Famous quotes containing the word young:

    Play for young children is not recreation activity,... It is not leisure-time activity nor escape activity.... Play is thinking time for young children. It is language time. Problem-solving time. It is memory time, planning time, investigating time. It is organization-of-ideas time, when the young child uses his mind and body and his social skills and all his powers in response to the stimuli he has met.
    James L. Hymes, Jr. (20th century)

    We felt often that we were perceived as mothers trying to be lawyers, while a male colleague of ours who had a young child was perceived as a lawyer who also happened to be a father.
    Anne C. Weisberg (20th century)

    I tell you old and young are better than tired middle-aged, nothing is so dead dead-tired, dead every way as middle-aged.
    Gertrude Stein (1874–1946)
