A Quote by Norman Mailer on death, failure, growth, mystery, success, and understanding

"Growth is a greater mystery than death. All of us can understand failure, we all contain failure and death within us, but not even the successful man can begin to describe the impalpable elations and apprehensions of growth."

A Quote by May Sarton on birth, creativity, death, garden, good, growth, and mystery

In the garden the door is always open into the "holy" - growth, birth, death. Every flower holds the whole mystery in its short cycle, and in the garden we are never far away from death, the fertilizing, good, creative death.

A Quote by Martin L. Gross on disaster, economics, government, growth, history, jobs, manufacturing, money, people, time, and world

Government at all levels has emerged as our number one growth industry...for the first time in American history - even in the history of the Western industrialized world - there are more people working for government at all levels (18.7 million) than in manufacturing (18.1 million). Since manufacturing jobs make money while government jobs take money, this has become an equation for economic disaster.

A Quote by Margaret Bondfield on compromise, growth, learning, order, people, spirituality, and value

Broadly speaking, I learned to recognize sin as the refusal to live up to the enlightenment we possess: to know the right order of values and deliberately to choose the lower ones: to know that, however much these values may differ with different people at different stages of spiritual growth, for one's self there must be no compromise with that which one knows to be the lower value.
