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

    It seems just possible that a poem might happen
    To a very young man: but a poem is not poetry—
    That is a life.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    A man cannot wheedle nor overawe his Genius. It requires to be conciliated by nobler conduct than the world demands or can appreciate.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    I am absolutely sure that a lot of Daddy anger has more to do with unrealized dreams than with messy rooms. Trust me. You’re not really angry at your kids. You’re angry at somebody else, somebody who is a far less distinguished person than he dreamed of being.
    Hugh O’Neill (20th century)

    There are two kinds of men, and only two, and that young man is one kind. He is high-minded, he is pure, he’s the kind of man that the world pretends to look up to, and in fact despises. He is
    the kind of man who breeds unhappiness, particularly in women.
    Robert Bolt (1924–1995)
