Famous quotes containing the word young:

    If there is anything I really fear it is the mind of a young girl.
    Jane Heap (c. 1880–1964)

    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)

    I never feel so conscious of my race as I do when I stand before a class of twenty-five young men and women eager to learn about what it is to be black in America.
    Claire Oberon Garcia, African American college professor. As quoted in the Chronicle of Higher Education, p. B3 (July 27, 1994)
