4 Responses to What is a Youth?

  • Ah, restrainedradical, you mention my favorite film about the law!

    I rather follow the Joe Pesci mode of less is more in opening statement, although when I was a young attorney I am afraid that my openings my first time or two resembled those of the hapless public defender.

  • Ha. That was my first thought when I saw the title of the post too, restrained. Great movie. Not familiar with this version of Romeo & Juliet.

  • “I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back any more –the feeling that I could last for ever, outlast the sea, the earth, and all men; the deceitful feeling that lures us on to joys, to perils, to love, to vain effort –to death; the triumphant conviction of strength, the heat of life in the handful of dust, the glow in the heart that with every year grows dim, grows cold, grows small, and expires –and expires, too soon, too soon –before life itself.”
