Youth Quotes

In youth we feel richer for every new illusion; in maturer years, for every one we lose.

Madame Anne Sophie

It is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those who have lost it; but the young know they are wretched for they are full of the truthless ideal which have been instilled into them, and each time they come in contact with the real, they are bruised and wounded

W Somerset Maugham

Youth enters the world with very happy prejudices in her own favor. She imagines herself not only certain of accomplishing every adventure, but of obtaining those rewards which the accomplishment may deserve. She is not easily persuaded to believe that the force of merit can be resisted by obstinacy and avarice, or its luster darkened by envy and malignity.

Samuel Johnson

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.

Isaac Barrow

A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and melancholy prospects of decay, it would give us hopes of eternal youth in a better world.

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.

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.
