Oscar Wilde
“Realize your youth while you have it. Don’t squander the gold of your days, listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant, the common, and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals, of our age. Live! Live the wonderful life that is in you! Let nothing be lost upon you. Be always searching for new sensations. Be afraid of nothing”
Oscar Wilde

Sinclair Lewis
“The author says one character's definition of a classic is any book he'd heard of before he was thirty.”
Sinclair Lewis, It Can't Happen Here
