Famous quotes containing the word young:

    Obedient daily dress,
    You cannot always keep
    That unfakable young surface.
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    I feel a kind of reverence for the first books of young authors. There is so much aspiration in them, so much audacious hope and trembling fear, so much of the heart’s history, that all errors and shortcomings are for a while lost sight of in the amiable self assertion of youth.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807–1882)
