      - William Shakespeare

Gard'ner, for telling me these news of woe,
  Pray God the plants thou graft'st may never grow.

'Ay,' quoth my uncle Gloucester,
  'Small herbs have grace, great weeds do grow apace.'
    And since, methinks, I would not grow so fast,
      Because sweet flow'rs are slow and weeds make haste.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (York at II, iv)

O, my lord,
  You said that idle weeds are fast in growth:
    The prince my brother hath outgrown me far.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (York at III, i)

To hold the same views at forty as we held at twenty is to have been stupefied for a score of years, and take rank, not as a prophet, but as an unteachable brat, well birched and none the wiser.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson

You must grow like a tree, not like a mushroom.
      - Janet Erskine Stuart

I held it truth, with him who sings
  To one clear harp in divers tones,
    That men may rise on stepping stones
      Or their dead selves to higher things.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (pt. I)

The great world's altar stairs
  That slope through darkness up to God.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam (pt. LV)

Then bless thy secret growth, nor catch
  At noise, but thrive unseen and dumb;
    Keep clean, be as fruit, earn life, and watch,
      Till the white-wing'd reapers come.
      - Henry Vaughan ("The Silurist"),
        The Seed Growing Secretly

Lick into shape.
  [Lat., Lambendo effingere.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        see Suetonis, "Life of Vergil"

Let us develop the resources of our land, call forth its powers, build up its institutions, promote all its great interests, and see whether we also, in our day and generation, may not perform something worthy to be remembered.
      - Daniel Webster

We teach people how to remember, we never teach them how to grow.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

And that unless above himself he can
  Erect himself, how poor a thing is man.
      - William Wordsworth, Excursion (V, 158),
        (Knight's edition)

Teach me, by this stupendous scaffolding,
  Creation's golden steps, to climb to Thee.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts (night IX)
