Famous quotes containing the word grow:

    Bernice Weissbourd (20th century)

    Greece is a sort of American vassal; the Netherlands is the country of American bases that grow like tulip bulbs; Cuba is the main sugar plantation of the American monopolies; Turkey is prepared to kow-tow before any United States pro-consul and Canada is the boring second fiddle in the American symphony.

    will I live long enough
    to grow up
    and momma’s in the bedroom
    with the door closed.
    Audre Lorde (b. 1934)
