Youth quotes
Youth
1.

Habit with him was all the test of truth, it must be right: I've done it from my youth.

- Crabbe, George
2.

Reverence for age is a fair test of the vigour of youth; and, conversely, insolence towards the old and the past, whether in individuals or in nations, is a sign rather of weakness than of strength.

- Lecture on Westminster Abbey. 1874.
3.

Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.

- J. K. Rowling
4.

Nothing can be so amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.

- Sidney J. Harris
5.

Thou hast nor youth nor age, but, as it were, an after-dinner's sleep, dreaming on both.

- William Shakespeare
6.

Youth is not a question of years: one is young or old from birth.

- Barney, Natalie Clifford
7.

Keep true to the dreams of thy youth.

- Friedrich von Schiller
8.

In our extreme youth, in our most humiliating sorrow, we think we are alone. When we are older we find that others have suffered too.

- Moarny, Suzanne
9.

Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.

- George Bernard Shaw
10.

Is it merely a fancy that we are losing that love for Spring which among our old forefathers rose almost to worship? That the perpetual miracle of the budding leaves and the returning song-birds awakes no longer in us the astonishment which it awoke yearly among the dwellers in the old world, when the sun was a god who was sick to death each winter, and returned in spring to life, and health, and glory; when Freya, the goddess of youth and love, went forth over the earth while the flowers broke forth under her tread over the brown moors, and the birds welcomed her with song? To those simpler children of a simpler age winter and spring were the two great facts of existence; the symbols, the one of death, the other of life; and the battle between the two--the battle of the sun with darkness, of winter with spring, of death with life, of bereavement with love--lay at the root of all their myths and all their creeds. Surely a change has come over our fancies! The seasons are little to us now!

- Prose Idylls.
11.

What is youth except a man or a woman before it is ready or fit to be seen?

- Evelyn Waugh
12.

A man's liberal and conservative phases seem to follow each other in a succession of waves from the time he is born. Children are radicals. Youths are conservatives, with a dash of criminal negligence. Men in their prime are liberals (as long as their digestion keeps pace with their intellect). The middle aged run to shelter: they insure their life, draft a will, accumulate mementos and occasional tables, and hope for security. And then comes old age, which repeats childhood -- a time full of humors and sadness, but often full of courage and even prophecy.

- White, Elwyn Brooks
13.

I feel a kind of reverence for the first books of young authors. There is so much aspiration in them, so much audacious hope and trembling fear, so much of the heartís history, that all errors and shortcomings are for a while lost sight of in the amiable self assertion of youth.

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
14.

Youth, with swift feet, walks onward in the way; the land of joy lies all before his eyes.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
15.

Oxford is -- Oxford: not a mere receptacle for youth, like Cambridge. Perhaps it wants its inmates to love it rather than to love one another.

- Forster, Edward M.
16.

Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.

- Jameson, Anna
17.

There has never been a time when you and I have not existed, nor will there be a time when we will cease to exist. As the same person inhabits the body through childhood, youth, and old age, so too at the time of death he attains another body. The wise are not deluded by these changes.

- Bhagavad Gita
18.

For age is opportunity no less than youth itself, though in another dress, and as the evening twilight fades away, the sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
19.

Nine times out of ten it is over the Bridge of Sighs that we pass the narrow gulf from youth to manhood. That interval is usually marked by an ill placed or disappointed affection. We recover and we find ourselves a new being. The intellect has become hardened by the fire through which it has passed. The mind profits by the wrecks of every passion, and we may measure our road to wisdom by the sorrows we have undergone.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
20.

The memory should be specially taxed in youth, since it is then that it is strongest and most tenacious. But in choosing the things that should be committed to memory the utmost care and forethought must be exercised; as lessons well learnt in youth are never forgotten.

- Arthur Schopenhauer
