My lyrics come from my experiences growing up in life, trying to find out and express who I am. That's basically it. I'm not trying to be a prophet or anything like that. I'm just reflecting on life. -Sean Paul

Well it seems to me, that all real communities grow out of a shared confrontation with survival. Communities are not produced by sentiment or mere goodwill. They grow out of a shared struggle. Our situation in the desert is an incubator for community. -Larry Harvey

One likes to think one grows as a writer as one ages, else all you get is an 'old' young writer. Beyond that is the changing landscape of the universe and the stories I choose to tell. -Raymond E. Feist

I enjoyed growing up part of my life in Virginia Beach. We had the ocean and the beach and a beautiful landscape. We were outdoors all the time and we played outside. -Mark Ruffalo

Sinn Fein is the fastest growing party on the island of Ireland. -Martin McGuinness

At the time I was growing up in the business I was very well established within the industry as a child actor and as I grew up and turned into a teenager there was less and less work. -Morgan Brittany

What is most important for Europe is economic growth and jobs, security at home and safety in the world. -Peter Mandelson

It was an absurd theory that by cutting taxes you would increase government revenues, because the growth of the economy would create an overflow of taxes that would fall into the government coffers. -Sidney Blumenthal

Hopefully, as a band, it will grow and develop for a good length of time. -Trevor Dunn

I can't stay in L.A. too long or it starts to grow on me in a bad way. -Henry Thomas

I think it's as popular as it ever has been and it continues to grow as it does all around the world. -Karrie Webb

I wanted to grow up to be just like my father. -Michael Bergin

I'm from there. You know, when you grow up with these people and see them every day and then you look at the numbers it was easy; it was a no-brainer. And when Sony took a look, it was a no-brainer to them, too. -Magic Johnson

I was terribly shy when I was growing up, I really wasn't confident with other people and I think I was always afraid of up or not being this very cool, amazing person that I wanted to be. -Emily Mortimer

Among the letters my readers write me, there is a certain category which is continuously growing, and which I see as a symptom of the increasing intellectualization of the relationship between readers and literature. -Hermann Hesse

That's the reason some schools of thinking don't rule out a destruction of the Chinese military potential before the situation grows worse than it is today. It's bad enough now. -Curtis LeMay

When I was growing up in East Germay, everyone said there was no God. So I started looking for it myself. -Nina Hagen

Is it possible that literacy standards are falling because young Australians are growing up in a culture in which they can be entertained and informed, and in which they can communicate effectively, without having to master any but the most rudimentary literacy skills? -Hugh Mackay

After we have calmly stood by and allowed monopolies to grow fat, we should not be asked to make them bloated. -John Griffin Carlisle

If you live for pleasure, your ability to enjoy it may pass away and your senses grow dim. -Matthew Simpson

My research in this period centered around growth, technical change, and income distribution, both how growth affected the distribution of income and how the distribution of income affected growth. -Joseph Stiglitz

I think in part the reason is that seeing an economy that is, in many ways, quite different from the one grows up in, helps crystallize issues: in one's own environment, one takes too much for granted, without asking why things are the way they are. -Joseph Stiglitz

One of the things I've had the advantage of, growing up and being close to the top management of this company and other companies for most of my life, is seeing how CEOs start to believe in their own infallibility. And that really scares me. -William Clay Ford, Jr.

I think I've grown a lot in the last few years, and I needed to express myself as an artist on this. It wasn't necessarily about going in and making an album chocked full of hit singles… there were a lot of things I did out of the joy and the want to do it. -Terri Clark

No doubt, man will continue to weigh and to measure, watch himself grow, and his Universe around him and with him, according to the ever growing powers of his tools. -Albert Claude

By the new year of 1994, it had grown up into Inform 4 and could produce games twice as large. -Graham Nelson

I'm rather pleased with the new manuals. I see Inform now as a gauche young adult, having got past the stage of growing out of his shoes every few months. -Graham Nelson

The great thing about being the son of Maya Angelou is that I had the good fortune to grow up around some of the greatest black artists, dancers, singers, musicians, and actors of our time. -Guy Johnson

I got a cable from New York saying that what I'd written about the growth of Soviet agricultural production didn't make sense because the same levels were reached under the czars. I wanted to confirm it, but by then the censors were on to me. -Harrison Salisbury

In an effort to eliminate the possibility of any rival growing up, some monopolists would sacrifice democracy itself. -Henry A. Wallace

I think it would be very scary and very confusing if I didn't understand where people are coming from, but I've felt the exact same way for so many other bands, growing up. It's not really a big deal. -Jon Crosby

We're all like children. We may think we grow up, but to me, being grown up is death, stopping thinking, trying to find out things, going on learning. -Mary Wesley

And the university's reputation will only continue to grow as stories like Elaine's are spread. Delaware State University's motto 'a past to honor, a future to insure,' couldn't be any more fitting for this transitional period you are going through. -Michael N. Castle

With the establishment of a presence in all three counties of Delaware, recruitment in and outside Delaware and throughout the world and new master's and doctoral programs, Delaware State University will continue to grow and attract even more qualified students. -Michael N. Castle

I'm not overly alarmist about it, but I do think there are some worrying signs, like the growing accumulation of wealth by a very small proportion of the population, plus elections in the US are much more dominated by money than anywhere else calling itself a democracy. -Peter Singer

But an innovation, to grow organically from within, has to be based on an intact tradition, so our idea is to bring together musicians who represent all these traditions, in workshops, festivals, and concerts, to see how we can connect with each other in music. -Yo-Yo Ma

One is that you have to take time, lots of time, to let an idea grow from within. The second is that when you sign on to something, there will be issues of trust, deep trust, the way the members of a string quartet have to trust one another. -Yo-Yo Ma

Creative comedy is like growing geraniums in a mine field. -Jerry Stiller

We were growing up in West Virginia. Everybody was poor there in the southern part of the state. It was like growing up in the Great Depression from the stories I hear people tell. Everybody was poor and so we didn't know that we were any different from anybody else. -James Green Somerville

It seems true that the growth of science and secularism made organized Christianity feel under threat. -Mary Douglas

My art is an attempt to reach beyond the surface appearance. I want to see growth in wood, time in stone, nature in a city, and I do not mean its parks but a deeper understanding that a city is nature too-the ground upon which it is built, the stone with which it is made. -Andy Goldsworthy

Judging from what looks like the popularity of this classic wrestling show is that the people like what they have grown to know and love here in Memphis. -Jerry Lawler

And I grew up watching all the British ones so when you hear that from an early age, it makes it much easier than you guys who don't grow up with Australian television or British television. -Rachel Griffiths

The difference is that for a soundly conceived and solidly endowed republic it takes a great deal longer for those seeds to germinate and the plants to grow. -Robert W. Welch, Jr.

The Wood was about young people and the other one is more of a grown up movie. -Taye Diggs

Their Internet usage is growing very rapidly, and even they can do the math: If everyone in China needed an IPv4 address – just one – this country would use up one third of the entire public IP address space. -Vint Cerf

There is an underlying, fundamental reliance on the Internet, which continues to grow in the number of users, country penetration and both fixed and wireless broadband access. -Vint Cerf

We remain in Iraq because we know that sometimes liberty needs some nursing before it can grow on its own. -Virginia Foxx

For how many people do you think might yet stand on this planet before the sun grows cold? That's the responsibility we hold in our hands. -David R. Brower

The commerce of India does not grow, nor does that of Portugal, or of Turkey; that but that of the protected countries does increase, as has been shown in the case of Spain, and can now be shown in that of Germany. -Henry Charles Carey

As regards this country, in which protection has always to some extent existed, it is the best customer that England ever had, and our demands upon her grow most steadily and regularly under protection. -Henry Charles Carey

As the U.S. trade deficit, and the portion of that deficit attributed to China, continue to grow, our own economy is at risk of losing its reputation as a leader in world trade. -Jo Ann Emerson

My assignment was exclusively in the research field, and my first published paper, On the Optimal Use of Winds for Flight Planning, was the outgrowth of that work. -Kenneth Arrow

So high do these plants stand in the favour of the Chinese gardener, that he will cultivate them extensively, even against the wishes of his employer; and, in many instances, rather leave his situation than give up the growth of his favourite flower. -Robert Fortune

Sometimes, as is the case of peach and plum trees, which are often dwarfed, the plants are thrown into a flowering states, and then, as they flower freely year after year, they have little inclination to make vigorous growth. -Robert Fortune

I feel like I've come out of this grown up, maybe because I live through the character vicariously and she grows up so much during the course of this story. -Emmy Rossum

I want to be the first lady to land a quadruple jump in competition. As I grow older, I know that my skating style will develop and mature. -Sasha Cohen

I think from here on it's up to me to prove that I'm growing up and that I have other things to say, but in terms of the show it definitely gave me all of the opportunities I've had so far. -Shiri Appleby

When I was growing up, it was 'Communists'. Now it's 'Terrorists'. So you always have to have somebody to fight and be afraid of, so the war machine can build more bombs, guns, and bullets and everything. -Cindy Sheehan

It's just a fact of life. Everybody grows up and goes through changes, and our audience has seen it all. -Brian Austin Green

I've tended to work at fast-growing companies that improve the way business gets done. -Jim Barksdale

When you grow up on film, people sometimes have difficulties accepting the fact that you are growing up. They always imagine you younger. -Michelle Trachtenberg

It's possible to become so comfortable with one's style and structure that one ceases to grow. -Lynn Abbey

Well, I didn't really grow up playing or listening to metal, like many of the kids I went to school with. I only got into it in my late teens, so when Marilyn Manson formed, it was at a time when I was still excited about approaching music from that angle. -Daisy Berkowitz

There are two types of Chinese growing up in America. One is the kind that does really well in school, with thick, thick glasses. And the other is involved with the gangs. -Donnie Yen

Chick Corea was a great influence on me, musically, as I was growing up. -Debra Wilson

We're no longer a small business; we're a large organization spread around the world. I can't imagine Netscape growing as fast as it has if it weren't for the way we use our products. -Jim Barksdale

My father started growing very quiet as Alzheimer's started claiming more of him. The early stages of Alzheimer's are the hardest because that person is aware that they're losing awareness. And I think that that's why my father started growing more and more quiet. -Patti Davis

Like most kids growing up, I had a very wide interest. I was interested in everything. I tried to take advantage of everything, from the sciences to music to writing to literature. -Michael P. Anderson

In addition to the decline in competition, American politics today is characterized by a growing ideological polarization between the two major political parties. -Thomas E. Mann

My songs grow on people – like warts. -Glenn Frey

Life seemed so simple and joyous when I was growing up. -Kathie Lee Gifford

I did grow up with a really big interest in math and science; I liked it. -Linda M. Godwin

If you or me go to the gas station to fill up our car and it costs us much more than we expected, it will zap our discretionary income. We won't have the extra money to buy that washing machine or new winter coat-all big ticket items that are important to economic growth. -Maria Bartiromo

Oil is a very important component of economic growth. -Maria Bartiromo

I think that obstacles lead to growth and ultimately, the most learning I've done in my life is between jobs. -Anthony Michael Hall

I think the obvious answer is I was raised in New York City, so growing up, not only myself but my family, like my father, we would watch a lot of Scorsese films. -Anthony Michael Hall

I begin to grow heartily tired of the etiquette and nonsense so fashionable in this city. -George Mason

In 1792, my Sister told me, I was growing out of my senses. -Joanna Southcott

We also very importantly recommend continued growth in the Army and the Marine Corps end strength. -John M. McHugh
