Famous quotes containing the word young:

    Too many existing classrooms for young children have this overriding goal: To get the children ready for first grade. This goal is unworthy. It is hurtful. This goal has had the most distorting impact on five-year-olds. It causes kindergartens to be merely the handmaidens of first grade.... Kindergarten teachers cannot look at their own children and plan for their present needs as five-year-olds.
    James L. Hymes, Jr. (20th century)

    Nowadays people’s visual imagination is so much more sophisticated, so much more developed, particularly in young people, that now you can make an image which just slightly suggests something, they can make of it what they will.
    Robert Doisneau (b. 1912)

    “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)
