Deal mildly with his youth; for young hot colts, being raged, do rage the more.
      - William Shakespeare

For youth no less becomes
  The light and careless livery that it wears,
    Than settled age his sables, and his weeds
      Importing health and graveness.
      - William Shakespeare

He wears the rose of youth upon him.
      - William Shakespeare

We have some salt of our youth in us.
      - William Shakespeare

The spirit of a youth
  That means to be of note, begins betimes.
      - William Shakespeare, Anthony and Cleopatra

My salad days,
  When I was green in judgment, cold in blood,
    To say as I said then.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Cleopatra at I, v)

This morning, like the spirit of a youth
  That means to be of note, begins betimes.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Antony at IV, iv)

The chariest maid is prodigal enough
  If she unmask her beauty to the moon.
    Virtue itself scapes not calumnious strokes.
      The canker galls the infants of the spring
        Too oft before their buttons be disclosed,
          And in the morn and liquid dew of youth
            Contagious blastments are most imminent.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Laertes at I, iii)

A very riband in the cap of youth,
  Yet needful too, for youth no less becomes
    The light and careless livery that it wears
      Than settled age his sables and his weeds,
        Importing health and graveness.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Claudius, King of Denmark at IV, vii)

For though the camomile, the more it is trodden on the faster it grows, yet youth, the more it is wasted, the sooner it wears.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Falstaff at II, iv)

He that hath a beard is more than a youth, and he that hath no beard is less than a man; and he that is more than a youth is not for me; and he that is less than a man, I am not for him.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Beatrice at II, i)

Thou art thy mother's glass, and she in thee
  Calls back the lovely April of her prime;
    So thou through windows of thine age shalt see,
      Despite of wrinkles, this thy golden time.
      - William Shakespeare, Sonnet III (l. 9)

Awake remembrance of these valiant dead,
  And with your puissant arm renew their feats.
    You are their heir; you sit upon their throne;
      The blood and courage that renowned them
        Runs in your veins; and my thrice-puissant liege
          Is in the very May-morn of his youth,
            Ripe for exploits and mighty enterprises.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Fifth
         (Ely at I, ii)

Crabbed age and youth cannot live together;
  Youth is full of pleasance, age is full of care;
    Youth like summer morn, age like winter weather;
      Youth like summer brave, age like winter bare.
        Youth is full of sport, age's breadth is short;
          Youth is nimble, age is lame;
            Youth is hot and bold, age is weak and cold;
              Youth is wild, and age is tame.
                Age, I do abhor thee; youth, I do adore thee.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Passionate Pilgrim (XII, l. 1)

The younger generation is knocking at the door, and as I open it there steps spritely in the incomparable Max.
      - George Bernard Shaw,
        in the "Saturday Review" on handing the theatre review to Max Beerbohm

Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.
      - George Bernard Shaw

It's all that the young can do for the old, to shock them and keep them up to date.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Fanny's First Play

All of as who are worth anything spend our manhood in unlearning the follies or expiating the mistakes of our youth.
      - Percy Bysshe Shelley

The humor of youth, which thinks that good whose goodness it sees not.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

The denunciation of the young is a necessary part of the hygiene of older people, and greatly assists the circulation of their blood.
      - Logan Pearsall Smith

Hail, blooming Youth!
  May all your virtues with your years improve,
    Till in consummate worth you shine the pride
      Of these our days, and succeeding times
        A bright example.
      - William C. Somerville, The Chase
         (bk. III, l. 389)

I can remember, with unsteady feet,
  Tottering from room to room, and finding pleasure
    In flowers, and toys, and sweetmeats, things which long
      Have lost their power to please; which when I see them,
        Raise only now a melancholy wish
          I were the little trifler once again,
            Who could be pleas'd so lightly.
      - Robert Southey

Live as long as you may, the first twenty years are the longest half of your life.
      - Robert Southey

I am young. I am not ready for supreme power.
      - Prince Ernst Rudiger von Starhemberg

It is not easy to surround life with any circumstances in which youth will not be delightful; and I am afraid that, whether married or unmarried, we shall find the vesture of terrestrial existence more heavy and cumbrous the longer it is worn.
      - Sir Richard Steele
