Growths Sayings By George Eliot: It might seem singular that Nancy - with her religious theory pieced together out of It might seem singular that Nancy - with her religious theory pieced together out of narrow social traditions, fragments of church doctrine imperfectly understood, and girlish reasonings on her small experience - should have arrived by herself at a way of thinking so nearly akin to that of many devout people, whose beliefs are held in the shape of a system quite remote from her knowledge - singular, if we did not know that human beliefs, like all other natural growths, elude the barriers of system. — George Eliot

"So I could forget my own name, start smelling purple everywhere and have an extra nipple sprout from my forehead? — D.D. Barant

Growths Sayings By Haruki Murakami: A few beasts have frozen to death in their posture of sleep. Yet they appear A few beasts have frozen to death in their posture of sleep. Yet they appear not dead so much as deep in meditation. No breath issues from them. Their bodies unmoving, their awareness swallowed in darkness. After all the other beasts have gone through the Gate, these dead remain like growths on the face of the earth. Their horns angle up into space, almost alive. I — Haruki Murakami

Growths Sayings By Lyndon B. Johnson: But we have not used our waters well. Our major rivers are defiled by noxious But we have not used our waters well. Our major rivers are defiled by noxious debris. Pollutants from cities and industries kill the fish in our streams. Many waterways are covered with oil slicks and contain growths of algae that destroy productive life and make the water unfit for recreation. "Polluted Water-No Swimming" has become a familiar sign on too many beaches and rivers. A lake that has served many generations of men now can be destroyed by man in less than one generation. — Lyndon B. Johnson

Growths Sayings By John Wyndham: Marvelously clear-fretted in the unsmoked air, the Abbey rose, silver-grey. It stood detached by the Marvelously clear-fretted in the unsmoked air, the Abbey rose, silver-grey. It stood detached by the serenity of age from the ephemeral growths around it. It was solid on a foundation of centuries, destined, perhaps, for centuries yet to preserve within it the monuments to those whose work was now all destroyed. I did not loiter there. In years to come I expect some will go o look at the old Abbey with romantic melancholy. But romance of that kind is an alloy of tragedy with retrospect. I was too close. — John Wyndham

Growths Sayings By Peter Conrad: [T]here are no illnesses in nature, only relationships. There are, of course, naturally occurring events, [T]here are no illnesses in nature, only relationships. There are, of course, naturally occurring events, including infectious viruses, malignant growths, ruptures of tissues, and unusual chromosome constellations, but these are not ipso facto illnesses. Without the social meaning that humans attach to them they do not constitute illness or disease:

The fracture of a septuagenarian's femur has, within the world of nature, so more significance than the snapping of an autumn leaf from its twig; and the invasion of a human organism by cholera germs carries with it no more the stamp of "illness" than the souring of milk by other forms of bacteria. (Sedgwick, 1972, p. 211) — Peter Conrad

I can know that truth is divine and helpful; but how it shall help me I can have no guess, for so to be is the sole inlet of so to know. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Democracy, with its myriad personalities and increasing sophistication, must Without enough wilderness America will change.

Growths Sayings By Henry Ward Beecher: There can be no barrenness in full summer. The very sand will yield something. Rocks There can be no barrenness in full summer. The very sand will yield something. Rocks will have mosses, and every rift will have its wind-flower, and every crevice a leaf; while from the fertile soil will be reared a gorgeous troop of growths, that will carry their life in ten thousand forms, but all with praise to God. And so it is when the soul knows its summer. Love redeems its weakness, clothes its barrenness, enriches its poverty, and makes its very desert to bud and blossom as the rose. — Henry Ward Beecher

Growths Sayings By Nathanael West: Let us consider the holes in our own bodies and into what these congenital wounds Let us consider the holes in our own bodies and into what these congenital wounds open. Under the skin of man is a wondrous jungle where veins like lush tropical growths hang along over-ripe organs and weed-like entrails writhe in squirming tangles of red and yellow. In this jungle, flitting from rock-gray lungs to golden intestines, from liver to lights and back to liver again, lives a bird called the soul. — Nathanael West
Growths Sayings By Salman Rushdie: When a reader falls in love with a book, it leaves its essence inside him, When a reader falls in love with a book, it leaves its essence inside him, like radioactive fallout in an arable field, and after that there are certain crops that will no longer grow in him, while other, stranger, more fantastic growths may occasionally be produced.

Growths Sayings By Michael Ende: Soon some of the plants were as big as fruit trees. There were fans of Soon some of the plants were as big as fruit trees. There were fans of long emerald-green leaves, flowers resembling peacock tails with rainbow-colored eyes, pagodas consisting of sumperimposed unbrellas of violet silk. Thick stems were interwoven like braids. Since they were transparent, they looked like pink glass lit up from within. Some of the blooms looked like clusters of blue and yellow Japanese lanterns. And little by little, as the luminous night growths grew denser, they intertwined to form a tissue of soft light. — Michael Ende
Growths Sayings By Harriet Beecher Stowe: Cathedrals do not seem to me to have been built. They seem, rather, stupendous growths Cathedrals do not seem to me to have been built. They seem, rather, stupendous growths of nature, like crystals, or cliffs of basalt. — Harriet Beecher Stowe
Growths Sayings By Anais Nin: The potion drunk by lovers is prepared by no one but themselves. The potion is The potion drunk by lovers is prepared by no one but themselves. The potion is the sum of one's whole existence. Every word spoken in the past accumulated forms and color in the self. What flows through the veins besides blood is the distillation of every act committed, the sediment of all the visions, wishes, dreams, and experiences. All the past emotions converge to tint the skin and flavor the lips, to regulate the pulse and produce crystals in the eyes.
The fascination exerted by one human being over another is not what he emits of his personality at the present instant of encounter but a summation of his entire being which gives off this powerful drug capturing the fancy and attachment.
No moment of charm without long roots in the past, no moment of charm is born on bare soil, a careless accident of beauty, but is the sum of great sorrows, growths, and efforts.
But love, the great narcotic, was the hothouse in which all the selves burst into their fullest bloom ... — Anais Nin
Growths Sayings By William Wordsworth: Now when the primrose makes a splendid show, And lilies face the March-winds in full Now when the primrose makes a splendid show, And lilies face the March-winds in full blow, And humbler growths as moved with one desire Put on, to welcome spring, their best attire, Poor Robin is yet flowerless; but how gay With his red stalks upon this sunny day! — William Wordsworth
Growths Sayings By Mark Twain: Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century. — Mark Twain
Growths Sayings By Gottfried Leibniz: There never is absolute birth nor complete death, in the strict sense, consisting in the There never is absolute birth nor complete death, in the strict sense, consisting in the separation of the soul from the body. What we call births are developments and growths, while what we call deaths are envelopments and diminutions. — Gottfried Leibniz
Growths Sayings By Hilary Mantel: I look like a watermelon with a great slice hacked out. I say to myself, I look like a watermelon with a great slice hacked out. I say to myself, it's just another border post on the frontier between medicine and greengrocery; growths and tumour seem always to be described as "the size of a plum" or "the size of a grapefruit". — Hilary Mantel
Growths Sayings By Paramahansa Yogananda: Gross man seldom or never realizes that his body is a kingdom, governed by Emperor Gross man seldom or never realizes that his body is a kingdom, governed by Emperor Soul on the throne of the cranium, with subsidiary regents in the six spinal centres or spheres of consciousness. This theocracy extends over a throng of obedient subjects: twenty-seven thousand billion cells (endowed with sure if seemingly automatic intelligence by which they perform all duties of bodily growths, transformations, and dissolutions) and fifty million substratal thoughts, emotions, and variations of alternating phases in man's consciousness in an average life of sixty years. Any — Paramahansa Yogananda
Growths Sayings By Anne Sexton: I have forgiven all the old actors for dying.A new one comes on with the I have forgiven all the old actors for dying.

perfectly mated. — Anne Sexton
Growths Sayings By James Boswell: Friendship, "the wine of life," should, like a well-stocked cellar, be continually renewed; and it Friendship, "the wine of life," should, like a well-stocked cellar, be continually renewed; and it is consolatory to think, that although we can seldom add what will equal the generous first growths of our youth, yet friendship becomes insensibly old in much less time than is commonly imagined, and not many years are required to make it mellow and pleasant. — James Boswell
Growths Sayings By D.H. Lawrence: It seems to me absolutely true, that our world, which appears to us the surface It seems to me absolutely true, that our world, which appears to us the surface of all things, is really the bottom of a deep ocean: all our trees are submarine growths, and we are weird, scaly-clad submarine fauna, feeding ourselves on offal like shrimps. Only occasionally the soul rises gasping through the fathomless fathoms under which we live, far up to the surface of the ether, where there is true air. — D.H. Lawrence
Growths Sayings By C.S. Lewis: Perhaps in the soul, as in the soil, those growths that show the brightest colours Perhaps in the soul, as in the soil, those growths that show the brightest colours and put forth the most overpowering smell have not always the deepest root. — C.S. Lewis
Growths Sayings By Louis Adamic: From Mount Hollywood, Los Angeles looks rather nice, enveloped in a haze of changing colors. From Mount Hollywood, Los Angeles looks rather nice, enveloped in a haze of changing colors. Actually, and in spite of all the healthful sunshine and ocean breezes, it is a bad place - full of old, dying people, who were born old of tired pioneer parents, victims of America - full of curious wild and poisonous growths, decadent religious cults and fake science, and wildcat enterprises, which, with their aim for quick profit, are doomed to collapse and drag down multitudes of people. — Louis Adamic
Growths Sayings By Walt Whitman: O Earth, that hast no voice, confide to me a voice!O harvest of my lands! O Earth, that hast no voice, confide to me a voice!

O lavish, brown, parturient earth! O infinite, teeming womb!
A verse to seek, to see, to narrate thee. — Walt Whitman
Growths Sayings By Vladimir Nabokov: Aunt Rosa, a fussy, angular, wild-eyed old lady, who had lived in a tremulous world Aunt Rosa, a fussy, angular, wild-eyed old lady, who had lived in a tremulous world of bad news, bankruptcies, train accidents, cancerous growths - until the Germans put her to death, together with all the people she had worried about. — Vladimir Nabokov
Growths Sayings By E. M. Forster: But man is an odd, sad creature as yet, intent on pilfering the earth, and But man is an odd, sad creature as yet, intent on pilfering the earth, and heedless of the growths within himself. He cannot be bored about psychology. He leaves it to the specialist, which is as if he should leave his dinner to be eaten by a steam-engine. He cannot be bothered to digest his own soul. — E. M. Forster
Growths Sayings By Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.: Any new formula which suddenly emerges in our consciousness has its roots in long trains Any new formula which suddenly emerges in our consciousness has its roots in long trains of thought; it is virtually old when it first makes its appearance among the recognized growths of our intellect. — Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
Growths Sayings By Charles Fort: If human thought is a growth, like all other growths, its logic is without foundation If human thought is a growth, like all other growths, its logic is without foundation of its own, and is only the adjusting constructiveness of all other growing things. A tree cannot find out, as it were, how to blossom, until comes blossom-time. A social growth cannot find out the use of steam engines, until comes steam-engine-time. — Charles Fort
Growths Sayings By Titus Lucretius Carus: It must not be supposed that atoms of every sort can be linked in every It must not be supposed that atoms of every sort can be linked in every variety of combination. If that were so, you would see monsters coming into being everywhere. Hybrid growths of man and beast would arise. Lofty branches would spread here and there from a living body. Limbs of land-beast and sea-beast would often be conjoined. Chimeras breathing flame from hideous jaws would be reared by nature throughout the all-generating earth. — Titus Lucretius Carus
Growths Sayings By Emma Goldman: Destruction and violence! How is the ordinary man to know that the most violent element Destruction and violence! How is the ordinary man to know that the most violent element in society is ignorance; that its power of destruction is the very thing Anarchism is combating? Nor is he aware that Anarchism, whose roots, as it were, are part of nature's forces, destroys, not healthful tissue, but parasitic growths that feed on the life's essence of society. It is merely clearing the soil from weeds and sagebrush, that it may eventually bear healthy fruit. — Emma Goldman
Growths Sayings By Thorstein Veblen: The taste of the more recent accessions to the leisure class proper and of the The taste of the more recent accessions to the leisure class proper and of the middle and lower classes still requires a pecuniary beauty to supplement the aesthetic beauty, even in those objects which are primarily admired for the beauty that belongs to them as natural growths. — Thorstein Veblen
