The cello is like a beautiful woman who has not grown older, but younger with time, more slender, more supple, more graceful.
Being grown up and in a serious relationship, I've learned so much.
I'm happier than I've every been.
When I see friends from school I think they've all grown old and I've stayed the same.
I've grown up knowing that you put as much of your private life out there as you feel comfortable with.
I'm a grown woman and sometimes, I might be a little fat, you know? Am I alone there? Not really.
As I've gotten older and grown more independent, I think for myself, and that's how it should be.
One is never so dangerous when one has no shame, than when one has grown too old to blush.
It was a bitter moment for us. We weren't two mature parents. We were just two kids playing grown-up. We still needed Mommy and Daddy's permission, blessings, and money to survive.
Fiction is to the grown man what play is to the child;
it is there that he changes the atmosphere and tenor of his life.
We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven.
We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!
And kid Congress and the Senate, dont scold em.
They are just children thats never grown up. They dont like to be corrected in company. Dont send messages to em, send candy.
Actors often behave like children, and so we're taken for children. I want to be grown up.
He who considers disease results to be the disease itself, and expects to do away with these as diseases, is insane. It is an insanity in medicine, an insanity that has grown out of the milder forms of mental disorder in science, crazy whims.
Women over fifty already form one of the largest groups in the population structure of the western world. As long as they like themselves, they will not be an oppressed minority. In order to like themselves they must reject trivialization by others of who and what they are. A grown woman should not have to masquerade as a girl in order to remain in the land of the living.
Every man who has lived for fifty years has buried a whole world or even two;
he has grown used to its disappearance and accustomed to the new scenery of another act: but suddenly the names and faces of a time long dead appear more and more often on his way, calling up series of shades and pictures kept somewhere, just in case, in the endless catacombs of the memory, making him smile or sigh, and sometimes almost weep.
They that have grown old in a single state are generally found to be morose, fretful and captious; tenacious of their own practices and maxims; soon offended by contradiction or negligence; and impatient of any association but with those that will watch their nod, and submit themselves to unlimited authority.
When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at twenty, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch the waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at eighty.
I pray we are still a young and courageous nation, that we have not grown so old and so fat and so prosperous that all we can think about is to sit back with our arms around our money bags. If we choose to do that I have no doubt that the smoldering fires will burst into flame and consume us -- dollars and all.
