Orison Swett Marden
A young man without ambition is an old man waiting to be.
Any young man coming of age has a lot to go through. Peter Parker certainly has a lot of responsibility, and without doubt, so does Pippin - his role, his life, and how he is going to perform it. It's all about choices and how we make them.
Matthew James Thomas
I've got no respect for any young man who won't join the colors.
Nathan Bedford Forrest
Everyone finds their own version of Charles Dickens. The child-victim, the irrepressibly ambitious young man, the reporter, the demonic worker, the tireless walker.

There is this strange fog of being a young man that I would refer to as soft time. Time does not go forward there.
