There is a place in God's sun for the youth 'farthest down' who has the vision, the determination, and the courage to reach it
The love we have in our youth is superficial compared to the love that an old man has for his old wife.
Youth is full of sport, age's breath is short; youth is nimble, age is lame; Youth is hot and bold, age is weak and cold; Youth is wild, and age is tame.
All of us who are worth anything, spend our manhood in unlearning the follies, or expiating the mistakes of our youth
There was no respect for youth when I was young, and now that I am old, there is no respect for age - I missed it coming and going.
Time, the subtle thief of youth
Just at the age 'twixt boy and youth, When thought is speech, and speech is truth
Youth is a silly, vapid state, Old age with fears and ills is rife; This simple boon I beg of Fate - A thousand years of Middle Life
The excess of our youth are checks written against our age and they are payable with interest thirty years later
Youth is a religion from which one always ends up being converted
Middle age is youth without levity, and age without decay.
I would like to recapture that freshness of vision which is characteristic of extreme youth when all the world is new to it.
What Youth deemed crystal, Age finds out was dew
Age is opportunity no less than youth itself.
Memory in youth is active and easily impressible; in old age it is comparatively callous to new impressions, but still retains vividly those of earlier years

Youth is too tumultuous for felicity; old age too insecure for happiness. The period most favorable to enjoyment, in a vigorous, fortunate, and generous life, is that between forty and sixty.
A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age.
It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth
Too chaste a youth leads to a dissolute old age
What is youth except a man or woman before it is ready or fit to be seen?
Everyone believes in his youth that the world really began with him, and that all merely exists for his sake
Youth is to all the glad season of life; but often only by what it hopes, not by what it attains, or what it escapes.
It is youth that has discovered love as a weapon
Youth is the best time to be rich; and the best time to be poor
