Famous quotes containing the word youth:

    Genius goes around the world in its youth incessantly apologizing for having large feet. What wonder that later in life it should be inclined to raise those feet too swiftly to fools and bores.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    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)

    Thou hast most traitorously corrupted the youth of the realm in erecting a grammar school.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
