Famous quotes containing the word years:

    Today so much rebellion is aimless and demoralizing precisely because children have no values to challenge. Teenage rebellion is a testing process in which young people try out various values in order to make them their own. But during those years of trial, error, embarrassment, a child needs family standards to fall back on, reliable habits of thought and feeling that provide security and protection.
    Neil Kurshan (20th century)

    Let us love nobly, and live, and add again
    Years and years unto years, till we attain
    To write threescore: this is the second of our reign.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    The time passes so quickly during these full and active middle years that most people arrive at the end of middle age and the beginning of later maturity with surprise and a sense of having finished the journey while they were still preparing to commence it.
    Robert Havighurst (20th century)
