C.N. Douglas, comp. Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical. 1917.


  • 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.
  • Shakespeare.
