Youth Quotes


In one of his many youth quotes, George Bernard Shaw mused, "Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children." But as we grow older we start to realize that youth isn't a state connected to the passage of time, but one connected to a feeling of timelessness. We may grow old, but we don't necessarily have to grow up. Sophia Loren perhaps said it best in one of her youth quotes: "There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age." Reference.com Definition of Youth

C.S. Lewis

"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for a bird to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad." C.S. Lewis
The Complete C. S. Lewis Signature Classics (2007) pg. 158 Written in Lewis's book, "Mere Christianity," this quote shows his strong belief in the divine potential of man. Add Category or Author

 Aristotle

"They [Young People] have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great things -- and that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning -- all their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything -- they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else." Aristotle
