Age may have one side, but assuredly Youth has the other. There is nothing more certain than that both are right, except perhaps that both are wrong.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson, Crabbed Age

For God's sake give me the young man who has brains enough to make a fool of himself.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson, Crabbed Age

Youth is wholly experimental.
      - Robert Louis Stevenson,
        To a Young Gentleman

Youth should be a savings-bank.
      - Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine (Soimonoff)

Secure their religion; season their younger years with prudent and pious principles.
      - Jeremy Taylor

What is that to him that reaps not harvest of his youthful joys,
  Though the deep heart of existence best forever like a boy's?
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, Locksley Hall
         (st. 70)

What unjust judges fathers are, when in regard to us they hold
  That even in our boyish days we ought in conduct to be old,
    Nor taste at all the very things that youth and only youth requires;
      They rule us by their present wants not by their past long-lost desires.
      - Terence (Publius Terentius Afer),
        The Self-Tormentor (act I, sc. 3),
        (F.W. Ricord's translation)

Shall not a man have his spring as well as the plants?
      - Henry David Thoreau

The youth gets together his materials to build a bridge to the moon, or, perchance, a palace or temple on the earth, and, at length, the middle-aged man concludes to build a woodshed with them.
      - Henry David Thoreau

The next, keep under Sir Hobbard de Hoy:
  The next, a man, no longer a boy.
      - Thomas Tusser, Hundred Points of Husbandry

Who can blame me if I cherish the belief that the world is still young,--that there are great possibilities in store for it?
      - John Tyndall

Among all the accomplishments of youth there is none preferable to a decent and agreeable behavior among men, a modest freedom of speech, a soft and elegant manner of address, a graceful and lovely deportment, a cheerful gravity and good-humor, with a mind appearing ever serene under the ruffling accidents of human life.
      - Isaac Watts

I love the soul that dares tread the temptations of his years beneath his youthful feet.
      - Isaac Watts

The deepest definition of youth is life as yet untouched by tragedy.
      - Alfred North Whitehead

An inordinate passion for pleasure is the secret of remaining young.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

I am not young enough to know everything.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

To get back one's youth one has merely to repeat one's follies.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)

Young people need models, not critics.
      - John Wooden

To be young was very heaven!
      - William Wordsworth

A youth to whom was given
  So much of earth, so much of heaven.
      - William Wordsworth, Ruth

Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,
  But to be young was very Heaven!
      - William Wordsworth, The Prelude (bk. XI)

And made youth younger, taught life to live.
      - Edward Young

Youth is not rich in time; it may be poor;
  Part with it as with money, sparing; pay
    No moment but in purchase of its worth,
      And what it's worth, ask death-beds; they can tell.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 47)
