Famous quotes containing the words man, angry and/or young:

    If originally it was not good for a man to be alone, it is much worse for a sick man to be so; he thinks too much of his distemper, and magnifies it.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)

    For both parties, the most disagreeable way of responding to a polemic is to be angry and keep silent: for the aggressor usually takes the silence as a sign of disdain.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    “Oh, where have you been, Billy boy, Billy boy?
    Oh, where have you been, charming Billy?”
    “I’ve been to seek a wife,
    She’s the joy of my life,
    She’s a young thing, and cannot leave her mother.”
    Unknown. Billy Boy (l. 1–5)
