Young - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

The older golfer can hit the ball as far as the young one. He chips and putts equally well. And will probably have a better knowledge of the course. So why does he take the extra stroke that denies him victory? Experience. He knows the downside, what happens if it goes wrong, which makes him more cautious. The young player is either ignorant or reckless to caution. That is his edge. It is the same with all of us. Knowledge makes us play safe. The secret is to stay childish.

Paul Arden

You can never pinpoint the exact moment that a species came to be, because it never did. Just like how you used to be a baby and now you're older, but there was no single day when you went to bed young and woke up old. (...) There was no first human. It sounds like a paradox, it sounds like it breaks the whole theory of evolution, but it's really a key to truly understanding how evolution works. Evolution happens like a movie, with frames moving by both quickly and gradually, and we often can't see the change while it's occurring. Every time we find a fossil, it's a snapshot back in time, often with thousands of frames missing in between, and we're forced to reconstruct the whole film. Life is what happens in between the snapshots. Instead of a nice smooth road this is a journey on stepping stones and we give each one their own name.

Joe Hanson

My young son asked me what happens after we die. I told him we get buried under a bunch of dirt and worms eat our bodies. I guess I should have told him the truth - that most of us go to Hell and burn eternally - but I didn't want to upset him.

Jack Handey

I should wish to see a world in which education aimed at mental freedom rather than imprisoning the minds of the young in rigid armor of dogma calculated to protect them through life against the shafts of impartial evidence.

Bertrand Russell

The young reinvent the universe, [...] and they give the new universe to us as their gift.

Anne Rice

War is where the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other.

Grand Theft Auto

Once people are broken in certain ways, they can`t ever be fixed, and this is something nobody ever tells you when you are young and it never fails to surprise you as you grow older as you see the people in your life break one by one. You wonder when your turn is going to be, or if it`s already happened.

Douglas Coupland

Young people don`t always do what they`re told, but if they can pull it off and do something wonderful, sometimes they escape punishment.

Rick Riordan

Solitude [...] is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.

Albert Einstein

Everyone thinks you make mistakes when you`re young. [...] But I don`t think we make any fewer when we`re grown up.

Jodi Picoult

Parents of young children should realize that few people, and maybe no one, will find their children as enchanting as they do.
