Youth quotes
When I was young I was amazed at Plutarch's statement that the elder Cato began at the age of eighty to learn Greek. I am amazed no longer. Old age is ready to undertake tasks that youth shirked because they would take too long.

- W. Somerset Maugham
Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth; and let thy heart cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine heart, and in the sight of thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment. [Ecclesiastes 11:9]

- Bible
In youth we run into difficulties. In old age difficulties run into us.

- Billings, Josh
Well, youth is the period of assumed personalities and disguises. It is the time of the sincerely insincere.

- Pritchett, V. S.
Sometimes the joys of our youth do not translate to joys in adulthood and itĘs hard to release them.

- Laura Moncur
To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable.

- Oscar Wilde
The American ideal is youth --handsome, empty youth.

- Miller, Henry
Even the youngest of us may be wrong sometimes.

- Shaw, George Bernard
In youth one has tears without grief, in old age grief without tears.

- Paul, Jean
Settle it in your minds, young people, that the first and the last of all virtues and graces which God can give is Self-Control, as necessary for the saint and the sage lest they become fanatics and pedants, as for the young in the hey-day of youth and health.

- Sermons on David. 1866.
Youth troubles over eternity, age grasps at a day and is satisfied to have even the day.

- Gilmore, Dame Mary
There's something amazing about the passion of youth and its power to sustain. If there's a more powerful energy source, I don't know about it.

- Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata
Old age is a tyrant, who forbids, under pain of death, the pleasures of youth.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Aging is not'lost youth'but a new stage of opportunity and strength.

- Betty Friedan
There are those who consider--and I agree with them--that the education of boys under the age of twelve years ought to be entrusted, as much as possible, to women. Let me ask--of what period of youth and manhood does it not hold true? I pity the ignorance and conceit of the man who fancies that he has nothing left to learn from cultivated women. I should have thought that the very mission of woman was to be, in the highest sense, the educator of man, from infancy to old age; that that was the work towards which all the God-given capacities of women pointed.

- Lecture on Thrift. 1869.
People have this obsession. They want you to be like you were in 1969. They want you to, because otherwise their youth goes with you. It's very selfish, but it's understandable.

- Jagger, Mick
I've never understood why people consider youth a time of freedom and joy. It's probably because they have forgotten their own.

- Atwood, Margaret
Women, like men, ought to have their youth so glutted with freedom they hate the very idea of freedom.

- Sackville-West, Vita
MACROBIAN, n. One forgotten of the gods and living to a great age. History is abundantly supplied with examples, from Methuselah to Old Parr, but some notable instances of longevity are less well known. A Calabrian peasant named Coloni, born in 1753, lived so long that he had what he considered a glimpse of the dawn of universal peace. Scanavius relates that he knew an archbishop who was so old that he could remember a time when he did not deserve hanging. In 1566 a linen draper of Bristol, England, declared that he had lived five hundred years, and that in all that time he had never told a lie. There are instances of longevity (_macrobiosis_) in our own country. Senator Chauncey Depew is old enough to know better. The editor of _The American_, a newspaper in New York City, has a memory that goes back to the time when he was a rascal, but not to the fact. The President of the United States was born so long ago that many of the friends of his youth have risen to high political and military preferment without the assistance of personal merit. The verses following were written by a macrobian: When I was young the world was fair And amiable and sunny. A brightness was in all the air, In all the waters, honey. The jokes were fine and funny, The statesmen honest in their views, And in their lives, as well, And when you heard a bit of news 'Twas true enough to tell. Men were not ranting, shouting, reeking, Nor women "generally speaking." The Summer then was long indeed: It lasted one whole season! The sparkling Winter gave no heed When ordered by Unreason To bring the early peas on. Now, where the dickens is the sense In calling that a year Which does no more than just commence Before the end is near? When I was young the year extended From month to month until it ended. I know not why the world has changed To something dark and dreary, And everything is now arranged To make a fellow weary. The Weather Man -- I fear he Has much to do with it, for, sure, The air is not the same: It chokes you when it is impure, When pure it makes you lame. With windows closed you are asthmatic; Open, neuralgic or sciatic.

- Ambrose Bierce
Some men are born old, and some men never seem so. If we keep well and cheerful, we are always young and at last die in youth even when in years would count as old.

- Edwards, Tryon
