#4. Selena was born in a generation that had grown up on the edge. She'd grown up knowing that the little child starlet who voiced Anne-Marie on 'All Dogs Go to Heaven', Judith Barsi, had been murdered and set on fire by her own father.

Growing Up quotes by Johnny Bench
#8. I spent every bit of my money to try and get a Mickey Mantle card, and I don't have one. Growing up in Oklahoma, Mickey Mantle was my idol. And here I am, and I'd go pick cotton to have enough money, and I'd buy all of these packs, and I'd chew all of the gum, and I'd never find a Mickey Mantle card. #Quote by Johnny Bench
Growing Up quotes by Parker Peevyhouse
#9. I kicked off my shoes and moved in knee-deep. The shock of cold water stole my breath. Cole was dark from the sun, his yellow hair like parched grass. He cocked his head to the side like my grandpop used to do; I swear it's a gesture taught to all farm boys who plan on growing up to make trouble. I fought to stand my ground against the current pushing at the backs of my legs.

"Can't you swim?" Cole had asked.

"I learned in this creek. They threw me in and I declined the opportunity to drown. #Quote by Parker Peevyhouse
Growing Up quotes by Hope Solo
#10. With each year that's gone by, and as I grow up and get older, I've become more mature, of course, but you have a sense of who you are, and you find confidence in that. #Quote by Hope Solo
Growing Up quotes by Tracee Ellis Ross
#11. I was very shy growing up. My shyness manifested as a big personality, as opposed to the wallflower personality. It's been a journey getting comfortable in my skin.

Growing Up quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#16. At fifteen, I have taken up the burdens of a woman, and have come to feel I am one. Furthermore, I am glad of it. For I now no longer have the time to fall into such sins as I committed as a girl, when hours that were my own to spend spread before me like a gift. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks

Growing Up quotes by Stewart O'Nan
#19. I'm sorry you don't like coming back here, her mother often said, to cap whatever petty dust-up they'd had. How could Emily explain: it wasn't her mother or Kersey she'd disowned, but her earlier self, that strange, ungrateful girl who strove to be first at everything and threw tantrums when she failed. #Quote by Stewart O'Nan
Growing Up quotes by Robert M. Pirsig
#20. Dad?"

Growing Up quotes by Isao Takahata
#24. Like it or not, a caterpillar must first live as a chrysalis before becoming a butterfly. Maybe I remember those days because I am going through a chrysalis stage. #Quote by Isao Takahata
Growing Up quotes by Rob Zombie
#25. I didn't grow up in a creative environment. It was very boring town, boring everything. You go to school and you basically hate all the other kids because you don't understand them or what it's all about. At the same time I'm happy for that because I became very withdrawn and when you become withdrawn you develop your own bizarre-o personality. #Quote by Rob Zombie
Growing Up quotes by Iman
#26. I suffer from low self-esteem. I had horrible self-esteem growing up. You really have to save yourself because the critic within you will eat you up. It's not the outside world - it's your interior life, that critic within you, that you have to silence. #Quote by Iman
Growing Up quotes by Roger Morris
#27. Growing up in the Midwest, I was very close to my maternal grandmother, who, as a young widow running a small business in 1920s Kansas City, had known firsthand the old Pendergast regime and its classic combine of politics and organized crime. #Quote by Roger Morris
Growing Up quotes by Gina Carano
#28. 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
Growing Up quotes by Deborah Mailman
#29. I was big as a kid, very overweight. That caused a lot of insecurities for me growing up, and on top of that, I didn't like the idea of big crowds. I found it quite frightening. I enjoy the company of people who I know, and I'm probably still like that today. #Quote by Deborah Mailman
Growing Up quotes by Ruby Rose
#30. Fashion is such a weird thing. Growing up, I just made do with whatever I had access to - a lot of hand-me-downs and thrift store shopping. #Quote by Ruby Rose
Growing Up quotes by Kyrsten Sinema
#31. 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.

We lived in an abandoned gas station for two years until we were able to get back on our feet. #Quote by Kyrsten Sinema
Growing Up quotes by Newton Lee

Growing Up quotes by Natasha Trethewey
#36. Even though I am the daughter of a poet, and my stepmother is also a poet, growing up, I didn't think I could understand poetry; I didn't think that it had any relevance to my life, the feelings that I endured on a day-to-day basis, until I was introduced to the right poem. #Quote by Natasha Trethewey
Growing Up quotes by Ang Lee
#37. Even the favorite reviews, the audience response is the movie is too slow, deliberately slow. But for the Chinese audience, the biggest complaint is it happens too quick. I think the historical background that build into our genes is different. American people has never been occupied. The deep sadness and sentimentality, the cultural background that relates to melodrama that we relate to and grow up with, the propaganda, I didn't imagine the difference is so big. It's a very interesting cultural phenomenon. #Quote by Ang Lee
Growing Up quotes by Jessica Mitford
#38. Growing up in the English countryside seemed an interminable process. Freezing winter gave way to frosty spring, which in turn merged into chilly summer-but nothing ever, ever happened. #Quote by Jessica Mitford
Growing Up quotes by Jello Biafra
#39. 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
Growing Up quotes by Heather Vogel Frederick
#40. Change is the nature of life, Cassidy. Some of it's good, like new babies being born and children growing up and leaving home and all the new adventures that both of those things bring. And sometimes change is more difficult - like when your dad died. But it's nothing to fear. Good or bad, when we rise up to meet it, change can make us stronger. It's what moved us farther along down the road ahead. #Quote by Heather Vogel Frederick
Growing Up quotes by Jack Canfield
#41. Keep in mind that part of growing up is dealing with difficult issues, and the benefits can be great if you have the courage to ask for help. Human beings are not designed to go through life alone. No one has to bear the burden of tough times all by themselves. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Growing Up quotes by Raekwon
#42. In the early 2000s, I was going through a lot. I didn't have my head screwed on right. Where I was at as a man, I was still growing up. #Quote by Raekwon
Growing Up quotes by Pericles
#43. Trees, though they are cut and loped, grow up again quickly, but if men are destroyed, it is not easy to get them again. #Quote by Pericles
Growing Up quotes by Lev Grossman
#44. Growing up in the '70s and '80s, science fiction and especially fantasy had such a stigma attached to them. I felt so punished and exiled for being devoted to these things. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Growing Up quotes by Richard Livingstone
#45. There is no virtue in being uncritical; nor is it a habit to which the young are given. But criticism is only the burying beetle that gets rid of what is dead, and, since the world lives by creative and constructive forces, and not by negation and destruction, it is better to grow up in the company of prophets than of critics. #Quote by Richard Livingstone
Growing Up quotes by Jason Flemyng
#46. A lot of pubs in London are now faceless, expensive yuppy bars. Not like when I was growing up. The pub used to be, and should be, the pillar of community. #Quote by Jason Flemyng
Growing Up quotes by Jimmy Wales
#47. When I was growing up in Huntsville, Alabama, this is where the space and rocket center was. This is where all of the German rocket scientists came after war and started designing rockets for NASA, for the moon landing and all that. #Quote by Jimmy Wales
Growing Up quotes by Andre Leon Talley
#48. When I was a young boy, growing up in Durham, North Carolina, the women in my family were truly passionate about their clothes; nothing was more beautiful to me than women dressing with the utmost, meticulous attention to accessories, shoes, handbags, hats, coats, dresses and gloves to attend Sunday church services. #Quote by Andre Leon Talley
Growing Up quotes by Avril Lavigne
#49. 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
Growing Up quotes by Megan Amram
#50. I feel like plenty of people have normal-seeming families that, as they're growing up, feel awful. I'd rather have one that looks weird from the outside but felt really normal. #Quote by Megan Amram

Growing Up quotes by John King
#54. Little hooligans showing off is okay when they do it away from us, but we don't need that kind of behaviour. You have to have standards. Would have done the same when I was their age, but I'm not. Now is now. There's no room for nostalgia. #Quote by John King
Growing Up quotes by Danny Barker
#55. One of my pleasantest memories as a kid growing up in New Orleans was how a bunch of us kids, playing, would suddenly hear sounds. It was like a phenomenon, like the Aurora Borealis
maybe. The sounds of men playing would be so clear, but we wouldn't be sure where they were coming from. So we'd start trotting, start running
'It's this way! It's this way!'
And sometimes, after running for a while, you'd find you'd be nowhere near that music. But that music could come on you any time like that. The city was full of the sounds of music. #Quote by Danny Barker
Growing Up quotes by Jamie Wyeth
#56. Growing up in Chadds Ford, Pa., I shuttled between studio space in my parents' house and my grandfather's studio just up the hill. It was a solitary childhood, but I loved it. #Quote by Jamie Wyeth
Growing Up quotes by Aaliyah
#57. When you get into this business you have to grow up quickly. But I wouldn't say I've lost any of my childhood, I've always been a mature child. My Mom says I've been like that since I was little kid. I make time for my friends and I make time for things that other kids do. This is a business and I knew what I was getting into. I make time for being a kid, but I also know when to put on my business hat and go for the business. #Quote by Aaliyah
Growing Up quotes by Dakota Johnson
#58. The idea of being at home and picking up kids from school and cooking dinner and then the husband comes home - there's something that seems really nice to me 'cause I never had that growing up. And it seems so enticing. But in my mind, I'm like, 'Well, I'll just play that in a movie and go about my own life, bizarre as it is.' #Quote by Dakota Johnson
Growing Up quotes by Debi Mazar
#59. I used to watch my grandmother make fancy, Julia Child-style beef bourguignon. And growing up in New York City, I was exposed to many cultures. I experimented with Puerto Rican and Jamaican food. #Quote by Debi Mazar
Growing Up quotes by Bijou Hunter
#60. They've clearly done their research on how to sell homeschooling. I don't disagree with them, though. They're weird kids, and public school will try to make them normal. I know since I was weird too. Despite the best efforts of my teachers, I remained weird yet turned out better than anyone else I knew growing up. #Quote by Bijou Hunter
Growing Up quotes by Johnny Marr
#61. I had a feeling about what I wanted to say, and I wasn't really qualified to discuss real things out of America because I didn't grow up there. #Quote by Johnny Marr
Growing Up quotes by Victor Ortiz
#62. When you're growing up, it's always nice to have someone you can relate and look up to.

Growing Up quotes by Grace Llewellyn
#65. When you get down to it, unschooling is really just a fancy term for 'life' or 'growing up uninstitutionalized'. #Quote by Grace Llewellyn
Growing Up quotes by Moby
#66. When I was growing up, I fetishised New York City. It was the land of Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, it was where Leonard Cohen wrote 'Chelsea Hotel', it was CBGBs and all the punk rock clubs. Artists and musicians lived there, and it was cheap and dangerous. #Quote by Moby
Growing Up quotes by David Crane
#67. Looking back, video game design seems a natural fit, although there was no such thing when I was growing up. I built a Tic-Tac-Toe playing machine in my teens which went up in smoke on the night it was scheduled to go to a science fair. #Quote by David Crane
Growing Up quotes by Gillian Zinser
#68. I was more comfortable with guys growing up, but now I find myself more comfortable in my own skin and open to people, regardless of their gender or popularity or any other label, as a result. #Quote by Gillian Zinser
Growing Up quotes by Joey Ramone
#69. When I was a kid growing up in the '60s, music was an outlet for enlightenment, frustration, rebellion. It was more about individualism. Today it's just like a big business. #Quote by Joey Ramone
Growing Up quotes by Suzy Amis
#70. Growing up in Oklahoma the way I did, and being raised the way I was raised by my parents, gave me such a strong foundation to go out into the world and fly, so to speak, the way I was able to do. #Quote by Suzy Amis

Growing Up quotes by Tonya Mitchell
#72. I hope my music inspires people and I want to be a good role model for everybody, not just the girls but for the guys too. I want to show everybody that I didn't grow up in the spotlight like the Mickey Mouse Club to make it. That is important for kids to know. #Quote by Tonya Mitchell
Growing Up quotes by Ron Rash
#73. She realized that being starved for words was the same as being starved for food, because both left a hollow place inside you, a place you needed filled to make it through another day. Rachel remembered how growing up she'd thought living on a farm with just a father was as lonely as you could be. (130) #Quote by Ron Rash
Growing Up quotes by Troy Andrews
#74. As I was a kid, I had a bunch of musicians, they always told me that I should listen to all styles of music and try to play all styles and be authentic at it, if I can, because you never know who's gonna call you. This was coming from fellow horn players who would get the call to play with different types of people. Since I was a kid, that was just something I was always interested in. #Quote by Troy Andrews
Growing Up quotes by Jaimie Alexander
#75. Chris Farley, I was a huge fan of his growing up. I would love to do something kind of slapstick and funny, maybe where I could change my look even a little bit. #Quote by Jaimie Alexander

Growing Up quotes by Amy Carmichael
#78. If our children were to grow up truthful they much be taught by those who had a regard for truth; and not just a casual regard, a delicate regard. On this point we were adamant. #Quote by Amy Carmichael
Growing Up quotes by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
#79. One must not consider a language as a product dead, and formed but once; it is an animate being, and ever creative. Human thought elaborates itself with the progress of intelligence; and of this thought language is a manifestation. An idiom cannot therefore remain stationary; it walks, it develops, it grows up, it fortifies itself, it becomes old, and it reaches decrepitude. #Quote by Wilhelm Von Humboldt
Growing Up quotes by Moshe Kasher
#80. In keeping with the theme of "I got my hands on," my brother and I would listen to The Diceman Cometh. That was the dirtiest thing we'd ever heard, and we could listen to that at full volume without fear of penalty, because my mom couldn't hear that either. I wasn't a huge comedy fan growing up, but I definitely listened to Andrew Dice Clay a lot. #Quote by Moshe Kasher
Growing Up quotes by Kenji Yoshino
#81. Perhaps none of us assumes romantic love to be a birthright. Yet the confidence it will come surely admits of degrees. Growing up, I assumed I was the word that rhymed with none other-- like "silver" or "orange," glistering bright, but sonnet foiling, and always solitary traveling. Somewhere love happened, plausible as a catch of distant conversation. But not in the self's way. #Quote by Kenji Yoshino
Growing Up quotes by Jennifer Garner
#82. My parents came from a poor background and worked their way up because of education. They saw it as a way to succeed. So they cared about me getting straight A grades when I was growing up. #Quote by Jennifer Garner
Growing Up quotes by Stacy Keibler
#83. I wasn't a wrestling fan growing up; I knew who Hulk Hogan was and stuff but I didn't watch it. I started watching wrestling about three years before I got involved with WCW. #Quote by Stacy Keibler
Growing Up quotes by Tia Mowry
#84. Growing up, dinner was when we would sit down, the whole family, and we would talk about our days and just create memories with one another. Now some of my favorite memories are eating and making food with my son. #Quote by Tia Mowry
Growing Up quotes by Adrianne Palicki
#85. I was the kid growing up who would play with G.I. Joes in a pink dress and then run off to play with my Barbies. It doesn't mean that I'm less girly, it just means that I have this other side of me. It's kinda cool to be a little bit of both, I think. #Quote by Adrianne Palicki
Growing Up quotes by Alex Hirsch
#86. I feel like the best kids shows aren't just for kids. The best kids shows have something in it for everyone. As you grow up, you're increasingly proud to be a fan of the show, rather than getting to an age where you suddenly become embarrassed that you ever liked it because it's only for seven-year-olds. #Quote by Alex Hirsch
Growing Up quotes by Kendall Jenner
#87. I've always been a huge family person. Growing up with such a huge family, it was just amazing, so coming home to that is always awesome and ... it makes me happy. #Quote by Kendall Jenner
Growing Up quotes by Daphne Oz
#88. Growing up in my family, it wasn't important that we always be the best; it was important that we were going to try to be our best and give it our all. #Quote by Daphne Oz
Growing Up quotes by Adam Savage
#89. Growing up in New York, I was sort of shocked when I realized that my children are Californians. They are 14 years old, and I explain to them frequently that they will never realize the glory of a snow day. You wake up and the world says, 'Oops, it's too much fun to go to school, you've got to stay home and deal with the snow!' #Quote by Adam Savage
Growing Up quotes by Katherine Schwarzenegger
#90. When I was younger, I played sports and went to camp. As I got older, my parents began to instill in us the importance of giving back to the community, especially those places around the world that are less fortunate than my very privileged life growing up in Los Angeles. #Quote by Katherine Schwarzenegger
Growing Up quotes by Veronica Blade
#91. I'm going to go throw up now, because ive turned into my dad. If vomiting doesn't work, I'll see if I can get an exorcism. #Quote by Veronica Blade
Growing Up quotes by Arabella Weir
#92. As I was growing up, it was made clear that the fat me wasn't welcome, that a thin person was expected and awaited, and impatiently so. #Quote by Arabella Weir
Growing Up quotes by Sara Raasch
#93. You've always been /everything/ to me. I didn't know how to handle how much I needed you growing up---snow, I still don't, all right? #Quote by Sara Raasch
Growing Up quotes by Beverly Lewis
#94. Growing up around Amish farmland, I enjoyed the opportunity to witness firsthand their love of family, of the domestic arts - sewing, quilting, cooking, baking - as well as seeing them live out their tradition of faith in such a unique way. #Quote by Beverly Lewis
Growing Up quotes by Maureen Daly
#95. Growing up crowds your mind with new thoughts and new feelings so that you forget how you used to think and feel. #Quote by Maureen Daly
Growing Up quotes by Don Miguel Ruiz
#96. I love and respect all religions and philosophies. I see how they get formed, how they grow up, and how powerful they are. But for me to believe in a specific god - no. Because what I believe is that the infinite, the absolute, is a living being and the only one living being that really exists. #Quote by Don Miguel Ruiz
Growing Up quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#97. People in places many of us never heard of, whose names we can't pronounce or even spell, are speaking up for themselves. They speak in languages we once classified as exotic but whose mastery is now essential for our diplomats and businessmen. But what they say is very much the same the world over. They want a decent standard of living. They want human dignity and a voice in their own futures. They want their children to grow up strong and healthy and free. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Growing Up quotes by Neil Gaiman
#98. Yes. Growing up is highly overrated. Just be an author. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Growing Up quotes by Greg Brenneman
#99. 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
Growing Up quotes by Sylvia Earle
#100. I am not in any hurry to grow up. #Quote by Sylvia Earle
Growing Up quotes by Katie McGarry
#101. Because growing up means making tough choices, and doing the right thing doesn't necessarily mean doing the thing that feels good. #Quote by Katie McGarry
Growing Up quotes by Orlando Bloom
#102. I had plenty of vices growing up. #Quote by Orlando Bloom
Growing Up quotes by Baz Luhrmann
#103. When I was growing up you would see big American films that really mythologised their landscape, that really showed the vastness and the drama of their country. #Quote by Baz Luhrmann
Growing Up quotes by Rob McClure
#104. My initial introduction to him was - this is a funny story ... My Aunt Marian, my entire life growing up, told me that I looked like Charlie Chaplin. That didn't really resonate with me when I was younger - I hadn't seen a lot of his films. #Quote by Rob McClure
Growing Up quotes by Pamela Druckerman
#105. To grow up without risk is to risk not growing up. #Quote by Pamela Druckerman

#106. Growing up, I was a little hippie kid. I went to some good concerts ... Amnesty International with Bob Dylan and Tracy Chapman ...

It was Pearl Jam opening for Nirvana opening for Red Hot Chili Peppers. #Quote by Summer Sanders

Growing Up quotes by April Rose
#110. I think rejection is a huge part of the business and there's so many cute girls that grow up with kind of being adored or people kind of bending over backwards for them. I see a lot of girls who aren't used to rejection because of that, and now all of a sudden they drop out of the business. #Quote by April Rose
Growing Up quotes by Louie Bellson
#111. My father owned a music store when I was growing up in Rock Falls, Illinois. He could play all the instruments, which you had to do when you owned a music store back then. One day, when I was three years old, he took me to a parade. When the drums passed by, I got so excited I told him wanted to learn to play them. #Quote by Louie Bellson
Growing Up quotes by Ian Thorpe
#112. This Is Me": "For the record, I am not gay and all my sexual experiences have been straight. I'm attracted to women, I love children and aspire to have a family one day ... I know what it's like to grow up and be told what your sexuality is, then realising that it's not the full reality. I was accused of being gay before I knew who I was. #Quote by Ian Thorpe
Growing Up quotes by Dree Hemingway
#113. My whole thing was, as much as I was inspired by what my parents do, and growing up on film sets, watching that made me really want to do that. I am my own person, and I think that the only thing with the Hemingway name is that it has gotten me in the door. #Quote by Dree Hemingway
Growing Up quotes by Rachel Bloom
#114. All I listened to until age 18 growing up was musical theater. I liked the escapism of it. #Quote by Rachel Bloom
Growing Up quotes by John Irving
#115. For a terrible time of life a teen-ager deceives himself; he believes he can trick the world. He believes he is invulnerable. An adolescent who is an orphan at this phase is in danger of never growing up. #Quote by John Irving
Growing Up quotes by Jenny Han
#116. Growing up really is bittersweet. #Quote by Jenny Han
Growing Up quotes by Thomas Hardy
#117. If he could only prevent himself growing up! He did not want to be a man. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Growing Up quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#118. He wanted to name the horse we're taking with us 'Beach Bunny,' after some stuffed rabbit he had growing up, and I said it was a stupid name for a horse. Then he claimed, if it was his horse, he could name it anything he wanted, and I said he should ride The Madam because she's the easiest to handle, and - "

"You offended his pride and he stalked away in a huff," Yelena finished.

"Yup. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Growing Up quotes by Michael Caine
#119. Books were my window on the world. Growing up at the Elephant and Castle, which was very rough, my paradise was the library. #Quote by Michael Caine
Growing Up quotes by Katherine Center
#120. I'm always amazed at how fast siblings can warp-speed into a state of rage. It's like they keep everything they were ever angry about growing up shoved into an overstuffed emotional closet, and at moments like these, it takes about two seconds to swing the door open and start an avalanche. #Quote by Katherine Center
Growing Up quotes by John Lennon
#121. I wanted to give five solid years of being there all the time (with Sean). I hadn't seen my first son Julian grow up, and now there's a 17-year-old man on the phone talking about motorbikes. No matter what artistic gains I get, or gold records, if I can't make a success out of my relationship with the people I love, then everything else is bullsh*t. #Quote by John Lennon
Growing Up quotes by Peter Capaldi
#122. I don't remember 'Doctor Who' not being part of my life, and it became a part of growing up, along with The Beatles, National Health spectacles, and fog. And it runs deep. It's in my DNA. #Quote by Peter Capaldi
Growing Up quotes by Stevie Wonder
#123. When I grow up I wanna be like Omar #Quote by Stevie Wonder
Growing Up quotes by Haruki Murakami
#124. Your "scared" and my "scared" are two different things.'
'What's that supposed to mean?' she asked.
'As you get older, you don't recover from things so easy.'
'As you get older, you also get tired?'
'Yeah,' I said, 'you get tired. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Growing Up quotes by Jodie Sweetin
#125. Growing up in the business you have to grow up very fast - you do have a different type of childhood, that has its benefits and it has its drawbacks. #Quote by Jodie Sweetin
Growing Up quotes by Dikembe Mutombo
#126. I was not very strong growing up, and my uncle used to look at me, like, 'This kid is not growing up, he is growing tall but he can be broken like a banana.' The banana in Congo is called 'Dikembe.' So my uncle start calling me, 'Dikembe, Dikembe, look at you Dikembe, you cannot even stand up.' It took a long time for me to walk. #Quote by Dikembe Mutombo
Growing Up quotes by Aubrey Plaza
#127. Well, I was obsessed with Judy Garland growing up. Like, obsessed. #Quote by Aubrey Plaza
Growing Up quotes by Daniel Boulud
#128. As a child growing up, it's going to be what you're going to remember most. What you liked or not liked then is going to define who you are at the table! #Quote by Daniel Boulud
Growing Up quotes by Nicholas Hoult
#129. I'm not scared of growing up, but it just happens, doesn't it? #Quote by Nicholas Hoult
Growing Up quotes by Olivia Culpo
#130. I'd like to start off by saying that every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you'll learn from it. That's just life. But something I've done I've regretted is probably picking on my siblings growing up, because you appreciate them so much more as you grow older. #Quote by Olivia Culpo
Growing Up quotes by Alan Jackson
#131. Growing up in Georgia, I used to think people up north or out west were so different. They're really not. They're just regular people who live in small towns. They grow up and try to raise families and have a job and go to church and play softball. It's that way everywhere. #Quote by Alan Jackson
Growing Up quotes by William Goldman
#132. It was all part of growing up. You got these little quick passions, you blinked, and they were gone. You forgave faults, found perfection, fell madly; then the next day the sun came up and it was over. Chalk it up to experience, old girl, and get on with the morning. Buttercup stood, made her bed, changed her clothes, combed her hair, smiled, and burst out again in a fit of weeping. Because there was a limit to just how much you could lie to yourself. #Quote by William Goldman
Growing Up quotes by Leigh Lezark
#133. I always had influences musically with punk, and then growing up, I dyed my hair every color. I did the dip-dye blue, before anybody was dip-dyeing their hair. And streaks of pinks and purples and whatnot. #Quote by Leigh Lezark
Growing Up quotes by Karl Wiggins
#134. We look at the way some kids behave and instantly blame the parents, and more often than not we're correct. The school bully is often a sign of poor parenting. That's the immediate cause, but if we search for the root cause we have to dig much deeper than that. What on earth in that kid's head makes it seem okay to bully people? Why are the parents doing such a poor job of bringing up their children? Probably because they didn't have very effective role models themselves when they were growing up. It could go back generations #Quote by Karl Wiggins
Growing Up quotes by E.L. Konigsburg
#135. ...I didn't run away to come home the same. -Claudia #Quote by E.L. Konigsburg
Growing Up quotes by Jennifer Todd
#136. It's a real gift to work with my sister. We obviously have such a shorthand communicating with each other that it makes the process easier. And from growing up together and watching so many films together, we ended up with pretty similar taste. #Quote by Jennifer Todd
Growing Up quotes by Arundhati Roy
#137. They would grow up grappling with ways of living with what happened. They would try to tell themselves that in terms of geological time it was an insignificant event. Just a blink of the Earth Woman's eye. That Worse Things had happened. That Worse Things kept happening. But they would find no comfort in the thought. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Growing Up quotes by Dan Shechtman
#138. When my grandchildren are older and my great-grandchildren start growing up, first of all, I want them to be in Israel. I don't want them to leave the country because they have no choice. #Quote by Dan Shechtman
Growing Up quotes by Marshawn Lynch
#139. Growing up in Oakland, we did things like white t-shirt, blue jeans and Nikes. That was my get down, how I was going to rock. And if you look at me right now, I'm pretty much black tee, blue jeans and some sneakers. #Quote by Marshawn Lynch
Growing Up quotes by John Cleese
#140. For me, the great problem growing up in England was that I had a very narrow concept of what God can be, and it was damn close to an old man with a beard. #Quote by John Cleese
Growing Up quotes by Shawn Marion
#141. The biggest thing is having a son. I got attached to him. Seeing him periodically is hard. Watching him grow up on pictures and videos is hard. #Quote by Shawn Marion
Growing Up quotes by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
#142. I remember everything,' Bette Midler flatly notes. 'But you know how in life, you tend to hold grudges? Well, I don't do that any more. Bad, bad stuff. I did as a young person, but it just wore me out. Oh, it really did! How many times can you wake up in the middle of the night gnashing your teeth? It's so boring. Give it up! #Quote by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
Growing Up quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#143. More and more we are taught something throughout our growing up, our education, and continuously, no matter how much we believe in this thing, something comes up that forces us to revise our entire belief system. No matter whom you idolize, it turns out that Louis Armstrong collected vast amounts of pornography. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Growing Up quotes by Charlotte Eriksson
#144. No more blurry memories of nights with strangers but still alone... I'd had enough of homeless travelling just to feed my art and I wanted stability and comfort; a calm sense of existence. I wanted a friend, a hand to hold, arms to fall asleep in. #Quote by Charlotte Eriksson
Growing Up quotes by Denise Van Outen
#145. I'm not changing to the point where suddenly I wear floor-length skirts and start playing the violin; I'm just growing up a little bit, I guess. #Quote by Denise Van Outen
Growing Up quotes by Marjane Satrapi
#146. Teacher: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Marji: I'll be a prophet. #Quote by Marjane Satrapi
Growing Up quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#147. The religious school she went to, growing up, Ms. Wright said how all the girls had to wear a scarf tied to cover their ears at all times. Based on the biblical idea that the Virgin Mary became pregnant when the Holy Spirit whispered in her ear. The idea that ears were vaginas. That, hearing just one wrong idea, you lost your innocence. One detail too many and you'd be ruined. Overdosed on information. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Growing Up quotes by Millie Florence
#148. The more one discovers, the more one realizes how much more there is to discover. #Quote by Millie Florence
Growing Up quotes by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright
#149. Red Riding Hood is not a fairy tale, but rather a universal story about courage and growing up #Quote by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright
Growing Up quotes by George Galloway
#150. My own experience of growing up as a Roman Catholic in Scotland has led me to fear independence in Scotland. The possibility of Scotland being a kind of Stormont is a real one. I wrote a book recently about Neil Lennon's year of living dangerously and in the course of it I had to revisit some of my own experiences. Of course, most Scottish people are not swivel-eyed, loyalist sectarians but there are a large number of them. A large six-figure number, and if I were living in Scotland as a Roman Catholic I would be worried about that. #Quote by George Galloway
Growing Up quotes by Anna Kendrick
#151. I hate when people think you're broken because your parents are divorced. And I really reject the idea of staying together for the kids. If they're growing up in a house that's not healthy, it's better to know that's not the model of what marriage should be. #Quote by Anna Kendrick
Growing Up quotes by Bobby Orr
#152. Growing up in Canada, most kids from Canada dream of playing in the NHL, and they also hope one day to be on a Stanley Cup team. That was a big goal. #Quote by Bobby Orr
Growing Up quotes by Jonathan Anthony Burkett
#153. Instead of treating your child like how you were treated. Treat them with the same love and attention you wanted from your parents while growing up. #Quote by Jonathan Anthony Burkett
Growing Up quotes by Robin Lord Taylor
#154. I loved theater growing up, and my mom always took us to the touring productions that would come through town. We would go to Chicago all the time and see shows. I loved it. #Quote by Robin Lord Taylor
Growing Up quotes by Betty Dodson
#155. The clitoris is the female sex organ, and the fact that we aren't told that when we were small children is devastating. We grow up with no information about the pleasure center of our body. #Quote by Betty Dodson
Growing Up quotes by Andy Pettitte
#156. I try to sit down at night before they go to bed and read the Bible with them and do little devotionals and pray with them. I think if you instill it in them when they are young, they'll remember when they grow up. I raise them in church. When the doors are open, I want to be there. My kids love to go. So does my wife. #Quote by Andy Pettitte
Growing Up quotes by Jim Lee
#157. Many in the creative professions were nerds in their pasts because they spent so long reading comics and using their imaginations when they were growing up. #Quote by Jim Lee
Growing Up quotes by Edward Herrmann
#158. Growing up as a kid in Detroit, way back, there was a movie station that would show old kinescope reproductions of old movies, and I remember seeing Bela Lugosi for the first time and being duly frightened out of my wits. #Quote by Edward Herrmann
Growing Up quotes by Grace Gealey
#159. The greatest lesson I have learned in life is that I am enough simply because I have been given life. Growing up, I constantly found myself trying to please others because I wanted to be included and validated. I expended myself completely. #Quote by Grace Gealey
Growing Up quotes by William Monahan
#160. 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
Growing Up quotes by Karen Chance
#161. Be glad they didn't take you," I told him. "You were better off."
"I doubt that."
"I don't. You don't know what it's like, growing up around a bunch of people who treat you like an inferior, who see you only as a commodity to be used, who couldn't give a shit about you unless you're benefitting them in some way. . . ." I stopped, biting my lip. "You'd have tried to fit in, done your best to learn about them, to be one of them. But it would never have worked. You'd have always felt like what you were - an outsider. Because you're not like them. You're not . . . like anybody."
I looked up to see his face swimming in front of me.
"Be glad they didn't take you!"
"Someone in your life was stupid, too," he told me. And then he kissed me. #Quote by Karen Chance
Growing Up quotes by Thom Yorke
#162. I beat my children daily, with a shoe, because I don't want them to grow up fairies. At 9 p.m. I promptly play The Wall in full and walk around the house naked carrying cupcakes. It's important my children see my bits in graphic detail. #Quote by Thom Yorke
Growing Up quotes by Antonia Michaelis
#163. My child, I know you're not a child
But I still see you running wild
Between those flowering trees.
Your sparkling dreams, your silver laugh
Your wishes to the stars above
Are just my memories.

And in your eyes the ocean
And in your eyes the sea
The waters frozen over
With your longing to be free.

Yesterday you'd awoken
To a world incredibly old.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

You had to kill this child, I know.
To break the arrows and the bow
To shed your skin and change.
The trees are flowering no more
There's blood upon the tiles floor
This place is dark and strange.

I see you standing in the storm
Holding the curse of youth
Each of you with your story
Each of you with your truth.

Some words will never be spoken
Some stories will never be told.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

I didn't say the world was good.
I hoped by now you understood
Why I could never lie.
I didn't promise you a thing.
Don't ask my wintervoice for spring
Just spread your wings and fly.

Though in the hidden garden
Down by the green green lane
The plant of love grows next to
The tree of hate and pain.

So take my tears as a token.
They'll keep you warm in the cold.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold #Quote by Antonia Michaelis
Growing Up quotes by Will Rogers
#164. I was born because it was a habit in those days, people didn't know anything else ... I was not a Child Prodigy, because a Child Prodigy is a child who knows as much when it is a child as it does when it grows up. #Quote by Will Rogers
Growing Up quotes by Bijou Hunter
#165. Are you ready for dessert?" I finally asked.
"Where are you from?"
"I moved around a lot growing up."
"Family in the military?"
"No."
"Why New Hampton?"
"I'm a big fan of pork. Are you ready for dessert?"
Cooper smiled softly, but his gaze was dark. "Did you bring a boyfriend with you to town?"
"No," I said, stepping back. "I'm focused on school."
Nodding, Cooper gave me a little grin. "Message received," he muttered, taking the dessert menu and glancing at it. "For now anyway."
"I can come back."
"Nope. Bring me the brownie. Extra whip cream."
"I don't think that comes with whip cream."
"It does now. Extra whip cream in fact. #Quote by Bijou Hunter
Growing Up quotes by Marcel Proust
#166. The truth is that as we grow older we kill all those who love us by the cares we give them, by the anxious tenderness we inspire in them and constantly arouse. #Quote by Marcel Proust
Growing Up quotes by Margaret Mead

Growing Up quotes by Mike Stud
#169. I didn't have musical upbringing. I never listened to music growing up, thinking "I want to make my own music". I just listened to music for pleasure. #Quote by Mike Stud
Growing Up quotes by Eugene Jarecki
#170. I mean, like a lot of kids growing up in the early seventies, I was fed Dr. Kissinger with my Fruit Loops. He was the Dr. Ruth of American foreign policy, and the model statesman. #Quote by Eugene Jarecki
Growing Up quotes by Mary Jo Putney
#171. We all grow up thinking our parents found us under cabbage leaves and that sex didn't exist before our personal coming-of-age. #Quote by Mary Jo Putney
Growing Up quotes by Stephen King
#172. A lot of us grow up and we grow out of the literal interpretation that we get when we're children, but we bear the scars all our life. Whether they're scars of beauty or scars of ugliness, it's pretty much in the eye of the beholder. #Quote by Stephen King
Growing Up quotes by Astra Taylor
#173. My point, though, is that if lines have indeed shifted, it's not so much that the younger generation just doesn't care, it's that we have ceded more and more of our public life over to the private sector. If you grow up with advertising at school, you have come of age in a sold-out world. #Quote by Astra Taylor
Growing Up quotes by Taylor Swift
#174. I've apparently been the victim of growing up, which apparently happens to all of us at one point or another. It's been going on for quite some time now, without me knowing it. I've found that growing up can mean a lot of things. For me, it doesn't mean I should become somebody completely new and stop loving the things I used to love. It means I've just added more things to my list. #Quote by Taylor Swift
Growing Up quotes by Amber Benson

Growing Up quotes by Jacquelyn Nicole Davis
#179. I remember when I was growing up and there would be sick people in the church. I was always so sensitive to them sitting in the pews alone, and I would not pass by without saying hello. But even at those tender ages of 5 through 14, I felt like they carried the plague, and after seeing them I would turn around praying really hard to never experience sickness like that, ever. I'd pray that I wouldn't make God angry enough to curse me like that with really awful things, but I didn't think about grace. I did not understand that it does not work that way, that God's grace is so much bigger than our sin because of Jesus - but I do get it now. We go through what we do so that we can fulfill God's glory in our lives. #Quote by Jacquelyn Nicole Davis
Growing Up quotes by Christian Louboutin
#180. I never was interested in being part of the fashion world - I just wanted to design shoes. I didn't even know 'Vogue' existed when I was growing up. 'Vogue,' what is that?' #Quote by Christian Louboutin
Growing Up quotes by Elizabeth Kostova
#181. It's funny; in this era of e-mail and voice mail and all those things that even I did not grow up with, a plain old paper letter takes on amazing intimacy. #Quote by Elizabeth Kostova
Growing Up quotes by Brene Brown
#182. We can't pack down hurt, nor can we off-load it to someone else while maintaining our authenticity and integrity. Most of us have been on the receiving end of one of these outbursts. Even if we have the insight to know that our boss, friend, colleague, or partner blew up at us because something tender was triggered and it's not actually about us, it still shatters trust and respect. Living, growing up, working, or worshipping on eggshells creates huge cracks in our sense of safety and self-worth. Over time, it can be experienced as trauma. #Quote by Brene Brown
Growing Up quotes by Stephen King
#183. Don't let your elders and supposed betters tell you any different. Sure, you've never been to Paris. No, you never ran with the bulls at Pamploma. Yes, you're a pissant who had no hair in your armpits until three years ago - but so what? If you don't start out too big for your britches, how are you gonna fill 'em when you grow up? Let it rip regardless of what anybody tells you, that's my idea; sit down an smoke that baby. #Quote by Stephen King
Growing Up quotes by Doris Lessing
#184. [On her mother:] I was in nervous flight from her ever since I can remember anything, and from the age of fourteen I set myself obdurately against her in a kind of inner emigration from everything she represented. Girls do have to grow up, but has this battle always been so implacable? #Quote by Doris Lessing

Growing Up quotes by Georgi Gospodinov
#186. Why is it that places thousands of miles from my childhood village home send me back, opening the sluice-gates of the past? Well, we are all emigrants from the homeland of our childhoods. It may be, then, that the natural place to meet ourselves as children is 'abroad', and that includes the foreign country of our growing up and aging. So it is that the personal, physical feeling of departure from the time of childhood may merge in a special symbiosis with geographical departure, biography and geography resonating now on a single wavelength. #Quote by Georgi Gospodinov
Growing Up quotes by Stark Sands
#187. Luckily for me, when I was growing up in high school, I had a band, and I was a singer in the band. I'm less of a legit Broadway singer than I am a pop-rock singer. #Quote by Stark Sands
Growing Up quotes by Bill Hader

Growing Up quotes by Barbara Casey
#193. Cora Thompson had two of them
cats, that is. Which was quite remarkable considering she had never owned a pet before. Growing up in the rural South as she had, Cora had been taught that if an animal couldn't work in a field or be slaughtered for food, then it was of no use. Certainly any domesticated animal such as a dog or a cat would only bring about the destruction of fine furniture, stained carpets, and the onset of disease, not to mention the foul odor. That's just the way it was. #Quote by Barbara Casey

Growing Up quotes by Selena Gomez
#196. My first big career purchase when I was, like, 17 was a Louis Vuitton laptop bag. Now, seeing the exhibit [Louis Vuitton's "Series 3" exhibition in London], it's exciting because I feel like I kind of know it. It's weird - it's almost like something you grow up with and you just know a little bit about it. Now that I'm immersed in it, it's kind of insane. #Quote by Selena Gomez
Growing Up quotes by Susan Jacoby
#197. I completely can't understand people of different faiths who say that their children will choose when they grow up. I think that if you believe in a religion, most people believe that it's right. #Quote by Susan Jacoby
Growing Up quotes by Christine Gregoire
#198. Parents who have fought fiercely for the rights of their much-loved Gay and Lesbian children should not have to worry that their children will be treated differently. As a mother, I can tell you that there is no prouder moment than watching your children grow up, fall in love, and commit to that love in front of their families and friends. I want that same joy for every parent and every child. #Quote by Christine Gregoire
Growing Up quotes by Arnold Palmer
#199. I always knew what was most important to me. When I was growing up, nothing was more important than golf, but that's the attitude of a young person who hasn't a care in the world. Later on I figured it out. Family was first. Always. Then golf and business come after. #Quote by Arnold Palmer

Growing Up quotes by Arianna Huffington
#202. We have created a democracy that links us all, and with it come not only opportunities but obligations. There are no gates or walls high enough. There are no bank accounts large enough to buy you and your family and your friends protection from the fear and hunger of those left behind or to isolate you from the consequences of growing social inequities. We are all in this boat together. And the fact that there isn't a hole at your end of the boat doesn't mean you are safe. #Quote by Arianna Huffington
Growing Up quotes by Louis De Bernieres
#203. He noticed that a bedraggled and desiccated pink poppy was growing out of a crack where the wall of the teacher's house intersected with the cobbles of the street. #Quote by Louis De Bernieres
Growing Up quotes by Alberto Moravia
#204. I felt that the metal of my spirit, like a bar of iron that is softened and bent by a persistent flame, was being gradually softened and bent by the troubles that oppressed it. In spite of myself, I was conscious of a feeling of envy for those who did not suffer from such troubles, for the wealthy and the privileged; and this envy, I observed, was accompanied - still against my will - by a feeling of bitterness towards them, which, in turn, did not limit its aim to particular persons or situations, but, as if by an uncontrollable bias, tended to assume the general, abstract character of a whole conception of life. In fact, during those difficult days, I came very gradually to feel that my irritation and my intolerance of poverty were turning into a revolt against injustice, and not only against the injustice which struck at me personally but the injustice from which so many others like me suffered. I was quite aware of this almost imperceptible transformation of my subjective resentments into objective reflections and states of mind, owing to the bent of my thoughts which led always and irresistibly in the same direction: owing also to my conversation, which, without my intending it, alway harped upon the same subject. I also noticed in myself a growing sympathy for those political parties which proclaimed their struggle against the evils and infamies of the society to which, in the end I had attributed the troubles that beset me - a society which, as I thought, in reference #Quote by Alberto Moravia

Growing Up quotes by Rajneesh
#207. If you are a meditator, as your meditation goes on becoming more and more luminous, your intelligence will be growing to the last breath of your life. Not only that, even after the last breath your intelligence will continue to grow - because you are not going to die, only your body will be dying. And the body has nothing to do with intelligence, mind has nothing to do with intelligence. Intelligence is the quality of your awareness - more aware, more intelligent. And if you are totally aware, you are as intelligent as this whole existence is. #Quote by Rajneesh
Growing Up quotes by China Forbes
#208. It is important to me to keep trying to push myself to try lots of new musical styles and approaches. To keep growing. It is my version of jumping out of planes. #Quote by China Forbes
Growing Up quotes by Jennifer H. Westall
#209. I know it's hard to see," he said, "but God shows me his work in you every time we meet. I see your faith growing inside you like a beautiful spring bud, just ready to blossom. Whatever you think you're facing, the obstacles you's struggling to overcome, they's like rain feeding that bud inside you. Don't fear the storm. He's in the storm, just like he's in the gentle breeze. He gots you right where he wants you." I hugged #Quote by Jennifer H. Westall
Growing Up quotes by Naomi Klein
#210. Public infrastructure around the world is facing unprecedented stress, with hurricanes, cyclones, floods and forest fires all increasing in frequency and intensity. It's easy to imagine a future in which growing numbers of cities have their frail and long-neglected infrastructures knocked out by disasters and then are left to rot, their core services never repaired or rehabilitated. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Growing Up quotes by Marianne Williamson
#211. We're just afraid, period. Our fear is free-floating. We're afraid this isn't the right relationship or we're afraid it is. We're afraid they won't like us or we're afraid they will. We're afraid of failure or we're afraid of success. We're afraid of dying young or we're afraid of growing old. We're more afraid of life than we are of death. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Growing Up quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt
#212. A point has been reached where the peoples of the Americas must take cognizance of growing ill-will, of marked trends toward aggression, of increasing armaments, of shortening tempers
a situation which has in it many of the elements that lead to the tragedy of general war ... Peace is threatened by those who seek selfish power. #Quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt
Growing Up quotes by Carol S. Dweck
#213. In one world, failure is about having a setback. Getting a bad grade. Losing a tournament. Getting fired. Getting rejected. It means you're not smart or talented. In the other world, failure is about not growing. Not reaching for the things you value. It means you're not fulfilling your potential. In one world, effort is a bad thing. It, like failure, means you're not smart or talented. If you were, you wouldn't need effort. In the other world, effort is what makes you smart or talented. #Quote by Carol S. Dweck
Growing Up quotes by Kevin Hearne
#214. Luke Skywalker, hero of the Battle of Yavin, has cast his lot with the rebels, lending his formidable piloting skills to whatever missions his leaders assign him. But he is haunted by his all-too-brief lessons with Obi-Wan Kenobi and the growing certainty that mastery of the Force will be his path to victory over the Empire. #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Growing Up quotes by Robbie Robertson
#215. There is an extraordinary collaborative spirit when you are learning and growing. #Quote by Robbie Robertson
Growing Up quotes by Ha-Joon Chang
#216. Since the 1980s, we have given the rich a bigger slice of our pie in the belief that they would create more wealth, making the pie bigger than otherwise possible in the long run. The rich got the bigger slice of the pie all right, but they have actually reduced the pace at which the pie is growing. #Quote by Ha-Joon Chang
Growing Up quotes by Norm Coleman
#217. We have to get away from the class warfare and recognize that we are growing jobs by helping small business. #Quote by Norm Coleman
Growing Up quotes by Cammie Dunaway
#218. I'm thankful for my time with Nintendo and proud of our team's accomplishments in growing the Nintendo audience. I look forward to watching the continued growth of the Nintendo brand in the years ahead. #Quote by Cammie Dunaway
Growing Up quotes by Gabrielle Zevin
#219. There's the tree with the branches that everyone sees, and then there's the upside-down root tree, growing the opposite way. So Earth is the branches, growing in opposing but perfect symmetry. The branches don't think much about the roots, and maybe the roots don't think much about the branches, but all the time, they're connected by the trunk, you know? #Quote by Gabrielle Zevin
Growing Up quotes by Jane Fonda
#220. Stay curious, keep learning and keep growing. And always strive to be more interested than interesting. #Quote by Jane Fonda
Growing Up quotes by Verne Harnish
#221. It's between $1 million and $10 million that the team needs to focus on cash. Growth sucks cash, and since this is the first time the company will make a tenfold jump in size, the demands for cash will soar. In addition, at this stage of organizational development, the company is still trying to figure out its unique position in the marketplace, and these experiments (or mistakes) can be costly. This is when the cash model of the business needs to be worked out (e.g., "How is the business model going to generate sufficient cash for the company to keep growing?"). #Quote by Verne Harnish
Growing Up quotes by Craig Johnson
#222. I couldn't help but make a growling noise. "How long does she have?"

"I don't know, but the airspace in her chest cavity is growing and has collapsed the lung; it's now crowding her heart, Walter, to the point that it will no longer be able to pump the blood needed to keep her alive."

I set my jaw. "Well, we're going to have to get all western on this, aren't we? #Quote by Craig Johnson
Growing Up quotes by Misty Copeland
#223. I had no idea what I was walking into, and the years and years of hard work it would take. I felt like an outsider and like it was never going to happen. But even if I would have known, I think I still would have done it. Dancers are perfectionists, and that's what keeps us going and growing. #Quote by Misty Copeland
Growing Up quotes by Euginia Herlihy

Growing Up quotes by Sai Marie Johnson
#225. You're a damn pathetic sub yourself talking to me like that, Jules. Shut your cockholster, and let me do the real man's work. I've found a flower growing amidst your wild ass jungles, and I intend to enjoy her fragrance like a fine fucking vintage. #Quote by Sai Marie Johnson
Growing Up quotes by Howard Zinn
#226. The democratic principle, enunciated in the words of the Declaration of Independence, declared that government was secondary, that the people who established it were primary. Thus, the future of democracy depended on the people, and their growing consciousness of what was the decent way to relate to their fellow human beings all over the world. #Quote by Howard Zinn
Growing Up quotes by Lewis Carroll
#227. The great question certainly was, what? Alice looked all round her at the flowers and the blades of grass, but she did not see anything that looked like the right thing to eat or drink under the circumstances. There was a large mushroom growing near her, about the same height as herself; and when she had looked under it, and on both sides of it, and behind it, it occurred to her that she might as well look and see what was on the top of it. #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Growing Up quotes by Charles Bierbauer

Growing Up quotes by Max De Pree
#230. We cannot avoid growing old; but we can avoid growing cold. #Quote by Max De Pree
Growing Up quotes by Nick Hornby
#231. That is another chamber of my heart that shows no electrical activity - the chamber that used to flicker into life when I saw a film that moved me, or read a book that inspired me, or listened to music that made me want to cry. I closed that chamber myself, for all the usual reasons. And now I seem to have made a pact with some philistine devil: if I don't attempt to re-open it, I will be allowed just enough energy and optimism to get through a working day without wanting to hang myself. #Quote by Nick Hornby
Growing Up quotes by George R R Martin
#232. Some say knowledge is power. Some tell us that all power comes from the gods. Others say it derives from law. Yet that day on the steps of Baelor's Sept, our godly High Septon and the lawful Queen Regent and your ever-so-knowledgeable servant were as powerless as any cobbler or cooper in the crowd. Who truly killed Eddard Stark, do you think? Joffrey, who gave the command? Ser Ilyn Payne, who swung the sword? Or ... another?"
Tyrion cocked his head sideways. "Did you mean to answer your damned riddle, or only to make my head ache worse?"
Varys smiled. "Here, then. Power resides where men believe it resides. No more and no less."
"So power is a mummer's trick?"
"A shadow on the wall," Varys murmured, "yet shadows can kill. And ofttimes a very small man can cast a very large shadow."
Tyrion smiled. "Lord Varyls, I am growing strangely fond of you. I may kill you yet, but I think I'd feel sad about it. #Quote by George R R Martin
Growing Up quotes by Mike Fitzpatrick
#233. Make no mistake; child predation on the Internet is a growing problem. #Quote by Mike Fitzpatrick
Growing Up quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#234. The most fundamental, basic need in magick, is the development of the will. The magus says, "I will, and not heaven nor hell can stop me." It is in this forming and growing, creating, of the will, where heaven and hell learns to follow the will of the magus. A person who wants to develop the soul must never say, "Maybe" or "If I see a sign" because the master creates his own signs. If you need a star to align in front of a tree because that to you would be a sign, then you make the star align with the tree, if not in this world, in the other worlds and in the other dimensions. There are no "ifs" and there are no "maybes" there are only "I wills." This is the basic platform of magick, and most people never get past it, because not all can. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Growing Up quotes by Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan
#235. U.A.E.'s continuously growing initiatives in the field of charitable and humanitarian works became a basic component of our foreign activities. #Quote by Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan
Growing Up quotes by Pepper Winters
#236. My life, on the other hand, would increase in value, growing wiser, and richer in experience the longer I survived. I was an investment, not a liability. And I would invest everything I had into giving myself a future. #Quote by Pepper Winters
Growing Up quotes by Mochtar Lubis
#237. Saimun pondered. How come that when something is difficult to get or you don't have it, and you just get a chance to taste it for a moment, a small matter can become so big, doubling, trebling, growing ever larger? This morning one kretek cigarette dominated his whole soul. As if his life depended on one cigarette and if he could get that cigarette his life would be prolonged, as it were, for ever. One cigarette could fulfill his existence. #Quote by Mochtar Lubis
Growing Up quotes by Anthony Hitt
#238. Our new app increases the exposure of Engel & Volkers' premier services and properties to the growing number of iPad users who are researching their real estate markets, locally and globally. #Quote by Anthony Hitt
Growing Up quotes by David Suzuki
#239. With the world's human population now at seven billion and growing, and the demand for technology and modern conveniences increasing, we can't control all our negative impacts. But we have to find better ways to live within the limits nature and its cycles impose. #Quote by David Suzuki
Growing Up quotes by John Donne
#240. Love is a growing, or full constant light,
And his first minute, after noon, is night. #Quote by John Donne
Growing Up quotes by M.J. Rose
#241. I wouldn't think it happens easily or often, never for some people. I imagine a love like that is like a fire starting with a spark and growing into a blaze becoming an engulfing passion too hot for most people to withstand. #Quote by M.J. Rose
Growing Up quotes by George Eliot
#242. Looking at your life as a debt may seem the dreariest view of things at a distance; but it cannot really be so. What makes life dreary is the want of motive; but once beginning to act with the penitential, loving purpose you have in your mind, there will be unexpected satisfactions
there will be newly-opening needs
continually coming to carry you on from day to day. You will find your life growing like a plant. #Quote by George Eliot
Growing Up quotes by Rainer Maria Rilke
#243. Now it was there. Now it was growing within me like a tumor, like a second head, and it was a part of me, though it surely could not be mine, since it was so big. There it was, like a big dead animal that had once been my hand when it was still alive, or my arm. And my blood was flowing through me, and through it, as if through one and the same body. And my heart was having to make a great effort to pump the blood into the big thing: there was very nearly not enough blood. And the blood was loth to pass in, and emerged sick and tainted. But the big thing swelled and grew before my face, like a warm, bluish boil, and grew before my mouth, and already its margin cast a shadow on my remaining eye. #Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke
Growing Up quotes by Bob Hayes
#244. With support jobs moving to China and India, it's not surprising that English-speaking countries' top frustration revolves around the difficulty of understanding customer service representatives. However, even if the level of customer service is exceptional, the extent to which poorly-understood accents trump quality of service speaks to English-speaking customers' growing intolerance of non-native speech, more so than in other countries. #Quote by Bob Hayes
Growing Up quotes by James Hollis
#245. This is an example of what Jung called "the regressive restoration of the persona," namely, the re-identification with a former position, role, ideology because it offers a predictable content, security, and script. In the face of the new and uncertain, we often return to the old place, which is why we so often stop growing. (It has become clear to me, for example, that aging itself does not bring wisdom. It often brings regression to childishness, dependency, and bitterness over lost opportunities. #Quote by James Hollis
