Quotes

Quotes about youth:


I nothing had, and yet enough for youth -
Joy in Illusion, ardent thirst for Truth.
Give unrestrained, the old emotion,
The bliss that touched the verge of pain,
The strength of Hate, Love's deep devotion, -
O, give me back my youth again!






The storms of youth occur between days of brilliant sunshine.





It takes a long time to become young.





Youth has no age.





Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.





Youth must be mastered not by force but by reason.
