Quotes for: youth


Quotes about youth:

The storms of youth occur between days of brilliant sunshine.

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!

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.

Go, nothing is better for the soul
Than to dispel some sadness from a soul!

They change the sky, not their soul, who run across the sea.

Nature is not only all that is visible to the eye... it also includes the inner pictures of the soul.

Time is a great master; it regulates things well.

Learn to know yourself, and descend into yourself.

In the happiness of others I seek my own.

Every man of courage is a man of his word.

He who controls himself once can always control himself.
