A boy's story is the best that is ever told.
A hundred things are done today in the divine name of Youth, that if they showed their true colors would be seen by rights to belong rather to old age.
A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age.
A sensual and intemperate youth translates into an old worn-out body.
A youth with his first cigar makes himself sick; a youth with his first girl makes everybody sick.
After all, life hasn't much to offer except youth and I suppose for older people the love of youth in others.
All lovely things will have an ending, All lovely things will fade and die; And youth, that's now so bravely spending, Will beg a penny by and by.
As I approve of a youth that has something of the old man in him, so I am no less pleased with an old man that has something of the youth. He that follows this rule may be old in body, but can never be so in mind.
As youth lives in the future, so the adult lives in the past: No one rightly knows how to live in the present.
Ask the young. They know everything.
Blessed are the young for they shall inherit the national debt.
Childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day.
Do not commit the error common among the young, of assuming that if you cannot save the whole of mankind you have failed.
Do you set down your name in the scroll of youth, that are written down old with all the characters of age?
Don't laugh at youth for his affectations; he is only trying on one face after another to find his own.
Don't let young people tell you their aspirations; when they drop them they will drop you.
Enjoy the Spring of Love and Youth, to some good angel leave the rest; For Time will teach thee soon the truth, there are no birds in last year's nest!
Even the youngest of us may be wrong sometimes.
Every youth owes it to himself and to the world to make the most possible out of the stuff that is in him…
Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness.
