Quotes about youth:


Quote
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!”

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - Faust: A Tragedy
