Youth comes but once in a lifetime. 8. LONGFELLOW-Hyperion. Bk. II. Ch. X.

Every street has two sides, the shady side and the sunny. When two men shake hands and part, mark which of the two takes the sunny side; he will be the younger man of the two.

t. BULWER-LYTTON- What Will He Do With It? Bk. II. Heading of Ch. XV.

Youth, that pursuest with such eager pace
Thy even way,

Thou pantest on to win a mournful race:
Then stay! oh, stay!

Pause and luxuriate in thy sunny plain;
Loiter, enjoy:

Once past, Thou never wilt come back again,
A second Boy.

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 breath 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. The Passionate Pilgrim. St. 12.

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 The Self-Tormentor. Act 1.
Sc. 3. F. W. Ricord's trans.

A youth to whom was given

So much of earth, so much of heaven.
WORDSWORTH-Ruth.

0.

To be young was very heaven! p.

WORDSWORTH-The Prelude. Bk. XI.

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.
