Who is leontine young?

Famous quotes containing the words leontine young and/or young:

    Unfortunately the laughter of adults too often carries to the ears of the young the ring of ridicule, that annihilating enemy of human dignity.

    that Sunday in July
    when we were young and did not look
    into the abyss,
    that God spot.
