Famous quotes containing the word young:

    Bagehot did what so many thousand of young graduates before him had done,—he studied for the bar; and then, having prepared himself to practise law, followed another large body of young men in deciding to abandon it.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    The first wrote, Wine is the strongest. The second wrote, The king is strongest. The third wrote, Women are strongest: but above all things Truth beareth away the victory.
    Apocrypha. 1 Esdras, 3:10-12.

    Referring to “three young men” of the bodyguard of Darius, king of the Persians, competing for his favor.

    Extemporaneous speaking should be practised and cultivated. It is the lawyer’s avenue to the public.... And yet there is not a more fatal error to young lawyers than relying too much on speechmaking. If any one, upon his rare powers of speaking, shall claim an exemption from the drudgery of the law, his case is a failure in advance.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
