agree  Jim Tucker: nice play on the academic "publish or perish" - not sure how to interpret the "und" but I do know Nemerov has a poem about academics in which he says of one, "he publishes and perishes at once."

agree  Sarah Downing: I like this, particularly because of the assonance. I also thought of "grow or go", but I reckon yours is better.
