Growth generally corresponds to increase in size or dimensions of living thing. Growth corresponds to physical growth, primarily. There are several stages in the life cycle of a human being, animals or plants. Growth involves timely transition from one stage to the next, in any existing life cycle in the environment. Human beings grow from babies into children, then teenagers, eventually being followed by adults. In human beings, growth has another aspect i.e. the intellectual or mental growth.
Intellectual growth starts from birth and ceases at death. There are no limits to growth since there are no limits to human imagination, wonder and intelligence. People around you also influence your growth. In this context Plato had once remarked, “Every child growing up will look to their parents, my mother and my father. My grandmother lived with us. I picked up quite a bit of family lore and history from her, which was interesting.”
