Famous quotes containing the words young man, man and/or young:

    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)

    Time, which shows so vacant, indivisible, and divine in its coming, is slit and peddled into trifles and tatters. A door is to be painted, a lock to be repaired. I want wood, or oil, or meal, or salt; the house smokes, or I have a headache; then the tax; and an affair to be transacted with a man without heart or brains; and the stinging recollection of an injurious or very awkward word,—these eat up the hours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    For ourselves, we are too young for experience. Who is old enough?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
