Youth Quotes

Luxury! More perilous to youth than storms or quicksand, poverty or chains.

Hannah More

Rashness belongs to youth; prudence to old age.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

The true lover of learning then must his earliest youth, as far as in him lies, desire all truth. . .He whose desires are drawn toward knowledge in every form will be absorbed in the pleasures of the soul, and will hardly feel bodily pleasures- -I mean, if he be a true philosopher and not a sham one. . .Then how can he who has the magnificence of mind and is the spectator of all times and all existence, think much of human life? He cannot. Or can such a one account death fearful? No indeed.

Plato

Smiling always with a never fading serenity of countenance, and flourishing in an immortal youth.

John Adams

All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth.

Aristotle

When parents put gold into the hands of youth, when they should put a rod under their girdle--when instead of awe they make them past grace, and leave them rich executors of goods, and poor executors of godliness, then it is no marvel that the son being left rich by his father's will, becomes reckless by his own will.

John Lyly

England or the Great Britain as it is known more popularly is a land which has for long been a home to people belonging to a number of different cultures and races. The tolerance that it has for different people is in itself immense. Today it also holds the position of the financial capital of the world and is also a part of the European Union. It has for long been a colonial power which has ruled over many nations. It is home for the famous Queen Elizabeth and her descendants. With splendid country sides and cold weather, it is a very much sought after destination by the youth of the Asian countries.In spite of their hats being very ugly, Goddam! I love the English.

Bertrand Barere

Happy is he who has laid up in his youth, and held fast in all fortune, a genuine and passionate love of reading.

Rufus Choate

The real stumbling-block of totalitarian regimes is not the spiritual need of men for freedom of thought; it is men's inability to stand the physical and nervous strain of a permanent state of excitement, except during a few years of their youth.

Simone Weil

The prejudices of youth pass away with it. Those of old age last only because there is no other age to be hoped for.

Leszczynski Stanislaus

So lifeís year begins and closes; Days though shortening still can shine; What though youth gave love and roses; Age still leaves us friends and wine.

Thomas Moore

It sloweth age, it strengtheneth youth, it helpeth digestion, it abandoneth melancholie, it relisheth the heart, it lighteneth the mind, it quickenth the spirits, it keepeth and preserveth the head from whirling, the eyes from dazzling, the tongue from lisping, the mouth from snaffling, the teeth from chattering and the throat from rattling; it keepeth the stomach from wambling, the heart from swelling, the hands from shivering, the sinews from shrinking, the veins from crumbling, the bones from aching,and the marrow from soaking.

Robert Noecker

Golf: A game in which you claim the privileges of age and retain the playthings of youth

Samuel Johnson

What though youth gave love and roses age still leaves us friends and wine

Thomas Moore

These laid the world away; poured out the red Sweet wine of youth; gave up the years to be Of work and joy, and that unhoped serene, That men call age; and those who would have been, Their sons, they gave, their immortality.

Rupert Brooke

For I have learned To look on the nature, not as in the hour Of thoughtless youth; but hearing oftentimes The still, sad music of humanity, Nor harsh nor grating, though of ample power To chasten and subdue. And I have felt A presence that disturbs me with the joy Of elevated thoughts; a sense of sublime Of something far more deeply infused, Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns, And the round ocean and the living air, And the blue sky, and in the minds of man: A motion and a spirit, that impels All living things, all objects of all thought, And rolls through all things. Therefore am I still A lover of the meadows and the woods And mountains, and of all that we behold From this green earth, of all the mighty world Of eye, and ear -- both what they half create, And what they perceive, will be pleased to recognize In nature and the Language of the sense The anchor of my purest thoughts, the nurse, The guide, the guardian of my heart and soul Of all my moral being.

William Wordsworth

Fell luxury! more perilous to youth Than storms or quicksands, poverty of chains.

The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.
