Young Lions Cup

Famous quotes containing the words young, lions and/or cup:

    There’ll be that crowd, that barbarous crowd, through all the centuries,
    And who can say but some young belle may walk and talk men wild
    Who is my beauty’s equal, though that my heart denies,
    But not the exact likeness, the simplicity of a child,
    And that proud look as though she had gazed into the burning sun....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    No stout
    Lesson showed how to chat with death. We brought
    No brass fortissimo, among our talents,
    To holler down the lions in this air.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man: wine is not so noble a liquor; and think of dashing the hopes of a morning with a cup of warm coffee, or of an evening with a dish of tea! Ah, how low I fall when I am tempted by them! Even music may be intoxicating. Such apparently slight causes destroyed Greece and Rome, and will destroy England and America.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
