Happy International Youth Day 2016, check out top 11 quotes about youth.



In 1998, the World Conference of Ministers Responsible for Youth recommended the annual celebration of International Youth Day. The following year it was endorsed by the UN Assembly and the commemorative day has been celebrated each year on 12 August ever since.

In keeping with the day, here are some inspirational quotes for and about youth:

Youth is not a time of life; it is a state of mind; it is not a matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees; it is a matter of the will, quality of the imagination, a vigour of the emotions; it is the freshness of the deep springs of life. – Samuel Ullman

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age. – Sophia Loren

You are only young once, and if you work it right, once is enough. – Joe E Lewis

Youth is the best time to be rich, and the best time to be poor. – Euripides

Young people need models, not critics. – John Wooden

Middle age is youth without levity, and age without decay. – Doris Day

Time misspent in youth is sometimes all the freedom one ever has. – Anita Brookner

Youth is wasted on the young. – George Bernard Shaw

The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently. – Friedrich Nietzsche

Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die. – Herbert Hoover

If it was said yesterday that youth are the leaders of tomorrow, then today is the day. #YouthArise - Mercy Ebute
