Youth is to all the glad reason of life; but often only by what it hopes, not by what it attains, or what it escapes.

      - Phoebe Cary

It is so beautiful to die young!
      - Andre Marie de Chenier

Young men are apt to think themselves wise enough, as drunken men are to think themselves sober enough.
      - 4th Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope

I do not now so much as wish to have the Strength of Youth again that I wish'd in Youth for the Strength of an Ox or Elephant. For it is our Business only to make the best Use we can of the Powers granted us by Nature.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

It is a truth but too well known, that rashness attends youth, as prudence does old age.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short)

As I approve of a youth that has something of the old man in him, so I am no less pleased with an old man that has something of the youth. He that follows this rule may be old in body, but can never be so in mind.
      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        Cato; or, An Essay on Old Age

      - Cicero (Marcus Tullius Cicero) (often called "Tully" for short),
        De Officiis (II, 13)

Alas! the slippery nature of tender youth.
  [Lat., Teneris, heu, lubrica moribus aetas!]
      - Claudian (Claudianus),
        De Raptu Proserpinoe (III, 227)

Life went a-Maying
  With Nature, Hope, and Poesy;
    When I was young!
      When I was young?--Ah, woful when!
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Youth and Age

Always be nice to those younger than you, because they are the ones who will be writing about you.
      - Cyril Connolly

Youth is a period of missed opportunities.
      - Cyril Connolly

So live, that thy young and glowing breast can think of death without a sign.
      - Eliza Cook

I am young, it is true; but in noble souls valor does not wait for years.
      - Pierre Corneille

A young Apollo, golden haired,
  Stands dreaming on the verge of strife,
    Magnificently unprepared
      For the long littleness of life.
      - Mrs. Frances Macdonald Cornford,
        On Rupert Brooke

From thoughtless youth to ruminating age.
      - William Cowper

Be it a weakness, it deserves some praise,
  We love the play-place of our early days;
    The scene is touching, and the heart is stone,
      That feels not at that sight, and feels at none.
      - William Cowper, Tirocinium (l. 296)

Youth, what man's age is like to be, doth show;
  We may our ends by our beginnings know.
      - Sir John Denham, Of Prudence (l. 225)

To be famous when you are young is the fortune of the gods.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Youth should watch joys and shoot them as they fly.
      - John Dryden, Aureng-Zebe (act III, sc. 1)

In youth we learn; in age we understand.
      - Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach

The most aggravating thing about the younger generation is that I no longer belong to it.
      - Albert Einstein

The youth, intoxicated with his admiration of a hero, fails to see, that it is only a projection of his own soul, which he admires.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Youth is everywhere in place.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Olympian bards who sung
  Divine ideas below,
    Which always find us young
      And always keep us so.
