Famous quotes containing the word youth:

    Where youth and diffidence are united, it requires uncommon steadiness of reason to resist the attraction of being called the most charming girl in the world.
    Jane Austen (1775–1817)

    If youth is the season of hope, it is often so only in the sense that our elders are hopeful about us; for no age is so apt as youth to think its emotions, partings, and resolves are the last of their kind. Each crisis seems final, simply because it is new.
    George Eliot [Mary Ann (or Marian)

    From you have I been absent in the spring,
    When proud pied April, dressed in all his trim,
    Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
    That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
