Famous quotes containing the words service and/or youth:
“You had to face your ends when young
Twas wine or women, or some curse
But never made a poorer song
That you might have a heavier purse,
Nor gave loud service to a cause
That you might have a troop of friends.”
—William Butler Yeats (18651939)
