Ogden Nash :
A young person is a person with nothing to learn One who already knows that ice does not chill and fire does not burn . . . It knows it can spend six hours in the sun on its first day at the beach without ending up a skinless beet, And it knows it can walk barefoot through the barn without running a nail in its feet. . . . Meanwhile psychologists grow rich Writing that the young are ones’ should not undermine the self-confidence of which.
[Ogden Nash (1902-1971), U.S. poet. “Fortunately,” Versus, 1949.]
