Famous quotes containing the words adult and/or contemporary:

    Flowers so strictly belong to youth, that we adult men soon come to feel, that their beautiful generations concern not us: we have had our day; now let the children have theirs. The flowers jilt us, and we are old bachelors with our ridiculous tenderness.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Men are so charmed with valor that they have pleased themselves with being called lions, leopards, eagles and dragons, from the animals contemporary with us in the geologic formations.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
