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.
      - The Self-Tormentor (act I, sc. 3),
        (F.W. Ricord's translation) [Youth]

Alas! three whole days to wait!
  [Lat., Heu! universum triduum.]
      - Works (II, 1, 17) [Time]
