Who is leontine young?

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

    The smaller the person, the less we worry about his dignity. Sometimes we even find the idea a little ludicrous as if smallness and inexperience were incompatible with anything so majestic as human dignity....Yet children have a great sense of their own dignity. They couldn’t define what it is but they know when it has been violated.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    A young person is a person with nothing to learn
    One who already knows that ice does not chill and fire does not burn . . .
    It knows it can spend six hours in the sun on its first
    day at the beach without ending up a skinless beet,
    And it knows it can walk barefoot through the barn
    without running a nail in its feet. . . .
    Meanwhile psychologists grow rich
    Writing that the young are ones’ should not
    undermine the self-confidence of which.
    Ogden Nash (1902–1971)
