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.

A young man is a theory, an old man is a fact.
E. W. Howe

John D. Rockefeller
I met in the street a very poor young man who was in love. His hat was old, his coat worn, his cloak was out at the elbows, the water passed through his shoes, - and the stars through his soul.
As a young man, even if I was going to see a play or a film by myself, I didn't feel like I was alone. There was something that was unfolding up there that brought me into it. And I recognised that. For those two hours, it made me feel like I belonged to something really good.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
