Grown

Famous quotes containing the word grown:

    ...I had grown up in a world that was dominated by immature age. Not by vigorous immaturity, but by immaturity that was old and tired and prudent, that loved ritual and rubric, and was utterly wanting in curiosity about the new and the strange. Its era has passed away, and the world it made has crumbled around us. Its finest creation, a code of manners, has been ridiculed and discarded.
    Ellen Glasgow (1873–1945)

    “The work is done,” grown old he thought,
    “According to my boyish plan;
    Let the fools rage, I swerved in nought,
    Something to perfection brought;”
    But louder sang that ghost “What then?”
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    The Fashionable World is grown free and easie; our Manners sit more loose upon us: Nothing is so modish as an agreeable Negligence. In a word, Good Breeding shows it self most, where to an ordinary Eye it appears the least.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)
