+ 340 All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school - my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program. Mark Zuckerberg

+ 363 And I prophesy to you who are my murderers, that immediately after my death punishment far heavier than you have inflicted on me will surely await you. Me you have killed because you wanted to escape the accuser, and not to give an account of your lives. But that will not be as you suppose: far otherwise. For I say that there will be more accusers of you than there are now; accusers whom hitherto I have restrained: and as they are younger they will be more severe with you, and you will be more offended at them. For if you think that by killing men you can avoid the accuser censoring your lives, you are mistaken; that is not a way of escape which is either possible or honorable; the easiest and the noblest way is not to be crushing others, but to be improving yourselves.

+ 315 When I was in fact a child, six and seven and eight years old, I was utterly baffled by the enthusiasm with which my cousin Brenda, a year and a half younger, accepted her mother's definition of her as someone who needed to go to bed at six-thirty and finish every bite of three vegetables, one of them yellow, with every meal. Joan Didion

+ 315 I think we may be seeing the beginnings of a resurgence of civic-mindedness in this country. Hopefully the younger generations, which came out in record numbers during the last presidential election, will pass their enthusiasm on to their children. Sandra Day O'Connor

+ 285 When I was younger I always thought, 'If I were ever a comedian I'd make it like a rock concert.' I wanted to generate that type of enthusiasm and excitement. Carrot Top

+ 388 How absurd and delicious it is to be in love with somebody younger than yourself. Everybody should try it. Barbara Pym

+ 377 It is not enough to teach a man a specialty. Through it he may become a kind of useful machine but not a harmoniously developed personality. It is essential that the student acquire an understanding of and a lively feeling for values. He must acquire a vivid sense of the beautiful and of the morally good. Otherwise he—with his specialized knowledge—more closely resembles a well-trained dog than a harmoniously developed person. He must learn to understand the motives of human beings, their illusions, and their sufferings in order to acquire a proper relationship to individual fellow-men and to the community. These precious things are conveyed to the younger generation through personal contact with those who teach, not—or at least not in the main—through textbooks. It is this that primarily constitutes and preserves culture. This is what I have in mind when I recommend the "humanities" as important, not just dry specialized knowledge in the fields of history and philosophy. Albert Einstein

+ 320 In the judgment of the most competent living mathematicians, Fraulein Noether was the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began. In the realm of algebra, in which the most gifted mathematicians have been busy for centuries, she discovered methods which have proved of enormous importance in the development of the present-day younger generation of mathematicians. Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas. Albert Einstein, New York Times, May 1, 1935

+ 299 Growing up in a Jewish matriarchal world inside the patriarchal paradise of Salt Lake City, Utah, gave me increased perspective on gender issues, as it also did my gay brother and my lesbian sister. Our younger sister is the perfect Jewish-American wife and mother, and is fiercely proud of that fact. Roseanne Barr

+ 265 With our technology, with objects, literally three people in a garage can blow away what 200 people at Microsoft can do. Bill Gates'd be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger. Steve Jobs — The New York Times, 1997

+ 171 And the elder said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is no man on earth to come upon us, as is the custom of all the earth. Bereshit 19:31

+ 186 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the elder said to the younger, Behold, last night I lay with my father. Let us give him wine to drink tonight too, and come, lie with him, and let us bring to life seed from our father. Bereshit 19:34

+ 178 So they gave their father to drink on that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know of her lying down or of her rising up. Bereshit 19:35

+ 162 And the younger, she too bore a son, and she named him Ben-ami; he is the father of the children of Ammon until this day. Bereshit 19:38

+ 158 And the Lord said to her, Two nations are in your womb, and two kingdoms will separate from your innards, and one kingdom will become mightier than the other kingdom, and the elder will serve the younger. Bereshit 25:23

+ 179 And Rebecca took the costly garments of Esau, her elder son, which were with her in the house, and she dressed Jacob, her younger son. Bereshit 27:15

+ 182 And Rebecca was told of the words of Esau, her elder son, and she sent and called Jacob, her younger son, and she said to him, "Behold, your brother Esau regrets his relationship to you and wishes to kill you. Bereshit 27:42

+ 174 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Bereshit 29:16

+ 201 And Jacob loved Rachel, and he said, I will work for you seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter. Bereshit 29:19

+ 151 And Laban said, It is not done so in our place to give the younger one before the firstborn. Bereshit 29:26

+ 171 But Israel stretched out his right hand and placed it on Ephraim's head, although he was the younger, and his left hand he placed on Manasseh's head. He guided his hands deliberately, for Manasseh was the firstborn. Bereshit 48:14

+ 165 But his father refused, and he said, I know, my son, I know; he too will become a people, and he too will be great. But his younger brother will be greater than he, and his children's fame will fill the nations." Bereshit 48:19

+ 104 When I was younger, I was more self-conscious about living up to or surpassing the expectations of others. But as you get older, you start to build confidence. Ivanka Trump

+ 87 I could never have imagined that firing 67 people on national television would actually make me more popular, especially with the younger generation. Donald Trump

+ 98 My relationship with my grandmother has gone from strength to strength. As a shy, younger man it could be harder to talk about weighty matters. It was: 'This is my grandmother who is the Queen, and these are serious historical subjects.' Prince William

+ 83 When I was younger and my parents used to always slap my hand if I was picking my nose or if I was running around screaming I was told to shut up. Prince William
