I won't quit to become someone's old lady.
— Janis Joplin

When all the world is young, lad, And all the trees are green;And every goose a swan, lad,And every lass a queen;Then hey for boot and horse, lad,And round the world away;Young blood must have its course, lad,And every dog his day.When all the world is old, lad,And all the trees are brown;And all the sport is stale, lad,And all the wheels run down;Creep home, and take your place there,The spent and maimed amoung:God grant you find one face there,You loved when all was young.
— Charles Kingsley

A good heart will help you to a bonny face, my lad and a bad one will turn the bonniest into something worse than ugly.
— Emily Bronte
