What It Means To Be Young

All grownups were once children… but only few of them remember it.

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Long ago, we were all young. It’s hard to understand what it means to be young now that we live in reality. But hopefully, you can find some understanding of it through these quotes:

“Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.” -Don Miguel Ruiz

“The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything.” -Oscar Wilde

“A young man without ambition is an old man waiting to be.” -Steven Brust

“The age I’m at now, you go from being a young girl to suddenly you blossom into a woman. You ripen, you know? And then you start to rot.” -Liv Tyler

“Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and the rest of the Ivy Leagues are worthy institutions, to be sure, but they’re not known for educating large numbers of poor young people.” -Robert Reich

“When you’re young, you just go banging about, but you’re more sensitive as you grow older.” -Deborah Kerr

“If you’re successful at a young age, no matter the profession, there has to come a time when you re-evaluate everything, what it means to you. ‘Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?’ “

“When you’re young, you believe it when people tell you how good you are. And that’s the danger you inhale. Everyone will tell you you’re a genius, which you are not, and if you understand that, you win.” -George Clooney

“Kids are naturally gifted at art from a very young age. The problem is when they get older and become self-conscious. The process should always be fun, though.” -Damien Hirst
