Youth dreams a bliss on this side of death. It dreams a rest, if not more deep, More grateful than this marble sleep; It hears a voice within it tell: Calm’s not life’s crown, though calm is well. ‘Tis all perhaps which man acquires, But ’tis not what our youth desires.

~~~~~~~

Youth enters the world with very happy prejudices in her own favor.

~~~~~~~

Youth is life’s beautiful moment.

~~~~~~~

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life.

~~~~~~~

Youth is not like a new garment which we can keep fresh and fair by wearing sparingly. Youth, while we have it, we must wear daily; and it will fast wear away.

~~~~~~~

Youth is not rich in time; it may be poor; Part with it as with money, sparing; pay No moment but in purchase of its worth, And what it’s worth, ask death-beds; they can tell.

~~~~~~~

Youth is not the era of wisdom; let us therefore have due consideration.

~~~~~~~

Youth is something very new: twenty years ago no one mentioned it.

~~~~~~~

Youth is the time to go flashing from one end of the world to the other to try the manners of different nations; to hear the chimes at midnight; to see the sunrise in town and country; to be converted at a revival; to circumnavigate the metaphysics, write halting verses, run a mile to see a fire, and wait all day long in the theatre to applaud Hernani.

~~~~~~~

Youth is the trustee of prosperity.

~~~~~~~

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.

Youth! There is nothing like youth. The middle-aged are mortgaged to Life. The old are in Life’s lumber-room. But youth is the Lord of Life. Youth has a kingdom waiting for it. Every one is born a king, and most people die in exile.

~~~~~~~

Youth! youth! how buoyant are thy hopes! they turn, Like marigolds, toward the sunny side.

~~~~~~~

Youth, abundant wealth, high birth, and inexperience, are, each of them a source of ruin. What then must be the fate of those in whom all four are combined.

~~~~~~~

Youth, enthusiasm, and tenderness are like the days of spring. Instead of complaining, O my heart, of their brief duration, try to enjoy them.

When I was younger, the great excitement of pursuing women was the sense of seduction and romance and chase.

~~~~~~~

When the brisk minor pants for twenty-one.

~~~~~~~

Young fellows will be young fellows.

~~~~~~~

Young men soon give and soon forget affronts; Old age is slow in both.

~~~~~~~

Young people are fitter to invent than to judge; fitter for execution than for counsel; and more fit for new projects than for settled business.

~~~~~~~

Young people need models, not critics…

~~~~~~~

Youth does not require reasons for living, it only needs pretexts.

~~~~~~~

We are none of us infallible–not even the youngest of us.

~~~~~~~

We have some salt of our youth in us.

There is nothing can equal the tender hours When life is first in bloom, When the heart like a bee, in a wild of flowers, Finds everywhere perfume; When the present is all and it questions not If those flowers shall pass away, But pleased with its own delightful lot, Dreams never of decay.

~~~~~~~

They [Young People] have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things — and that means having exalted notions.

They overdo everything — they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else.

~~~~~~~

To be young is all there is in the world. They talk so beautifully about work and having a family and a home (and I do, too, sometimes) –but it’s all worry and head-aches and respectable poverty and forced gushing. Telling people how nice it is, when, in reality, you would give all of your last thirty years for one of your first thirty. Old people are tremendous frauds.

To be young is surely the best, if the most precarious, gift of life.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

Towering in confidence at twenty-one.

The hatred of the youth culture for adult society is not a disinterested judgment but a terror-ridden refusal to be hooked into the, if you will, ecological chain of breathing, growing, and dying. It is the demand, in other words, to remain children.

The heart of youth is reached through the senses; the senses of age are reached through the heart.

~~~~~~~

That exuberant age when all fresh fancies are fevers.

~~~~~~~

The arrogance of age must submit to be taught by youth.

~~~~~~~

The arrogance of the young is a direct result of not having known enough consequences. The turkey that every day greedily approaches the farmer who tosses him grain is not wrong. It is just that no one ever told him about Thanksgiving.

~~~~~~~

The chariest maid is prodigal enough If she unmask her beauty to the moon. Virtue itself scapes not calumnious strokes. The canker galls the infants of the spring Too oft before their buttons be disclosed, And in the morn and liquid dew of youth Contagious blastments are most imminent.

The chief recommendation [in a young man] is modesty, then dutiful conduct toward parents, then affection for kindred. [Lat., Prima commendiato proficiscitur a modestia tum pietate in parentes, tum in suos benevolentia.]

All who have passed the age of thirty are joyless grotesques, endlessly fussing about things of no importance and staying alive without, so far as the child can see, having anything to live for. Only child life is real life.

~~~~~~~

The desire of advising has a very extensive prevalence; and, since advice cannot be given but to those that will hear it, a patient listener is necessary to the accommodation of all those who desire to be confirmed in the opinion of their own wisdom: a patient listener, however, is not always to be had; the present age, whatever age is present, is so vitiated and disordered, that young people are readier to talk than to attend, and good counsel is only thrown away upon those who are full of their own perfections.

~~~~~~~

The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.

Lets tell young people the best books are yet to written; the best painting, the best government the best of everything is yet to be done by them. (Maslow Abraham H.)

~~~~~~~

Oh! the joy Of young ideas painted on the mind, In the warm glowing colors fancy spreads On objects not yet known, when all is new, And all is lovely.

~~~~~~~

Our youth we can have but to-day; We may always find time to grow old.

~~~~~~~

Over the trackless past, somewhere, Lie the lost days of our tropic youth, Only regained by faith and prayer, Only recalled by prayer and plaint, Each lost day has its patron saint!

~~~~~~~

Praise youth and it will prosper.

~~~~~~~

Puberty was very vague. I literally locked myself in a room and played guitar.

~~~~~~~

Rash, inexperienced youth holds itself a chosen instrument, and allows itself unbounded license.

Let us fill a cup and drink to that most noble, ridiculous, laughable, sublime figure in our lives…The Young Man Who Was. Let us drink to his dreams, for they were rainbow-colored; to his appetites, for they were strong; to his blunders, for they were huge; to his pains for they were sharp; to his time for it was brief; and to his end, for it was to become one of us.
