Youth has its hour of glory... but too often it's only a morning glory, the flower that fades before the sun is very high.
ROBERT HARLEY HEDGES, Morning Glory (1933)

CAPTAIN JEAN-LUC PICARD, Star Trek: the Next Generation, "Too Short a Season" (1988)
Savor your youth and beauty, because wicked queens, mean stepsisters, and evil witches will try to steal them from you every time.
JIMINY CRICKET, House of Mouse, "Jiminy Cricket" (2001)
When you're young, everything feels like the end of the world. It's not, it's just the beginning.
