Youth, that pursuest with such eager pace
  Thy even way,
    Thou pantest on to win a mournful race:

        Pause and luxuriate in thy sunny plain;
            Once past, thou never wilt come back again,
              A second Boy.
      - Richard Monckton Milnes, Lord Houghton,
        Carpe Diem

'Tis now the summer of your youth: time has not cropped the roses from your cheek, though sorrow long has washed them.

The smiles, the tears
  Of boyhood's years,
    The words of love then spoken.
      - Thomas Moore, Oft in the Stilly Night

Oh! the joy
  Of young ideas painted on the mind,
    In the warm glowing colors fancy spreads
      On objects not yet known, when all is new,
        And all is lovely.
      - Hannah More

How different from the present man was the youth of earlier days!
  [Lat., Dissimiles hic vir, et ille puer.]

        Boswell's Life of Johnson, to Walpole

A youth of frolic, an old age of cards.
      - Alexander Pope

When the brisk minor pants for twenty-one.

We think our fathers fools, so wise we grow;
  Our wiser sons, no doubt, will think us so.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Criticism
         (pt. II, l. 438)

If youth but knew, and age were able,
  Then poverty would be a fable.

Of a young hermit, an old devil.
