Boys

Famous quotes containing the word boys:

    By school age, many boys experience pressure to reveal inner feelings as humiliating. They think their mothers are saying to them, “You must be hiding something shameful.” And shucking clams is a snap compared to prying secrets out of a boy who’s decided to “clam up.”
    Ron Taffel (20th century)

    As flies to wanton boys are we to the gods,
    They kill us for their sport.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    All night in the unmade park
    After the railings and shrubberies
    The birds the grass the trees the lake
    And the wild boys innocent as strawberries
    Had followed the hunchback
    To his kennel in the dark.
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)
