Henri Estienne

Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life.
Herbert Henry Asquith

On the neck of a young man sparkles no gem so gracious as enterprise.

Lawana Blackwell

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

Don't laugh at a youth for his affectations; he is only trying on one face after another to find his own.

Life went a-Maying With Nature, Hope, and Poesy; When I was young! When I was young?--Ah, woful when!
