Who is leontine young?

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

    When the manipulations of childhood are a little larceny, they may grow and change with the child into qualities useful and admire in the grown-up world. When they are the futile struggle for love and concern and protection, they may become the warped and ruthless machinations of adults who seek in the advantages of power what they could never win as children.
    Leontine Young (20th century)

    There was a young lady of Joppa
    Who came a society cropper.
    She went to Ostend
    With a gentleman friend—
    And the rest of the story’s improper.
