Youth

Found 20 thoughts of youth

Any man who is under 30, and is not a liberal, has not heart; and any man who is over 30, and is not a conservative, has no brains.

Winston Churchill

We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

The dead might as well try to speak to the living as the old to the young.

Willa Cather

The young know how truly difficult and dreadful youth can be. Their youth is wasted on everyone else, that's the horror. The young have no authority, no respect.

Anne Rice

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

It is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those who have lost it; but the young know they are wretched for they are full of the truthless ideal which have been instilled into them, and each time they come in contact with the real, they are bruised and wounded.

W. Somerset Maugham

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

Logan Pearsall Smith

Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.

George Bernard Shaw

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Youth, which is forgiven everything, forgives itself nothing: age, which forgives itself everything, is forgiven nothing.

George Bernard Shaw

Age is foolish and forgetful when it underestimates youth.

J. K. Rowling

Nothing can be so amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.

Sidney J. Harris

Boyhood, like measles, is one of those complaints which a man should catch young and have done with, for when it comes in middle life it is apt to be serious.

P. G. Wodehouse

We have some salt of our youth in us.

William Shakespeare

The secret of eternal youth is arrested development.

Alice Roosevelt Longworth

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

W. H. Thompson

What a mistake to suppose that the passions are strongest in youth! The passions are not stronger, but the control over them is weaker! They are more easily excited, they are more violent and apparent; but they have less energy, less durability, less intense and concentrated power than in the maturer life.

Edward Bulwer-Lytton

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

Herbert Henry Asquith

If youth only knew: if age only could.

Henri Estienne

I enjoy hanging around energetic, effervescent young men and women because they have yet to learn how to spell the word "LIFE"......P_A_I_N
