reggae is like family. I know it, and there's a type of love and familiarity, but sometimes you want to hang out with other people. #Quote by Marlon James
Grew Up quotes by Daniel Radcliffe
#103. Both of my parents have been actors; there were a lot of show tunes on in the car all of the time. I grew up with that. #Quote by Daniel Radcliffe
Grew Up quotes by Selenis Leyva

Grew Up quotes by Bob Proctor
#105. It doesn't matter how you grew up, or what you've struggled with in life - your mind is unscathed by any circumstance you've yet to live and it's phenomenally powerful. #Quote by Bob Proctor
Grew Up quotes by Rosemary Mahoney
#106. I grew up in New England at the edge of the Atlantic and have for many years been an avid rower. I've rowed in various places, including the Ganges in India, the River Shannon in Ireland, and the Sea of Galilee. #Quote by Rosemary Mahoney
Grew Up quotes by Alejandro Zambra
#107. The novel belongs to our parents, I thought then, I think now. That's what we grew up believing, that the novel belonged to our parents. We cursed them, and also took refuge in their shadows, relieved. While the adults killed or were killed, we drew pictures in a corner. While the country was falling to pieces, we were learning to talk, to walk, to fold napkins in the shapes of boats, of airplanes. While the novel was happening, we played hide-and-seek, we played at disappearing. #Quote by Alejandro Zambra
Grew Up quotes by Terry Farrell
#108. I grew up on red meat and corn. But I don't eat like that anymore. #Quote by Terry Farrell
Grew Up quotes by Laura Linney
#109. My family is from the South, and I can remember all those ladies I grew up with, like my great-aunts, who had handkerchiefs. There's something sweet about them. #Quote by Laura Linney
Grew Up quotes by Eric Thomas
#110. I don't care if you broke, you grew up broke ... you grew up rich. You only get 24hrs in a day! We all only get 24 hours in a day. It's what we do with it that makes the difference! #Quote by Eric Thomas
Grew Up quotes by Bobby Fischer
#111. I grew up with the concept of freedom of speech. So I'm too old, it's too late for me to adjust to the new world, the new world order. #Quote by Bobby Fischer
Grew Up quotes by John Lennon
#112. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down happy. #Quote by John Lennon
Grew Up quotes by Ryan Gosling
#113. I grew up Mormon. I wasn't really Mormon, my parents were. #Quote by Ryan Gosling
Grew Up quotes by America Ferrera
#114. I mean, I grew up in the Valley. All my friends were white Jewish kids. So the Latino kids thought I was this white girl. #Quote by America Ferrera
Grew Up quotes by Patrick Soon-Shiong
#115. Baseball is like cricket, and I grew up in a country where they had cricket. So I understand cricket, soccer and basketball. I played basketball at the club level and a little bit in college, so that's why I'm a basketball fanatic. #Quote by Patrick Soon-Shiong
Grew Up quotes by Rosamunde Pilcher
#116. As long as Mumma was alive, she knew that some small part of herself had remained a child, cherished and adored. Perhaps you never completely grew up until your mother died. #Quote by Rosamunde Pilcher
Grew Up quotes by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
#117. Trauma happens to us, our friends, our families, and our neighbors. Research by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has shown that one in five Americans was sexually molested as a child; one in four was beaten by a parent to the point of a mark being left on their body; and one in three couples engages in physical violence. A quarter of us grew up with alcoholic relatives, and one out of eight witnessed their mother being beaten or hit.1 #Quote by Bessel A. Van Der Kolk
Grew Up quotes by Peter Sohn
#118. I grew up on Shane movie and my mother loves it and I've watched it hundreds of times. #Quote by Peter Sohn
Grew Up quotes by Howard Shore
#119. I grew up in repertory theaters, so it was comedy one night, drama the next. I'm used to going from one to the other. And I worked for years in television as well. So, I like the interrelationship of it and having a good relationship with a group of artists creating something really where the sum is greater than all of our individual contributions, our parts. #Quote by Howard Shore
Grew Up quotes by Amory Lovins
#120. In the model that we grew up with, governments rule physical territory in which national economies function, and strong economies support hegemonic military power. In the new model, already emerging under our noses, economic decisions don't pay much attention to national sovereignty in a world where more than half of the one hundred or two hundred largest economic entities are not countries but companies. #Quote by Amory Lovins
Grew Up quotes by Harper Lee
#121. Kill a Mockingbird's small-town setting is what stuck with NBC's Tom Brokaw, who grew up in small towns throughout South Dakota and knew "not just the pressures that [Atticus] was under, but the magnifying glass that he lived in. This all takes place in a very small environment. People who live in big cities don't have any idea of what the pressures can be like in a small town when there's something controversial going on." When Allan Gurganus read To Kill a Mockingbird, #Quote by Harper Lee
Grew Up quotes by Jonah Hill
#122. Yeah I grew up in the public eye. I became a man in the public eye, which is kind of a bizarre thing to come to terms with. Now I'm in my late 20s and I was in my early 20s when I became recognizable. But I think 'Moneyball' represents a very strong shift in my career and becoming an adult and a man. #Quote by Jonah Hill
Grew Up quotes by Jacob Artist
#123. I grew up dancing my whole life, and I always kind of perceived that's what I would do professionally. But when I caught the acting bug, I knew I needed to go with no turning back. #Quote by Jacob Artist
Grew Up quotes by Larry Buchanan
#124. I was doing acting work at Fox - bit pieces with Greg Peck in The Gunfighter and things like that - and grew up more or less as a Fox contract player in about two years. #Quote by Larry Buchanan
Grew Up quotes by Lois McMaster Bujold
#125. Miles was ... the thing is, he was afflicted with a severe birth injury. He grew up pretty much crippled, so he poured all his frustrated energy into his intellect. Since the Vorkosigan family motto might as well be, Anything worth achieving is worth overachieving, the effect was pretty frightening. And it worked for him, so he did it some more. #Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold
Grew Up quotes by Lauren Gardner
#126. I had a great time cheering for the team that I grew up idolizing and watching. The best part about the experience was the friendships I made and being part of an organization that is so involved with the community. #Quote by Lauren Gardner
Grew Up quotes by Questlove
#127. I grew up in somewhat of a war zone in West Philadelphia in 1985, '86. It wasn't as extreme as someone coming in the classroom and just unloading on a class, but I knew to take the scenic route to go to the grocery store to avoid certain elements. #Quote by Questlove
Grew Up quotes by Nancy Grace
#128. I grew up in a courtroom kind of like the one you saw in 'To Kill a Mockingbird' - big, big courtroom, sometimes it didn't even have air conditioning. #Quote by Nancy Grace
Grew Up quotes by Mark Goddard
#129. One thing that is almost always said to me is, I grew up with you. They are meeting me and feel that they actually grew up with me. I was with them during their play hours and thinking hours. I was a part of their childhoods. That's one of the most amazing things. #Quote by Mark Goddard
Grew Up quotes by Emmanuel Jal
#130. I grew up in poverty. For 25 years I was fed on aid. #Quote by Emmanuel Jal
Grew Up quotes by William Monahan
#131. London exists normally in a state of bleach bypass. There's the artistic context of "Blow Up" and "Performance" and all the Sixties and Seventies British films that I grew up on, because I did very much grow up on British films. #Quote by William Monahan
Grew Up quotes by Jan Morris
#132. I did not know exactly where it was - in my head, in my heart, in my loins, in my dreams. Nor did I know whether to be ashamed of it, proud of it, grateful for it, resentful of it. Sometimes I thought I would be happier without it, sometimes I felt it must be essential to my being. Perhaps one day, when I grew up, I would be as solid as other people appeared to be; but perhaps I was meant always to be a creature of wisp or spindrift, loitering in this inconsequential way almost as though I were intangible. I #Quote by Jan Morris
Grew Up quotes by Elvis Presley
#133. We do two shows a night for five weeks. A lotta times we'll go upstairs and sing until daylight - gospel songs. We grew up with it ... It more or less puts your mind at ease. It does mine. #Quote by Elvis Presley
Grew Up quotes by Anna Kendrick
#134. People who grew up in major cities may wonder why the hell I would act like it's a big deal to be unaccompanied in New York City at that age. It's populated with both adults and children, it's a functioning metropolis, Kevin McCallister was only ten in Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, and that kid saved Christmas. Conversely, people from suburban areas act like my parents sent me wandering around the site of the Baby Jessica well, blindfolded and holding a flaming baton. So pick a side and prepare to judge me wither way! #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Grew Up quotes by Wole Soyinka

Grew Up quotes by Ian Rush
#137. I realised I'd been spoiled at Liverpool. We were used to winning. In Italy I grew up as a person. I didn't enjoy the football, mind. It was very defensive, but I became a better player because of the work I had to do around the box. Off the pitch, I learned about what to eat and what to drink to be successful, and I learned about life. #Quote by Ian Rush
Grew Up quotes by Navid Negahban
#138. I grew up during the Revolution of Iran and the war between Iran and Iraq. The things that I saw. The impact. How it changes you. How it changes the way you look at the world. #Quote by Navid Negahban
Grew Up quotes by Uzo Aduba
#139. My family is first-generation Nigerian, and we grew up in a very small, suburban town in New England, Massachusetts. So I do understand what it feels like to be an 'only' in that regard. #Quote by Uzo Aduba
Grew Up quotes by Michael Rispoli
#140. I grew up around hardware. I could sell you all the plumbing and electricity you want. #Quote by Michael Rispoli
Grew Up quotes by Page Hamilton
#141. The problem is that the internet IS some kid in a basement with an opinion. The fact that David Bowie and Elton John told me that they were fans of Helmet - or Neil Young - that means something to me because I grew up on their music and they're great musicians ... That means more to me than some guy who hates the fact that my hair is short. #Quote by Page Hamilton
Grew Up quotes by Liev Schreiber
#142. I grew up in the Lower East Side of New York. #Quote by Liev Schreiber
Grew Up quotes by Bill Huizenga

Grew Up quotes by CC Sabathia
#144. I grew up with video games. My generation kind of grew up with the Nintendo and the Sega Genesis. Then, I had a Dreamcast and, finally, the PlayStation. So yeah, I've always been a big gamer. #Quote by CC Sabathia
Grew Up quotes by John Ruskin
#145. I had no companions to quarrel with, nobody to assist, and nobody to thank ... the evil consequence of all this was not, however, what might perhaps have been expected, that I grew up selfish or non affectionate; but that, when affection did come, it came with a violence utterly rampant and unmanageable. #Quote by John Ruskin
Grew Up quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#146. We were born in this society, we grew up in this society. And we learn to be like everyone else, playing nonsense all the time. #Quote by Miguel Ruiz
Grew Up quotes by Kesha

Grew Up quotes by Lev Grossman
#149. I went to college at Harvard, then did three years of graduate school at Yale. At both places I studied comparative literature. People find it odd that I went to both Harvard and Yale, and I guess it is odd, but that's just what people did where I grew up. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Grew Up quotes by Al Roker
#150. I grew up with my grandparents around. I think that's important for a child. If for no other reason than to hear stories about their parents when they were children. #Quote by Al Roker
Grew Up quotes by Jose Gonzalez
#151. I grew up with a strong Spanish influence. I tried to learn flamenco when I was younger. But it's like my teacher said: 'It takes a lifetime to learn flamenco.' #Quote by Jose Gonzalez
Grew Up quotes by Naomie Harris
#152. Mom's a writer, so I grew up reading scripts and I have a real respect for them and I know how much thought goes into creating a role, so I'm always interested to find out what was the thought process of the writer and how best can I convey it rather than trying to change it to suit myself. #Quote by Naomie Harris
Grew Up quotes by Erica Cerra

Grew Up quotes by Bill Hader

Grew Up quotes by Steve Martin
#155. The Serzone is a gift from God that frees her from the immobilising depression that would otherwise surround her and seep into her body like a poisonous fog. The drug distances the depression from her, although it is never out of sight ... The depression she battles is not the newly acquired symptom of a young woman now living in Los Angeles on her own. It was first set in the bow in Vermont, where she grew up, and fired as a companion arrow that has travelled with her ever since. #Quote by Steve Martin
Grew Up quotes by Tom Odell
#156. I grew up in the suburbs of a small town on the south coast where the only opportunity I ever got to wear anything smart was a funeral, so I had never owned a piece of clothing worth more than £40. #Quote by Tom Odell
Grew Up quotes by Eiza Gonzalez
#157. I studied in American school, so yes, I grew up speaking English and Spanish. Obviously, Spanish is my first language. #Quote by Eiza Gonzalez

Grew Up quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#159. Because I grew up with a drill sergeant in my life, I respect order and it really gave me the discipline to be a leader and not a follower. It also helped me stay out of trouble. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Grew Up quotes by Shayne Ward
#160. I grew up in Manchester in a big Irish family - there are seven of us in all - so my life has always been about role-playing, about doing anything for a laugh. I'm always joking about; that's the way I am. #Quote by Shayne Ward
Grew Up quotes by Stuart Scott
#161. A lot of rappers say 'I'm talking about stuff that goes on, what I grew up in, that I know about.' And these journalists say, 'Yeah, but you're making 80 million dollars, that stuff's not about you.' Look how long he's been making 80 million. He grew up poor in an urban city and the things he's experienced and knows. #Quote by Stuart Scott
Grew Up quotes by Kourtney Kardashian
#162. I've always loved children's clothes - my grandmother actually owned a children's boutique in La Jolla, CA, for 30 years. I grew up visiting her and working in her store, and then my mom and I had a children's boutique together for five or six years. #Quote by Kourtney Kardashian
Grew Up quotes by Jason Aldean

Grew Up quotes by Julia Kasdorf
#167. living, we cover vast territories; imagine your life drawn on a map - a scribble where you grew up, each bus trip traced between school and home, or a clean line across the sea to a place you flew once. think of the time and things we accumulate, all the while growing more conscious of losing and leaving #Quote by Julia Kasdorf
Grew Up quotes by Aziz Ansari

Grew Up quotes by Lisa Loeb
#169. Where I grew up in Dallas, things might be a little more traditional. People have the same things in mind. They're supposed to grow up, go to college, get a job, get married, and have children, grandchildren. That's the world I grew up in. #Quote by Lisa Loeb
Grew Up quotes by Idina Menzel
#170. As an artist, you have to express yourself. I make no excuses for my versatility. I grew up singing classical arias, but I love rock n' roll and jazz standards. #Quote by Idina Menzel
Grew Up quotes by David Mamet
#171. My dad was an immigrant kid and a Democrat and a Jew, and we didn't know any Republicans in our group. So I grew up Democratic. My dad was a labor lawyer - a very hardworking guy, a one-horse labor lawyer - and then I went to hippie college and lived in the bubble. #Quote by David Mamet
Grew Up quotes by Natasha Pulley
#172. I just hate Paris. I'm surprised more people don't have some sort of allergic reaction.'
Thaniel decided to let it lie, whatever it was. 'Only you could hate Paris.'

Grew Up quotes by Regina Brett
#173. I grew up Catholic. We went to confession on Saturday, stood in the shortest line, since it led to the priest who gave the easiest penance - usually a few Our Fathers and Hail Marys. We confessed in private, prayed our penance and our souls were clean. #Quote by Regina Brett
Grew Up quotes by Adam Beach
#174. I never understood the realism of an imaginary circumstance. While I was doing 'Smoke Signals,' I relied on my instinct and what I grew up with. I had this energy, but it was a one-dimensional thing. #Quote by Adam Beach
Grew Up quotes by David Ulevitch
#175. I grew up in Del Mar, Calif., north of San Diego. I got my first job the summer after eighth grade at a small Internet service provider. #Quote by David Ulevitch
Grew Up quotes by Norman Sunshine
#176. We both grew up at a time when homosexuality was not even spoken about. There were certainly no books that could help a young person understand that two people of the same sex could build a happy, productive and loving life together. When we entered our 50th year, another same sex couple told us we were 'an inspiration', so we began to feel we had the responsibility to make what we've experienced available to others. We also wanted to show people who were not gay that our life was not unlike theirs. We are all pretty much the same, so we deserve equal protection under the Constitution. #Quote by Norman Sunshine
Grew Up quotes by Tim Story
#177. All I want is the same opportunities as the filmmakers I grew up admiring. But you know, I've had lots of amazing opportunities to do the movies I wanted to do. If I could write my future, I'd want to keep making character-based films that can make use of my voice as a filmmaker. #Quote by Tim Story
Grew Up quotes by Larry The Cable Guy
#178. My dad was a non-denominational preacher, actually a Congregationalist which is really where all congregations come to congregate. That's why it's called a Congregationalist. Later on in life, he just became a non-denominational preacher, kind of a fire and brimstone type guy. That's how I grew up. #Quote by Larry The Cable Guy
Grew Up quotes by Sean Maguire
#179. For me, personally, I grew up watching American heroes and American movies and TV. #Quote by Sean Maguire

Grew Up quotes by Shivya Nath
#183. I remember the years I had been too afraid to dream of sitting on the ledge of a humble yellow house, chatting with a family that wasn't my own, chatting in a language that wasn't my own, in a part of the world so far away from the one I grew up in and yet not that different. #Quote by Shivya Nath

Grew Up quotes by Laura Esquivel

Grew Up quotes by Yochai Benkler

Grew Up quotes by Taylor Lautner

Grew Up quotes by Neil Gaiman
#191. There was the kind of silence there might have been on the day before Creation.
Adam stood smiling at the two of them, a small figure perfectly poised exactly between Heaven and Hell.

Grew Up quotes by Teddy Thompson
#193. I'm a hybrid-genre person, which a lot of people find confusing. I grew up listening to American country music and rock n' roll made between 1955 and 1959. The Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry were my first musical loves and are still what I am most moved by. Roy Orbison came a little bit later. #Quote by Teddy Thompson
Grew Up quotes by Ben Affleck

Grew Up quotes by Florence Aadland
#195. As I've stated before, there is no truth to the stories that Errol and Beverly spent two years of debauchery together. Their life was nothing like that. But it's easy to understand how stories of debauchery grew up around a man like Errol. Let me present an example. Once, while we were in New York, Errol and Beverly attended a party at a country estate. At the party were two other couples. They were all very good friends. During the course of the evening they went swimming. In the nude. Now to someone who wasn't there that party had all the marks of an orgy. But it wasn't like that a bit. Beverly later told me all about it. Errol, Beverly and his wealthy friends simply went swimming in the pool for a few minutes. And that was all there was to it. Nothing else happened. They weren't riotously drunk or mad with passion. It was an unconventional but casual swim. Afterward they got out, dressed and enjoyed some porkchops and applesauce together. #Quote by Florence Aadland
Grew Up quotes by Ezekiel Emanuel
#196. Our dad hugged us and kissed us so much that some friends and relatives complained that he was going to turn us into sissies or homosexuals. But my dad didn't care. Let them raise their kids in a reserved and reticent way. He grew up in Israel, and his boys were going to be hugged and kissed by their father and know they were loved. #Quote by Ezekiel Emanuel
Grew Up quotes by James Spithill

Grew Up quotes by Andrei Bely
#201. Adam Antonovich's father was a tubby tyrant with a triple chin and chinks where his eyes should have been. All his life he had amassed money. In old age he had exchanged it for space; his estates grew, grew and swelled.

Grew Up quotes by William Shakespeare
#202. I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid, on a dolphin's back,
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song;
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres,
To hear the sea-maid's music. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Grew Up quotes by Alice Sebold
#203. My little brother's greatest fear was that the one person who meant so much to him would go away. He loved Lindsey and Grandma Lynn and Samuel and Hal, but my father kept him stepping lightly, son gingerly monitoring father every morning and every evening as if, without such vigilance, he would lose him.
We stood- the dead child and the living- on either side of my father, both wanting the same thing. To have him to ourselves forver. To please us both was an impossibility.
'Please don't let Daddy die, Susie,' he whispered. 'I need him.'

When I left my brother, I walked out past the gazebo and under the lights hanging down like berries, and I saw the brick paths branching out as I advanced.
I walked until the bricks turned to flat stones and then to small, sharp rocks and then to nothing but churned earth for miles adn miles around me. I stood there. I had been in heaven long enough to know that something would be revealed. And as the light began to fade and the sky to turn a dark, sweet blue as it had on the night of my death, I saw something walking into view, so far away I could not at first make out if it was man or woman, child or adult. But as moonlight reached this figure I could make out a man and, frightened now, my breathing shallow, I raced just far enough to see. Was it my father? Was it what I had wanted all this time so deperately?
'Susie,' the man said as I approached and then stopped a few feet from where he stood. He rai #Quote by Alice Sebold

#204. The book grew out of the introduction I did for Brady's Gates of Janus. I knew that the writing in that introduction had a better than average chance of being read by people involved in Brady's life - parents of victims, police, Brady himself. #Quote by Peter Sotos
Grew Up quotes by Thomas Frank
#205. Under the administration of George W. Bush, you will recall, federal spending grew pretty significantly. At the same time, the number of people directly employed by the federal government shrank. One of the factors that explained the difference was contracting. #Quote by Thomas Frank
Grew Up quotes by John C. Bogle
#206. In 1980, the compensation of the average chief executive officer was forty-two times that of the average worker; by the year 2004, the ratio had soared to 280 times that of the average worker (down from an astonishing 531 times at the peak in 2000). Over the past quarter-century, CEO compensation measured in current dollars rose nearly sixteen times over , while the compensation of the average worker slightly more than doubled. Measured in real(1980) dollars, however, the compensation of the average worker rose just 0.3 percent per year, barely enough to maintain his or her standard of living. Yet CEO compensation rose at a rate of 8.5 percent annually, increasing by more than seven times in real terms during the period. The rationale was that these executives had "created wealth" for their shareholders. But were CEOs actually creating value commensurate with this huge increase in compenstion? Certainly the average CEO was not. In real terms, aggregate corporate profits grew at an annual rate of just 2.9 percent, compared to 3.1 percent for our nation's economy, as represented by the Gross Domestic Product. How that somewhat dispiriting lag can drive average CEO compensation to a cool 9.8 million in 2004 is one of the great anomalies of the age. #Quote by John C. Bogle

Grew Up quotes by Nicholas Evans
#209. The gist of it was that there were two types of men who absconded from their marriages: the naughty and the needy. The naughty absconder was a simple dick-driven creature who just couldn't help himself. However much he might love his family, it always came second to his main object in life, namely, chasing women. The needy absconder was basically insecure and forever trying to prove to himself how much everybody loved him. His family was, in effect, one big love machine that needed his constant control and attention. When his kids grew older and got lives of their own and didn't need him so much, he suddenly got scared and felt old and useless. So he ran off to look for a new love machine someplace else. #Quote by Nicholas Evans
Grew Up quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#210. In an ancient and dead language, any recognition of living nature attracts us. These are such sentences as were written while grass grew and water ran. It is no small recommendation when a book will stand the test of mere unobstructed sunshine and daylight. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Grew Up quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#211. The day I met her under that tree, it was as if I breathed a spore of her into my lungs. We kept coming back to each other. The distance between our bodies grew wider over the years as we tried to live separately. But that spore took root and grew. And no matter the distance or circumstance, Olivia is something that grows inside of me. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Grew Up quotes by Kate Morton
#212. Saffy ran her fingertips lightly down the sides of the silk skirt. The color really was exquisite. A lustrous almost-pink, like the underside of the wild mushrooms that grew by the mill, the sort of color a careless glance might mistake for cream, but which rewarded close attention. #Quote by Kate Morton
Grew Up quotes by Dorothy Gilman
#213. People misunderstood death, they died not of too little life but of too much life, that as the skin withered and the future grew short it was the past that took on flesh, until ultimately the sheer accumulation of experience and memory became too heavy to carry. #Quote by Dorothy Gilman
Grew Up quotes by Li-Young Lee
#214. I saw your eyes before I had eyes to see.
And I've lived longing
for your every look ever since.
The longing entered time as this body.
And the longing grew as this body wanes.
That longing will outlive this body

I loved you before I as born.
It makes no sense, I know.

Long before eternity, I caught a glimpse
of your neck and shoulders, your ankles and toes.
And I've been lonely for you from that instant. #Quote by Li-Young Lee
Grew Up quotes by Alice Hoffman
#215. But Sally didn't have the heart to fight back. She wore dark clothes and tried not to be noticed. She pretended she wasn't smart and never raised her hand in class. She disguised her own nature so well that after a while she grew uncertain of her own abilities. #Quote by Alice Hoffman

Grew Up quotes by Manmohan Singh
#217. The Indian economy grew at 5.5 percent, but if you look at the last 30 years - for example, 1960 to 1985 - the progress made by East Asian countries was phenomenal. In a single generation they had been able to transform the character of their economy. They were able to get rid of chronic poverty. #Quote by Manmohan Singh
Grew Up quotes by Alan Watts
#218. Your world is all these elements. Of light and sound, of taste, smell, and touch, woven together in many dimensions on the fabulous loom of your brain. Your brain; the most complicated thing in the world, which you yourself grew ... without even thinking about it. #Quote by Alan Watts
Grew Up quotes by Ernest Dowson
#219. Grey Nights
A while we wandered (thus it is I dream!) Through a long, sandy track of No Man's Land, Where only poppies grew among the sand, The which we, plucking, cast with scant esteem, And ever sadlier, into the sad stream, Which followed us, as we went, hand in hand, Under the estranged stars, a road unplanned, Seeing all things in the shadow of a dream.
And ever sadlier, as the stars expired, We found the poppies rarer, till thine eyes Grown all my light, to light me were too tired, And at their darkening, that no surmise Might haunt me of the lost days we desired, After them all I flung those memories! #Quote by Ernest Dowson
Grew Up quotes by Steven Erikson
#220. From faith,' replied Emral Lanear, 'do we not seek guidance?'
'Guidance, or the organized assembly and reification of all the prejudices you collectively hold dear?'
'You would not speak to us!'
'I grew to fear the power of words – their power, and their powerlessness. No matter how profound or perceptive, no matter how deafening their truth, they are helpless to defend themselves. I could have given you a list. I could have stated, in the simplest terms, that this is how I want you to behave, and this must be the nature of your belief, and your service, and your sacrifice. But how long, I wonder, before that list twisted in interpretation? How long before deviation yielded condemnation, torture, death?' She slowly leaned forward. 'How long, before my simple rules to a proper life become a call to war? To the slaughter of unbelievers? How long, Emral Lanear, before you begin killing in my name?'
'Then what do you want of us?' Lanear demanded.
'You could have stopped thinking like children who need to be told what's right and what's wrong. You damned well know what's right and what's wrong. It's pretty simple, really. It's all about harm. It's about hurting, and not just physical, either. You want a statement for your faith in me? You wish me to offer you the words you claim to need, the rules by which you are to live your lives? Very well, but I should warn you, every deity worthy of worship will offer you the same prescription. Here it is, then. #Quote by Steven Erikson
Grew Up quotes by Charles Frazier
#221. Bleak as the scene was, though, there was growing joy in Inman's heart. He was nearing home; he could feel it in the touch of thin air on skin, in his longing to see the lead of hearth smoke from the houses of people he had known all his life. People he would not be called upon to hate or fear. He rose and took a wide stance on the rock and stood and pinched down his eyes to sharpen the view across the vast propect to one far mountain. It stood apart from the sky only as the stroke of a poorly inked pen, a line thin and quick and gestural. But the shape slowly grew plain and unmistakable. It was to Cold Mountain he looked. He had achieved a vista of what for him was homeland. #Quote by Charles Frazier
Grew Up quotes by Mark Twain
#222. When we set about accounting for a Napoleon or a Shakespeare or a Raphael or a Wagner or an Edison or other extraordinary person, we understand that the measure of his talent will not explain the whole result, nor even the largest part of it; no, it is the atmosphere in which the talent was cradled that explains; it is the training it received while it grew, the nurture it got from reading, study, example, the encouragement it gathered from self-recognition and recognition from the outside at each stage of its development: when we know all these details, then we know why the man was ready when his opportunity came. #Quote by Mark Twain

Grew Up quotes by Kiersten White
#224. Reth narrowed his eyes and looked from me to the gate and back again.
"Don't even think about it," I said, suddenly scared. "If you so much as take a step to drag me through, I will drain your soul and send it through the gate in the stars you're so scared of. And you know you can't fight me right now."
His lips jutted out petulantly, then he sighed. "I really will miss you, my love. If nothing else you were always entertaining."
I smiled. "I think I might miss you, too. So few things left in this world to terrorize me and look pretty while doing it. Now get out of here and enjoy your eternity." He glanced calculatingly at the gate once again, and I raised my hand in warning. "I can drain faster than you can run."
He looked torn, then leaned forward and pressed his smooth lips against mine in a whisper of a kiss. I staggered back, putting my fingers to my lips and still feeling his heat there.
"Perhaps if I had done that earlier you would be coming with me now." He smiled at me, that enigmatic faerie smile that I realized with a pang I really would miss, then turned and walked, stooped and unsteady, through the gate.
"Good-bye, Reth," I whispered, letting the wind carry my words through the gate and wondering if he heard them on the other side. Something tight around my heart released as he grew taller and brighter, healed, his features smoothing until they were so much less human than they had ever been. He turned his head ever so briefly in my #Quote by Kiersten White

Grew Up quotes by James Hain Friswell
#227. I shook with cold and fear, without being able to answer. After a lapse of some moments, I was again called. I made an effort to speak, and then felt the bandage which wrapped me from head to foot. It was my shroud. At last, I managed feebly to articulate, 'Who calls?'

'Tis I' said a voice.

'Who art thou?'

'I! I! I!' was the answer; and the voice grew weaker, as if it was lost in the distance; or as if it was but the icy rustle of the trees.

A third time my name sounded on my ears; but now it seemed to run from tree to tree, as if it whistled in each dead branch; so that the entire cemetery repeated it with a dull sound. Then I heard a noise of wings, as if my name, pronounced in the silence, had suddenly awakened a troop of nightbirds. My hands, as if by some mysterious power, sought my face. In silence I undid the shroud which bound me, and tried to see. It seemed as if I had awakened from a long sleep. I was cold.

I then recalled the dread fear which oppressed me, and the mournful images by which I was surrounded. The trees had no longer any leaves upon them, and seemed to stretch forth their bare branches like huge spectres! A single ray of moonlight which shone forth, showed me a long row of tombs, forming an horizon around me, and seeming like the steps which might lead to Heaven. All the vague voices of the night, which seemed to preside at my awakening, were full of terror. ("The Dead Man's Story") #Quote by James Hain Friswell

Grew Up quotes by Leonid Andreyev
#229. Look at us, Lazarus, and share our joy. Is there anything stronger than love?"

And Lazarus looked. And for the rest of their life they kept on loving each other, but their passion grew gloomy and joyless, like those funeral cypresses whose roots feed on the decay of the graves and whose black summits in a still evening hour seek in vain to reach the sky. Thrown by the unknown forces of life into each other's embraces, they mingled tears with kisses, voluptuous pleasures with pain, and they felt themselves doubly slaves, obedient slaves to life, and patient servants of the silent Nothingness. Ever united, ever severed, they blazed like sparks and like sparks lost themselves in the boundless Dark. #Quote by Leonid Andreyev
Grew Up quotes by Catherine Anderson
#230. Come here, little one."
"I want to go back."
He hoped she stood there arguing for a time. "Obey your husband."
She wrinkled her nose. "It's broad daylight."
"Keemah, come."
Growing tired of just looking when he could be touching, Hunter cocked his head and let her see him leering. He was awarded a fetching glimpse of slender, creamy thighs and honey gold. She gasped and dropped to her knees as if someone had dealt a blow to the backs of her legs.
Tucking her skirt under her knees, she cried, "Have you no shame?"
His answer was a slow grin. Seizing her wrist, he drew her toward him. "There is no shame. You are my woman."
Pulled off balance, she fell across his chest. Squirming, but halfheartedly, she said, "There's a time and a place for everything, and this isn't it."
"No?" He ran a hand under her blouse. "I say it is a very good time."
She jerked when his fingers scaled her ribs. "That tickles."
Without warning he rolled with her, coming out on top. He kissed her lightly on the lips while he moved his hand from her ribs to her breast. The small mound of warm flesh fit perfectly in his hand, the crest springing taut against his palm. Scarlet flamed on her cheeks. Unable to resist, Hunter lifted her blouse and moved off her to look, one thigh slanted across both of hers to keep her still. He had guessed right; when she was shy, she grew pink all over.
"Hunter!" She tried to shove the leather down. "Someone might come! #Quote by Catherine Anderson

#233. A woman, nothing existed but the domestic sphere and those tiny flowers etched on the pages of my art book. For a woman to aspire to be a lawyer - well, possibly, the world would end. But an acorn grew into an oak tree, didn't it? #Quote by Sue Monk Kidd
Grew Up quotes by Georges Bataille
#234. To put it more precisely, since language is by definition the expression of civilised man, violence is silent. Civilisation and language grew as though violence was something outside. But silence cannot do away with things that language cannot state. Violence is as stubbornly there just as much as death, and if language cheats to conceal universal annihilation, the placid work of time, language alone suffers, language is the poorer, not time and not violence. #Quote by Georges Bataille
Grew Up quotes by Rick Riordan
#235. She sprang from Zeus's forehead and, right in front of their eyes, grew until she was a fully formed adult goddess, dressed in gray robes and battle armor, wearing a bronze helmet and holding a spear and shield. I'm not sure where she got the outfit. Maybe Athena magically created it, or maybe Zeus ate clothing and weaponry for snacks. At any rate, the goddess made quite an entrance. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Grew Up quotes by Julie Anne Peters

Grew Up quotes by Kenneth Minogue
#238. The story of liberalism, as liberals tell it, is rather like the legend of St. George and the dragon. After many centuries of hopelessness and superstition, St. George, in the guise of Rationality, appeared in the world somewhere about the sixteenth century. The first dragons upon whom he turned his lance were those of despotic kingship and religious intolerance. These battles won, he rested for a time, until such questions as slavery, or prison conditions, or the state of the poor, began to command his attention. During the nineteenth century, his lance was never still, prodding this way and that against the inert scaliness of privilege, vested interest, or patrician insolence. But, unlike St. George, he did not know when to retire. The more he succeeded, the more he became bewitched with the thought of a world free of dragons, and the less capable he became of ever returning to private life. He needed his dragons. He could only live by fighting for causes - the people, the poor, the exploited, the colonially oppressed, the underprivileged and the underdeveloped. As an ageing warrior, he grew breathless in his pursuit of smaller and smaller dragons - for the big dragons were now harder to come by. #Quote by Kenneth Minogue
Grew Up quotes by Neil LaBute
#239. I will say that the idea of a woman being deceptive came from that original discussion with critics and reporters about if woman could do that kind of thing. Evelyn, herself, grew out of the discussions about how capable women are of deceit and lying and manipulation. #Quote by Neil LaBute
Grew Up quotes by Henry Miller
#240. In the moment all is dear to me, dear that in this logic there is no redemption, the city itself being the highest form of madness and each and every part, organic or inorganic, an expression of this same madness. I feel absurdly and humbly great, not as megalomaniac, but as human spore, as the dead sponge of life swollen to saturation. I no longer look into the eyes of the woman I hold in my arms but I swim through, head and arms and legs, and I see that behind the sockets of the eyes there is a region unexplored, the world of futurity, and here there is no logic whatever, just the still germination of events unbroken by night and day, by yesterday and tomorrow. The eye, accustomed to concentration on points in space, now concentrates on points in time; the eye sees forward and backward at will. The eye which was the I of the self no longer exists; this selfless eye neither reveals nor illuminates. It travels along the line of the horizon, a ceaseless, uninformed voyager. Trying to retain the lost body I grew in logic as the city, a point digit in the anatomy of perfection. I grew beyond my own death, spiritually bright and hard. I was divided into endless yesterdays, endless tomorrows, resting only on the cusp of the event, a wall with many windows, but the house gone. I must shatter the walls and windows, the last shell of the lost body, if I am to rejoin the present. That is why I no longer look into the eyes or through the eyes, but by the legerdemain of will swim throug #Quote by Henry Miller
