We consider a sufficient condition for w(z), analytic in ${\mid}z{\mid}$ < 1, to be bounded in ${\mid}z{\mid}$ < 1, where $w(0)=w^{\prime}(0)=0$. We apply it to the meromorphic starlike functions. Also, a certain Briot-Bouquet differential subordination is considered. Moreover, we prove that if $p(z)+zp^{\prime}(z){\phi}(p(z)){\prec}h(z)$, then $p(z){\prec}h(z)$, where $h(z)=[(1+z)(1-z)]^{\alpha}$, under some additional assumptions on ${\phi}(z)$.
