Famous quotes containing the word young:

    To be young is to live in the hope of escaping youth; to be old, in the despair of having succeeded.
    José Bergamín (1895–1983)

    In spite of the roaring of the young lions at the Union, and the screaming of the rabbits in the home of the vivisector, in spite of Keble College, and the tramways, and the sporting prints, Oxford still remains the most beautiful thing in England, and nowhere else are life and art so exquisitely blended, so perfectly made one.
    Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

    There were those young men,
    those village lands
    and that youthfulness of mine.
    People tell it
    like a tale
    that I must listen to.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)
